Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey, Goodbye!

December 14, 2007

I calculated that I have been at Paul’s Warehouse for about 31 months. During that time I have had quite a good time. The people I work with are cool, I get paid (not much) to do very little, and I get heavily discounted stuff. Nonetheless, I am considering quiting. The place isn’t as fun as it used to be. Just this week I found out that ‘Pauls’ Warehouse’ head office and warehouse are moving to our store. This means that Paul and all his high associates will be working in the same building as us, and that. In the last couple of days, all Pauls’ hot shot high officials have come in to check stuff out, and me, not knowing who they are, make my self look like an idiot trying to serve them… This got the better of me today. I served some fat guy. We didn’t have his shoe, so I left him to look for another pair. As a salesman, I’m not in-your-face, and I let the customer control sale mostly. I made sure I was in full view of him so he could ask for assistance if he needed it. Instead he reported the staff to our regional manager who was in today. She came out all guns blazing shouting at me for not adequately serving the customer. Did the customer tell this regional manager that I was the only one that actually helped the man in the first place…of course not. I then served him and the whole time he was like “i must be your most annoying customer.” While I calmly replied “why no sir”, while secretly wishing to bash him with the shoe he was trying on. So it’s most likely good bye Paul’s, but I’m not fazed, three years retail experience might just come in handy.

  1. If all the big bosses come to your store you might get some decent air conditioning at last

  2. I’d find another job first.
    Anyway, I don’t know what you’re worried about. I thought you were friends with Paul. You’ve got his number right?
