retail is slow as fuck

Right after holiday season, things slow down drastically. Was like this last year. Why do I care? bc 3 of us are not on schedule! What to do?

Find another job. I worked retail and it was awful. Start looking now.

Re: retail is slow as fuck

I work retail, however the company I work for is badass so I do not have any real reason to leave... so what if they slow down after the holidays? I need the time for school and such. AND I don't have any real expenses yet so I don't need that much money coming in...

Re: retail is slow as fuck

Harder you work, more benefits you get with people that schedule (more hours)
and the work is easy as fuck. I enjoy no activity. Get payed to stand around and talk. Retail is great if it's not busy and you're not working with ass holes.

Re: retail is slow as fuck

January is always the slow month. It starts to pick up around the first week of Feb for V-Day, then drops off for a week, then picks up again around April.

As a part-time associate this REALLY sucks, as a full-time manager it's more frustrating and annoying.

Re: retail is slow as fuck

I'm in retail, but for some reason our weekends haven't slowed down (other than the snowfall which killed us on our busiest day, Sunday). It's strange really, but as I'm on a week paid holiday - I couldn't care less as I'm paid to be at home and not be there.

Although being in work when it's dead seems like a good thing - with nothing to do it gets EXTREMELY boring.

Re: retail is slow as fuck

I trained myself in almost every department in my store, when someone calls out or if they need a hand somewhere they'll call me first.
I wouldn't quit that job, instead you should just get a second job... which is what I did and its been working fabulously
