I've worked in retail, fast food, and customer service for some time now, and I've learned some things along the way. Here are some of those things that I would like to share.
First, I've learned this one in the past month or so. I know all systems aren't the same, but if you are using EBT, please tell your cashier because they don't know unless you tell them. From personal experience, I don't know, and I just assume you are using a debit or credit card.
Second, cashiers can't control the prices. Prices will change. So, please don't get mad if and when they do because they will.
Thirdly, people who work in retail and customer service are human beings. They have feelings. Just like you and me. Keep that in mind. Plus, they also make mistakes. They aren't perfect.
Fourth, they know how to do their job, and if they don't know how to do something, they will find someone who does. You don't have to tell them how to do their job.
Fifth, they are not stupid. Just because they work in retail or in customer service, does not mean they are stupid. The people that I have worked with are not stupid and are pretty educated.
And as a reminder, be patient when it comes to fast food. Things do happen. There might be a rush, and it might take time for the cooks to get your food done. Trust me, it will get to you. Some food also takes longer than others to cook. If you go through the drive through, and they ask you to park, there is probably a good reason for it.
People who work in retail, fast food, or customer service, it does take a lot of work. It's not easy either. f
