    I will never ever be shopping at GameStop AGAIN. Ever. They already sucked but now I have some fuel behind my decision. Thanks for this video

            They were the ones trying to commit time card fraud by telling you that you can't be on the clock at your desk. If you are doing any job function regardless of what it is they have to pay you and by law, you must be on the clock. If they say you must do job functions off the clock they are breaking federal labor laws. I would have lawyered up and sued them for wrongful termination

                Such bullshit. They can make whatever last minute rules they want and get rid of you. This is why we need unions. Big box retail can basically do whatever they want. Lovely American capitalism. Workers need so much more protection than they have now.

                  Target. I was there for five years or so. The old timers who made double what they paid the new grunts were targeted more. They see how much you’re paid. Target is SO hypocritical. They play all PC and goody goody. Underneath, they don’t give a SHIT about their employees. I was actually told the my don’t want corporate to know how overworked and underpaid people are. That’d make it harder for them to execute all the shitty things they do to the store workers. Two faced and totally crappy. I hate them. They made it so hard to keep your job. I finally quit. Disgusting company. I try not to shop there anymore. They’re not what you think.

                    Oh yeah... another thing. The first manager I had at Target had anger issues. He threw pallets at people. Punched metal poles and bloodied his knuckles. All because they put so much pressure on everyone to do more than one job. So yeah. Awful working enjoyment. They’re assholes. Never again will I put up with that shit. They can suck it. It’s so wonderful when you quit a job like that. Freeing.

                    Moral of the story - HR is there to protect the company and ASMs are bitches. I left GameStop on my own accord but my ASM was a jackass up there with these idiots.

                      GameStop is garbage. Last time I was there was in January of 2010 getting a Mad Catz XBox 360 Controller for PC and that was it. I was done after that. Last time I had a decent experience at Gamestop was in May or June of 2005 when I was getting a used copy of Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes for Gamecube. I'm a PC gamer now, have been for almost 10 years and when I get a PS4 this Black Friday? I'll get my shit from Amazon or Newegg. Fuck retail now and for the last 10 years at the very least

                                      Happy for you man. Happens with well paying factories in small towns that pay well but make you feel like a prisoner and a slave for a handful of good money. I quit after a simple 3 years even after getting a good paying job there and I also felt relieved when I quit.

                                            You quit, and now have no chance at unemployment until you find a new job. Very smart decision...

                                              That is not necessarily admitting guilt. They probably figured out what the cost of litigation would be to fight and win, then took some money off that number, then offered him that.

                                              Or they hoped he was low on cash, so he would take a low number to cut his losses in case he was scared he might not win or that he couldn't afford litigation all the way to a win.

                                                He wanted to hug you because he felt guilty for bald-faced lying about the instructions he gave to you.

                                                Not only did he lie, but he implied you were lying when you weren't. And he did it in front of others, and he knew it would get you in trouble. And you were doing what he asked you to and it should have gotten HIM in trouble.

We had 1 store manager, the about 4 or 5 floor managers plus department managers. none of them really coordinated, you'd get told one thing by one manager then 30min later get in trouble by a different manager for doing it that way. really you had to kiss some major ass to stay under the radar in that place. I was there about a your then bounced.

                                                                                            Retailers learned something a long time ago, they can treat their workers as disposable assets because for every one they use up and knock out there will be 10 more wanting the job. So long as the fat cats at the top get their cut of the loot, that's all they care about. They don't care about their workers because they don't have to, and it's a lot more profitable for them if they don't. Service industries don't deserve to have good people working for them. They only deserve the people who are learning what they don't want to do the rest of their lives until they've had enough (which is taking less and less time as the years go by) and move along on their merry way. Corporate greed has reduced a massive segment of our job market into insignificant dog meat. It's like you said too, it's like being institutionalized. For one reason or another, people get afraid to leave. I think it's knowing that wherever you do end up that it will be more of the same or worse. At least staying where you are, you know what to expect. Meanwhile, we struggle to put on a happy face doing jobs we absolutely despise for what? Not so happy endings.
