Management that doesn’t really bother with what you need in terms of days off and hours. Minimum wage and only 16 hours a week when I pay for rent, food, etc. customers can be off putting and don’t care what you have to say when you specifically have a set list of points you need to talk to every single customer about. Not a good job if you can’t handle being the least important thing in the store to people.
