I worked for Whole Foods, that stuff in the prepared foods section you pay top dollar for isn’t even organic. It’s not even from the store. We’d go buy ingredients from Costco. Whole Foods tries to justify you paying so much money for your meals because it’s all organic and fresh ingredients but it’s a lie. Also the hot bar is just reheated leftovers from the day before.

I am a welder for a company that builds rollercoasters… Every single weld is inspected and x-rayed for any defect. So I guess this doesn’t apply but just so everyone can feel a little bit safer I figured I’d let you internet people know.

It is against Walmart’s company policy for hourly employees to call 911 in the event of an emergency. Rather, they must notify the nearest manager, which could take anywhere from minutes to weeks depending on where the manager is, what they are doing, whether the hourly employee has a walkie, etc. Employees can be, and have been, fired for calling 911 to report an in-store emergency.

In a call centre, we’re more likely to waive admin fees if you’re nice to us and we like you. Also we’re more likely to charge you (more) if you’re rude or patronising.

Teacher – it’s that time of year to make class placements for next year. Every year there are two or three teachers in the school (elementary) who are so awful, we cry over which students we have to ‘sacrifice’ to them and hope they are strong enough to survive a year with Mr. or Mrs. So-and-So.
Valet driver here, dont leave your drugs in the car. A kid took a pound out of a customers car a few years back and the dude came back FLIPPIN out screaming at the manager. When the manager finally asked what was stolen and he told him weed, my manager just said “oh. Well you can file a police report then”
I worked at a car company for about a year; assembly line. Most factories don’t do inspections after a car is assembled; they just pack ’em up and roll out. Keep that in mind when checking out new cars, especially middle ground brands.
