Rhymes with 'Tracey's'

With tongue in cheek, I am happy to say I'm a contributing member of the workforce again.

I'm working as a sales clerk at a major department store (hence the title of today's blog) and yesterday was my training day.  I spent 7 hours locked in a cramped room, staring at a computer, learning about things like diversity and why their store credit card is so fooking amazing.

I'm not thrilled with the job - I haven't made this little since 1999 - but it's better than being stuck at home making $0.00 an hour.  So off I go, and train I must.

I took this picture while in the middle of the training program.  The company tracks how many credit applications you take, and the bottom left corner is an example of the report they give you.


Are you seeing this right?  Let's zoom in, shall we?

Yes, that's right.

Until now, all the examples they used were random names, like John Johnson.  Now, all of a sudden, Adam West swoops in and kicks Christopher Reeve's ass in credit applications.

I guess Batman *is* better than Superman.  At least, as far as sales superpowers go...

Yeah, apologies for the grainy shot. I was at work, in an 'internet free' room, so I had to snap the pic with my phone.

And thanks for the kudos. Today was day one of post-training, and the managers love me so much I thought I was gonna get a bj as a thank you...

Good luck with your new job!

Hans Kr├╝ger said...

I think it's a bit unfair, since Batman has all those funky gadgets to catch customers. Or do you all get equipment like that, like a batterang and stuff? That would make up for the shitty salary, I guess ...
