    I work at a drug store chain. You would know it if you heard the name. A few weeks ago we hired a seasonal night cashier. He s an older man (40s at least). Last night it slowed down, and he was ringing and I was refilling the batteries. An older cop came in and he starts checking him out. The they had a conversation that wen tlike this: COP: How ve you been? SCOTT: Okay. COP: How are your parents? SCOTT: They ve both passed away. COP: Sorry to hear this. SCOTT: No answer. COP: So will you be at the 25th reunion in June. SCOTT: No. COP: No? Why not? SCOTT: I don t want to. COP: Why is that? SCOTT: I don t think I need to explain myself to you. COP: Sorry you feel that way. If you change your mind, we have a Facebook page... SCOTT: Thanks. I have other customers to ring out. So the cop left, and the next lady said, "You were rude to that police officer." He said, "I m sorry you feel that way." So I don t know if the lady or the cop will complain, but he was not rude. But here they push customer service. Like we have to walk the customer to the item if they ask where something is. I don t think he s going to get fired this close to Christmas, but I d hate him to get in to trouble. But I kind of thought the cop was out of line here not Scott. I mean chatting with people you know is okay, but I m guessing they went to school but weren t friends.

I've been searching and searching but the only full time jobs I can find are those that require Class B licenses with endorsements, traveling up to 10 miles away (I have no car and public transport is bad), or require some qualification I cannot easily obtain. Where can I find one?

    Best answer: There's mostly female staff that pick orders in the ware house that I work for.
    Look for equal opportunity employers, that means you should get equal pay and benefits if you're full time.
    Do your job, try not to make too many mistakes. Once you gain some experience you can apply for other jobs and you should get raises when you get your performance reviews on the anniversary of your hire date. Some ware houses have better opportunities for moving up then others.
    Better paying jobs usually belong to supervisors or managers, unless you have experience as a manager or if you have a few years of leadership experience you're not likely to get those jobs any time soon. So be prepared to be in the same position for a few years before they even consider you for a supervisor position.

I and another new employee both think that work load is too high. I can't sleep at night because I'm frustrated with work, even on the weekends.
