A Book in Review: Retail Hell

Retail Hell By: Freeman Hall
Non-fiction, memoir 258 pages
Book Count: 60

This is the true story of what its like to work at a big department store, anyone that has ever worked retail understands the title, but remember when it happens to someone else its comedy. It deals with pointless store regulations, useless employee moral boosters, co-workers, crazy customers, and all the other hells of stores. Also because, the author got stuck working the handbag (NOT purse) department because he is a "free-spirit" (gay) there is the fun of knowing nothing about what you are selling and having no training before you start as well as the general distrust of the people your commission is from. (Or as its known business as usual.)
