Working at General Pants Co. coming from food and customer service into retail wasnt as different as i expected.
The first 5 shifts i had were very enjoyable, i loved socialising, retrieving stock and helping customers but after that i realised that most of my coworkers were very rude and i felt very judged, especially being the youngest employee.
I came from a great company with Dockside Group to a company where you couldnt be yourself unless you were invited into the 'group' of the store.
I learnt alot about keeping a poker face when feeling left out or negative comments towards or about me and focused on my job and the customers experience.
A typical day at work would be to sign in, go to a designated area for an hour or two then change areas with other coworkers.
negative working environment
