  1. I hope my job gets outsourced to Pakistan/India/Phillipines, there is just too much bullshit involved. The only problem is, there are no jobs around. I need to have a job. There needs to be some serious change here so I can maintain my sanity and source of income. No one wants to stand up to management, because the corporate guys could fire us all in a heartbeat. Can anyone offer any solutions to make them change their policies? We can't unionize, they'd just fire us all. We've asked our supervisors for change, and nothing happens. Also, does anyone else have a similar experience in customer service?

    TL:DR: management is setting impossible requirements for us lowly employees. I dont want to lose my job. How do I influence change in the corporate machine?

      I worked at a duty free store (ie selling booze, tobacco, and touristy crap at the border) for two summers and never really had any issues with customers. You'd think that a border would be a high-stress area, but most people who come through there are on vacation and therefore in a reasonably good mood, or are truckers just picking up a cheap carton. The only pain was asking all of the customs-specific questions and explaining all the rules over and over, and there was even a way to get out of that: let the customer buy whatever he wants, and then watch him walk back to the store in shame a few minutes after customs tells him he's over his limits.

      I work at Burger King, and it's retarded. As soon as I find something more promising I'm going in, working until a rush comes and leaving in the middle of it.
