I've been hired on as seasonal and kept quite a few times. Hell last time they kept me, and when the garden center had to close most of the week they transferred me over to the design/install side to keep me on.

I get lucky with bosses that reward good workers.

whatshisname: No matter how good Christmas sales are, January and February are always really slow.


Exactly.  I worked retail for 22 years, and everyone knows inventory is light for January, run you big sales, and slowly start bringing in the new inventory mid Feb/March for Valentines and Spring Break.  Easter kicks off "normal shopping" and so on.
 
2012-12-30 03:43:38 PM  
Then again, if you hope your retail gig is going to turn either permanent or financially successful, maybe a wakeup call is in fact needed.

Some businesses cut hours in the winter because business slows down. Except they still need the staff. And the managers end up working 16 hour days and eventually get burned out and quit. And the weird thing is they pay managers more than the minimum wage slaves.

I hate Christmas so much.

Maybe sales wouldn't be so slow if everything wasn't so disgustingly overpriced. $27 for a hardcover? $65 for a video game? Up yours, assholes. You wanted higher prices, well you got 'em. Now don't be disappointed when gift lists shrink and everyone left on them only gets one item instead of multiple. The amount of money to be spent hasn't changed, so why should your sales at the new, higher prices go up? I guess you and your shareholders will just have to rent out your beach house this year instead of letting the kids use it. Awwww.

Exactly, you may look down on people in service jobs but those jobs are necessary for society as we know it to function. Not to mention they are important to the economy as we know it since we are mostly a consumer economy. Low paid jobs are here to stay, and they're growing.

One of the more obnoxious things about retail now is the introduction of the on-call shift. I know some temporary workers this season who have to call in an hour before their shift starts to see if they even have a shift that day. It really sucks if that person has arranged babysitting etc. only to find out the shift has been canceled. This affects a whole lot more people than just the worker who is getting screwed out of shifts.

That is incredibly shiatty of the employers. It's not that farking hard to draw up schedules, and if you can't afford to run people even at a minimum on the schedule, don't farking hire them. "Hiring" them to work at your convenience is just, evil.
 
2012-12-30 06:24:56 PM  
If you were expecting to be hired on a continuing full time basis after the holidays, you're at fault for deluding yourself. They are interested in keeping the bare minimum of staff to run the place, and as soon as the Christmas season is over, they are kicking your ass to the curb. You can hope for it ..sure..but try hoping in one hand, and crapping in the other, see which one fills up first.

had98c: Maybe they should have been better at selling things.


I'm great at selling things ... to customers. But they don't shop in brick & mortar stores any more.

They come in, see what you've got, ask you a million questions, let you think you're about to close them ... but they "have to think about it," which means go online for a greater selection, and purchase at prices way below your wholesale and get free freight. Yep, that popular piece of profitable merchandise you were counting on selling a ton of this holiday season is an online dealer's loss-leader .. and he's got a warehouse full of 'em.

They don't care about your "service," or your expertise, or your sage advice, or whatever value you can add. If they don't like what they buy online, they just get a call tag and send it back using the site's insanely liberal return policy and their ability to bellyache up the chain of command until someone makes a "customer satisfaction" decision to make the belligerent caller happy.

Then they come back to your store and waste another guy's time with a million questions -- the first guy they talked to either quit because he wasn't making more than his $8/hour 32-hour wage, or got fired because his sales sucked -- and go back online to get another great deal.

Retail is dead. Anyone thinking of opening a store should forget that fantasy and learn to drive a UPS truck instead.

I'm not sure why this was a big surprise to people. Even back during the 'good' Bush years, no one expected to stay much past the end of the holiday return policy, whatever the company decided that would be. It was Jan. 10th for us, and some people got cut loose earlier than that. I think Circuit City was just after the 1st. Then we got two months of a mall that looked like a set for a post apocalyptic movie...

Yet, my friend who was working for the Sears photo studio was all surprised when he found out they were cutting hours. I was like do you not remember your two year stint at Johnnie Rocket's?

And yet she's complaining at the start of the article that she's only working 10 hour weeks. And most of that is just standing around with 10 other employees and no customers. And really if she's expecting to pay off her thousands of dollars in credit bills, I don't think working 20 hours at minimum wage is going to make that much of a dent.
