Every job I've held previous to this was very casual (family stuff, tutoring, teaching piano, volunteering without pay, etc.). Next week, though, I start a generic retail job (cross training sales associate and backroom) at Target. Apparently work like this is pretty soul-numbing.
Just wondering how you retail/stock monkeys get through an 8 hour shift. I've honestly never had to deal with 8 hours under the scrutiny of a supervisor who needs to meet deadlines and all. How boring is it? How can I make it less boring?
