This is a job for young people only.

The job is so stressful! Workshift is variable (biological clock affected). Every second is counted while you are working on the floor. You get scolded by irate customers from time to time. You constantly receive reprimands from supervisor and management who keep a watchful eye of your every move. Pressure here, pressure there... It's like a baseball game wherein strikes and fouls determine if you will still stay with the game.

That is any job you have. Being directly responsible for the happiness of customers is the hardest part of your job, and I don't envy you that. Just take some breaths and do your best. You can't please everyone, but sometimes it can be fun to try. It's all in how you tackle it.

You're right. It can be fun, it can be challenging and it can also be frustrating. Sometimes you have to pretend to be somebody else just to please your customers. "Fake it! until you make it!", as they say... After spending quite some time with the job, I think I'm already beginning to experience the ill effects, hypertension and all that... I am not yet ready to go you know, so... got to find another less stressful means of earning a living.
