Going for a new job today! Has anyone ever worked in retail?
I hear its a nightmare, but im going for a job at horseland so im thinking it will be good seeing as this will be something im passionate about and I will have something in commin with the customers plus hopefully discounts haha.
Deciding I don't want to be an electrical engineer and leaving my job will be hardest thing ill have ti do but its just not where my heart is!

Haha I've worked pretty much every job there is that requires no post-secondary education! I've worked retail at a clothing store and then cashier at a grocery store - not quite the same, but I actually didn't mind the cashier job - it was just down the road, couldn't quite walk but hardly any drive. The clothing store was a nightmare - I'm usually a bit more quiet by nature, and my boss kept telling me I should be more 'involved' with the customers (asking what they were looking for, if I could help them, showing them things, etc). Personally, as a shopper, I HATE it when salespeople won't leave you alone so it was torture for me to try and do that to other people. I would imagine that a tack shop (I'm assuming that's what 'horseland' is?) would be a little different. I hope it goes well! Keep us posted!
