No, but if you have an accident / injury they have to for insurance purposes. Also, if they have reason to believe you are under the influence. Please, don't embarrass yourself and step on the little dignity you may have if you do show up under the influence.

Chilled, laid back, and easy as long as you do what you supposed to be doing. That can be with just about any retail job. Yes, people can complain about management or leads, but as long as you stay out of the workplace sissy fit circle and do your job you will be okay.

Help your associates out!!! Schedule enough people so that there is proper coverage! Appreciate the hard work your associates put in day in and day out. Crack down on team leads and make sure they actually do things as well, rather than walk around and do nothing. Make sure all managers are on the same page, so things actually get done the right way the first time around. And don’t talk down on or give attitude to the associates that help out the most.
