    Heh, "lately".

    To be truthful I probably wasn't this stores best employee.

    I was helpful and knowledgeable to the best of my abilities when it came to customers...

    But I didn't sell service plans

    or media storage
    or accessories
    or walkman/keyboard/karaoke machines/whatever else they dumped in out department in an effort to make it more "sales orientated".

    Pretty much all I did was help people find CD's, and tell people to buy anamorphic DVD's so they wouldn't have to buy their movies again when widescreen TV's became popular (which they did).

    I'm going to attempt to put a resume in today!

    Do you have a Drivers License? I used to be a Valet and parking cars all day is not too bad of a job and the tips are great. You can fund yourself working only 3 days a week.

    Go to college Monday thru thursday and work Friday, Saturday, Sunday.
    I could have a drivers license if I was living in certain other provinces or states, but I have to wait another year before I can even get my "New Drivers" License. But when I get my drivers license I'll be sure to consider this option.

    In Canada the recession isn't as bad as it is in the states, I just hope it gets better down there soon because I'm wanting to move to Arizona to be closer to my extended family while I'm going to school.

    The best part was the 8-15 hours of over-time a week. Plus the extra money for working over-night.

    But retails does indeed suck ass. I thought working in a gunstore would be a dream come true. A lot of it is fun...but some of the customers are total douches/total morons.
    I have a friend that works at the grocery store here, he says there only hiring for day shifts.

    Anyways after reading the responses here I'm putting my resume in for the Theatre and the local game store where I shop regularly.

    I worked at a grocery store, and it was pretty good. I worked in Fast Food before that and it was dreadful... but meh.

    I didnt mind working mornings at the grocery store. After work quite a few times, I'd be fucking exhausted but satisfied with what I have completed.

    Throughout history, suspicion has always bred conflict. The real conflict, though, resides in people's hearts. This conflict has just begun.
