Entire work experience depends on who's "in charge"
Vendor (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – May 2, 2019
I consider myself one of the lucky ones because my sales rep is the most sensible person in a position of authority I've met in a very long time. If it wasn't for him, the job would be much more stressful. As with most retail jobs, the job itself is ridiculously easy, but the people in charge are idiots. They don't think it's possible to exist without playing politics. We get a new manager every couple years or so, and they always start out attacking employees over dumb stuff in an attempt to make themselves look good. The job is literally stocking cookies and crackers on store shelves. Yet they treat people like criminals for simply doing their jobs- they constantly watch people and then make false accusations without asking any questions, usually through a nasty, sarcastic email or an unexpected store visit. I like the freedom of not having direct management while I'm working, but it's extremely difficult to become a full time employee here. If you do become full time, they load extra work onto you, yet at the same time riding you about overtime.
