Do You (Customer) Think About Our Feelings?

I wish I could add polls to blog-entries.

Curious: When you shop at Walmart (or any major retailer), do you think/care about how you treat the Associates? Because, to be honest, most of you treat us like dirt - and while I realize "the customer is always right" and "you get paid to do this" are common mindsets nowadays, when I'm getting paid 7.25 an hour, I don't really feel like I'm paid enough to be treated as less than human by the customers.

    You should go stop by notalwaysright.com it can take a load off.

    I pay attention because my job experience has involved being treated poorly by customers. My first job was a janitor, and they treated me more like a maid, even to the point they broke a glass vase and left it there all day on the aisle at a bank(I only did nightly cleaning).

    ^ I can top that, and I'm not a janitor

    The maintenance crew never seems to be around when things like this happen, but I'm always finding dirty diapers - usually out in the parking lot, about ten feet from a trash can. But, to my shock and horror, last week I found one INSIDE the store, in the middle of an aisle, near the Courtesy Desk, fifteen feet away from a trash can.

    What? You're not a maid robot whose sole program is to please your loyal customers?


    There's also the Customers Suck! forums.

    Try cleaning up at a bar after someone decided he both needed to puke and "miss the toilet" (take that as you will)all over the walls and all over the floor.

    A dirty diaper is a good day for a janitor.

    I'm sure it is, especially at a bar, but a dirty diaper in the middle of an aisle in WALMART??? I mean, what were they even DOING with a dirty diaper that far from the bathroom?

    I always thank the people who work at stores. I also try to be really polite and try to do my business as fast as possible.

    Same here.

    I admire people who work at stores. With my as of lately increasing temper, I don't think I could do such a job.

    And I can't stand people who treat them like dirt.

    I never converse with the people at the stores. And if I do I'm short and polite about it.

    I try to be nice, partly because it's common courtesy. Also partly because it's more likely the person serving you will do a good job. But I don't really go to Walmart much, because I hear employees are treated badly there. Maybe the kind of person likely to shop at Walmart is likely to treat Walmart's employees badly? I'm sorry your treated badly, though! My heart goes out to you, man!

    Thanks for the sentiment.

    Fortunately, I work in a far more appreciated position now than I did then, am paid more, and have finally grown a spine and learned not to take the sort of crap I used to from self-entitled customers.
