Just take a job in retail if you want to find out how much bullshit you can stand. You have many reasons to groan and roll your eyes, from demanding and lengthy shifts to lousy management. But the people who cause the most rage are undoubtedly the consumers.
Many of the staff members of the retail companies are united by the subreddits “Target” and “Trader Joe’s,” which offer a much-needed forum for venting.

#9. The Art Of Arrangement
The moderators of “Target” believe that the worst Team Members have about their jobs are poor salary and high demands for their work, but there are also cyclical issues.
The moderators responded when questioned about customers that what particularly irks them is when they return unwanted products randomly to any locations within the store and also when they leave trash in random locations like on shelves or in carts.

Retail employees claim that their occupations keep them socially engaged and mentally stimulated, but Mercer researchers found that “the disadvantages currently outweigh the advantages for them. Every day, they discover the work to be hectic, overwhelming, and unfulfilling.
