I fucking hate rewards cards. i hate that corporate is a bitch about making people sign up and use this crap. (it’s actually kind of creepy) i hate that my manager is an ass monkey and makes a huge deal about having EVERY. SINGLE. CUSTOMER put their damn phone number in the pin pad so we could track their transactions and so they can have the sale prices. (you don’t get the sale prices if you don’t have a rewards card which causes a lot of problems with bad customers who dont want one)
The store gets graded by district about making people use a rewards card, and signing up for one, so if we don’t have most customers do that (because most just straight up REFUSE TO) then WE’RE the ones who get in trouble for it.
And I always have people who, when i ask if they have one, say things like “oh it doesn’t matter, i dont need one.” (fuck you) or “yeah i have one but im not worried about using it right now.” (fuck you) or “i dont think it’ll do anything for cigarettes so i don’t wanna use it right now.” (FUCK YOU)
OR if they say they dont have one, but i see that they have stuff on sale
i’ll say: “oh would you like one? they’re free and will make the (insert item(s) on sale here) cheaper.”
Customer: “no thanks.”
Customer: “hey! i thought the (item name) was on sale!!”
Me: “yeah, it is, but you’d need a rewards card. you sure you dont want one?”
Customer: “NO NEVER MIND, I DONT WANT IT THEN.”
Then the customer takes off and buys nothing.
Gee, thanks corporate, your dumb ass policies just lost our store a sale and possibly a customer.
I get paid $7.50 an hour for this shit. i just don’t care anymore about store scores. i can’t wait til my new job calls me in to start working.
Also when i’m done with this job, you may have lost me as a customer, too.
