New Employee Mistakes.

We've all had them, and we've all had to deal with them. New Employees who have no idea what their doing. Whats some of the biggest mistakes you've witnessed?

Personally, it was a lady. Mid-40's who sat in the back for 3 days doing modules. She quit on the 4th day.

Why did she Even get hired then? Oh, I know why she quit, she finally realized the bullshit these modules are.

They are bullshit, but considering she got upset when the window minimized and had to come up front to tell me the screen disappeared, adds a little to the suspicion, there’s more of a problem besides the Modules.

Well at least she tried. No computer experience should have showed up in the interview.

This thread will be fun

What pisses me off? New employees who:
  • Are constantly checking in movies.
  • Don't understand that checking the box once every hour or two is much easier.
  • Forget to LOCK movies.
  • Forget to UNlock movies upon checking out.
  • Tell you they can't find Grizzly Man on the wall.
  • Hit "Total" before scanning everything thus making me do credit after credit.
There's more. Gimme time.

I wish mine would do the checkins constantly, come on bran we need them on the walls so we don't have to write rain checks all the time.

See, it sounds good. But there's one problem here. They never RUN them! And when they do, they take a fucking hour doing so! They just stand there checking in movie after movie, not letting the box have more than 5 returns in it at a time! They think, "ohh, I learned something! I'm going to be the check-in-MASTA!!!"....And then stacks upon stacks of movies just build up on the counter. And they're not seperated, mind you, they're just a big ol' mix of NR, NNR, and LOCKED GAMES! That's another thing!
  • New employees who lock the games and put them on the shelf.
That probably varies from store to store, but at mine we have a huge file cabinet where we store the games and put "dead cases" on the shelf. Bah.

Just get the whip out and use it. Tell them, "Don't run movies. NO BREAK"

There is one good thing about new employees, though. They're destined to do bitch-work for a while (sweep, vacuum, scrape gum off the floor, do windows, counters, push the game cabinets back, etc..). They're like little elfs who do whatever you tell them to - no questions asked.

It's the more experienced CSR's who say, "Pffft. Fuck you. I'm going to go smoke a cigarette".

Don't get sassy with brantheman! My SM is also my roommate. If I want you fired, you will be fired
