>>9590602 I want to be a retail slave and make 20 an hour. Fuck I need to move out and save money for my autistic life. How the fuck do I get hired at these places? I have a year of sales experience but no former retail experience.
I also worked for ZARA and it was terrible. The store I trained at wasn't that bad, but when our new location was built and I was sent there shit hit the fucking fan. They have really weird policies. Working at h&m was much better but I quit them for ZARA oops. Have an interview with American Apparel tomorrow...we'll see how that goes
>>9591027 I always see rich tacky Chinese FOBS when I go there. Still think it's one of the better malls tho, haven't been to Eatons Centre in ages but...if you're downtown why would you go to a mall
Currently working at Urban Outfitters. Pretty nice environment tbh. My schedule is mainly set up so I work closing shifts everyday, so I rarely have to interact with customers, and that late into the day it's usually just old folks trying to buy their hipster kids a gift
>>9591053 Uhhhh ok go to American Apparel if you want a retail job. I don't see how it's possible to get rejected unless you're a highschooler with 0 experience or look inbred. The entire process was too casual I almost feel like it wasn't real
>go to open call last Friday. Talk to the girl holding it for about 5 minutes. >generic questions: describe your style, what do you know about the company, past experience. etc. Get told that if the location I wanna work at is interested I'll get a call next week >store calls me yesterday, came in today. talked with the store manager and assist-manager for literally 2 minutes. >basically they just asked for my availability and responsibilities. hired on the spot
>>9591006 $15-20 an hour is roughly minimum wage here in Australia. Places I want to work at include Zara, gap, polo Ralph lauren, cotton on, etc (any clothing brand really). Funnily enough the clothing stores rejected me but Apple gave me an interview, couldn't make it past second stage though.
I worked at A&F on and off for like 1 1/2 years. Shitty job, shitty clothes, but I fucked like 5 chicks from there. Can't complain about a place that goes out of it's way to hire stupid attractive people.
>Working at Urban Outfitters >Always on time, stay late whenever they ask >Get treated like shit because I wasn't in the clique >Everyone I was friends with their quit about 3 months after I started >Worked literally 2 days one of the months I was working there
This is when shit got really bad >Mom finds out she has cancer, this is probably 4 months after she had a stroke >Tell them I need less hours so I can spend time with her and help her out. At the time my mom had a walker and could do almost nothing on her own and needed someone to get groceries and just do normal shit for her >The main manager acts like a pissant about it even though I had a spotless record at the time >Called off some days because she wanted me around and I wasn't about to say no >A couple weeks "Anon when can your schedule go back to normal?" >"I'm not sure I just want to have as much time available for my mom." >Jerk me around more >Get fired because I went to see her one day when I was supposed to be "on call" and she was in the hospital again
FUCK URBAN OUTFITTERS. I have more stories if anyone is interested
>smaller store with less staff, get steady 25~ hours a week >P O S T C H R I S T M A S >get 4 hours every 2 weeks >work with the same people all the time >the same terrible music all the time >customers are dumb as shit
Could be worse though, at least they let me dress however I want
There's way less of a employee hierarchy @ my location cuz we just opened 4 months ago and everyone is pretty young, around 17-21.
Some of the girls are str8 KUNTS though, just have this bitchy demeanor about them and a hugely inflated sense of their social value and try to be bossy as fuck
I don't take that kind of silliness and don't do favors when they're obviously less of an actual task that needs to be completed and way more of a weird power thing like "Let's see if I can get this guy to follow my orders"
So many ppl @ work seem to think that UO is like the pinnacle of cooldom (?) or something and try very hard to be the "UO" type of person
Can't blame em though we've all been there, work environment just feels like high school
>>9598512 Exactly. It was weird when I was working there and follow a bunch of them on instagram they just try to live up to the "urban outfitters lifestyle". It's like dude you're like 27/28 working in retail chill the fuck out. You could never pull that shit, imagine a construction worker that goes home and has to arrange his house with orange cones and hard hats and fluorescent signs because that's the aesthetic of his job.
>>9593634 I've never gone into that store but it looks dumb as fuck >>9593282 >>9592944 To get a job at either of those do I just need to have a nice body? Or do I need to have a better than average face too?
