A recent forum popped up with one of the worst things being retail, so I thought I'd ask how many people have worked retail

Could people say if they got out as well, just to give the poor buggers still working retail hope.

I worked 3 years in retail before starting work in IT Engineering and Software Development.

It's even worse in Japan! Brown nosing and kissing ass are what we are told to do no matter how blatant. I like the fact I don't have to bow to anyone in this country!

Yes I had a friend help me get this job who soon quit a month after I was hired. The store was located on the poorer side of town and we had the most uncouth customer base. I barely lasted a year had to quit because my manager was worried about me for being involuntarily hospitalized.

Yes, and I am most glad to not be doing so anymore. I do end of life care now for seniors, and that is less stressful!

Yes, but it's not that bad.
the problem with the retail industry from my experience was poor management and people being people. these can be in any industry and I have found plenty of each at other jobs.

Yes, I have. It was okay, not great, some difficult customers, but I had a good manager that helped with that. ...
