BankerGirl wrote an interesting post the other day with some advice for fledgling financial professionals. I particularly liked point #2: No job is beneath you, which reminded me of a recent experience I had at Sears.
On Sunday I visited my local Sears to buy a garden hose. As we were walking into the store I noticed trash everywhere. It looked like we were shopping in a slum. It was horrible. Then, as I walked into the store, there were FOUR employees just standing around doing nothing! Why the heck couldn’t one of them pull his head out of his *** and go pick up some trash?
That’s one my biggest pet peeves in the retail business: people standing around doing nothing. There’s almost ALWAYS something to do (go take a look at the restroom!).
Anyway, sorry to rant. Blame it on BankerGirl!
