My co-manager is a douche

Szayel was here
Okay, listen Mr. I-Have-the-Voice-of-a-Twelve-Year-Old-so-I-Must-Compensate-by-Making-Everyone's-Life-Miserable, I work in softlines now. S-O-F-T-L-I-N-E-S. I fought tooth and nail to LEAVE the front end since November, and now finally the only reason they let me escape was for mental health reasons. I'm not about to go rushing back there so I can have customers bitch and complain at me and making my mental dysfunctions worse.

Oh, and guess what? You're making it worse. Take your girl scout cookies and get the HELL out of my face.

Ehh...I don't know if I'd take softlines over cashiering. Hardlines? You bet. But I *hate* folding clothes after I've already folded them three times and dozens of douchebags have ripped through them. I had this very problem when I worked in the men's and infants departments at Target...ugh! From my vantage point, I'd rather be a "scan 'n bagger" (as I've heard them called by some) than be someone else's personal maid.

Then again, I don't have the mental health problems/dysfunctions you speak of, so that's probably easier for me to say, lol.

Eh, just be glad they didnt make you a door greeter.

Oh I feel you on this one.

I'm currently a cashier who's in the process of switching to softlines (women's apparel). I think the switch will help me with stress and the emotional break downs I've been having.

I ended up doing ladies too. I enjoy it so very much; but they've called for register trained EVERY DAY since I started there, and have expected me to come up EVERY DAY. -_-; It hasn't even been a full week yet, ffs.

Well I'm glad you enjoy it. I hope I will to. I need this so bad because there are times where I have been so close to telling off a customer.

Sounds like me.

But yes, softlines is wonderful. No one bothers you, and you can go at your own pace, so long as you at least get most of the tables folded and looking somewhat decent by the end of your shift. The managers (at least in my store; most of them are realistic) know that customers just tear through everything in the department and put it back where ever they feel like it, so they don't expect it to be immaculate. The majority of your interactions with customers go like, "Where's this?" "Over there." "Okay."

Oh, and you can take your breaks whenever you want. I've taken it upon myself now that every time they call for register trained, I'll mysteriously need a break. >>;

Must be nice.

Our softlines (I work in Infants/Girls) department is filled with the cattiest old women I've ever met. They watch over you like a hawk and go tattle on you for any little thing THEY feel is wrong. BAH.

Now THAT sounds like my front end. T_T

Sounds like heaven.
