Stories

I am a former bookseller who was there for twelve years. I loved the job, but left because I was being forced out. I got a not at standards evaluation, followed by two IPs. The accusations came out of nowhere. I had to leave or else I would have been terminated due to poor job performance. SM manufactured things, ASM and MM went along. SM had favorites who could do anything.

I would like to hear from others with similar stories and also from curremt booksellers who are facing the same treatment.

RE: Forced out
Learn from the past but don't live there.

Consider going back to school.

Avoid retail at all cost.

Never stress over a stupid job.

Know that companies that don't have the money will always be looking for ways to get rid of you. Most of the time it has nothing to do with you or how well you are doing but more about cutting cost.

Jobs come and go so don't stress over it. Education last forever!
