Working a retail job is hardly the sort of thing that gets most employees springing out of bed in the morning. It involves a lot of hard work and long hours. Retail positions are also often amongst the lowest-paid jobs out there. So although they all know it’s a part of the job, the last thing a retail employee needs is having to deal with difficult customers. Steer clear of these examples and you might just get in their good books. Here are 20 Ways To Make A Retail Employee Hate You…
IGNORE THEIR GREETINGS
Just say hi back. They’re not trying to make you buy something. Or here’s a radical approach: say hello first!
ASK THEM TO CHECK THE STORE ROOM
Even when they just told you that thing you’re looking for is sold out.
HAND OVER MONEY INCONSIDERATELY
Please deposit into the cashier’s outstretched hand, out of a purse or wallet. Not thrown onto the counter. Not out of your bra.
TELL YOUR ENTIRE LIFE STORY
There’s a difference between breezy chit-chat and telling the employees about your divorce and haemorrhoids.
SAY YOU’RE NEVER SHOPPING AT THEIR STORE AGAIN
If you’ve ever hit anyone with this old favorite, it really doesn’t have the impact you think. If you’re being that much of a jerk, it’s probably what the employee wants.
