I have a really shitty job at a clothing store that was new to my town and was just opening so we had to set up the store from scratch. I have a year of retail experience, which was more than any of the other girls that applied, I was there waiting to get trained and my manager is on the phone with a girl interviewing her on the phone! she hired this girl in front of me to be a sales associate, this girl’s only experience was working at McDonalds! (my bff works at mickey d’s and its nothing like retail) and then another girl that got hired (after me) to be a sales associate is only 17 and a junior in high school. my manager lied to me when she hired me, saying I would be a sales associate working on the floor selling to customers, I find out from a district manager that i’m really a stock/inventory processors. Naturally i was pissed that they hired 2 sales associates after me that were less qualified than me! So i go talk to my manager and tell her this isn’t what i signed up for and there was another girl i worked with that felt the same way. I told my manager that i wanted to be on the sales floor and she said she couldn’t put on the floor due to “sales goals” and not even a week later the other stock girl gets promoted to being half sales associate half stock. Now I am the only girl that goes to college on the whole staff, which is sad because they’re all my age, I feel discriminated against because I am the only person that goes to school! i only go twice a week so i’m available 5 days a week!! I am 6 feet tall and size 14 and the rest of the girls that work there are petite. our store sells sizes 0-24 so I think i represent for plus sized women way better than the skinny bitches there. I have a certificate in marketing and i know how to sell. once i was out on the floor for 20 minutes because my manager was on the phone ( i heard her gossiping about a fellow employee) and they needed me on the floor. I sold over 100 dollars worth of stuff in 20 minutes and my manager missed the whole thing. just my luck.
