Retail Shift Supervisor in Costa Mesa:
Pros: Working with people I consider my friends is the biggest plus to my work week.
Cons: Snooty customers who complain about the world not revolving around them 24/7. Corporate compliance checklists that are filled out and not verified, due to lack, time are a daily pointless task. Angry drugged up customers don't know a thing about their medical insurance so you get the blame. There is never enough efficient employees working at one time to finish the endless tasks. Trash digging bums that steal trash receipts to complete (stolen) merchandise returns stress me out. Security cameras cannot be used to identify criminals due to lack of picture quality are useless. Management place favorites as to who is allowed to be late to work, get promotions, or get extra help on tasks. Well dressed customers with 1st world problems who cry at the stress of not being able to connect their phones to a photo kiosk machine need to reassess their emotional priorities.
