I work nights stocking a grocery store.

I now know why the warehouse sends our trucks so late

As a man who works in a warehouse 'til midnight to make sure all the deliveries are out on time, I can assure you this is not why the trucks get there so late. It's just because we either don't have enough help because people don't fking show up or we didn't have enough workers in the first place.
Currently we have a good number of workers and tonight we managed to get all of our orders out by about 10:30pm. Of course that's extremely unusual but it does happen.
Also, YOU GROCERY BOYS WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND THE PAIN OF THE PRODUCE WORKERS!
I worked mornings in produce for a few months, starting at 6:30am prepping everything for opening time of 8am, alone in produce until 7:30am at which point a second guy comes in as we both frantically try to make everything look pretty.
Lemme tell ya, it would be fine... If it wasn't god damn fresh produce and we didn't have to be picky little ***** to compete with the picky ******* customers that won't buy bananas that are too green, or too yellow or aren't in bunches because the other picky customers took them off because they didn't want such a large bunch or the god damn bastards that ask you for radishes when you KNOW they're talking about rutabagas. NOBODY KNOWS WHAT A ******* RUTABAGA IS EXCEPT US APPARENTLY.
ALSO! LADY! I DO NOT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE IN TASTE BETWEEN THE APPLES, I AM NOT A CHEF, I JUST STOCK THIS **** AND FREEZE MY ASS OFF IN THE COOLER GETTING YOU YOUR PERFECT ******* FRESH FRUITS!
AND WHILE WE'RE ON THE SUBJECT OF RADISHES. Just because the leaves on the radishes are getting a littly wilted, doesn't mean the radish itself is bad IT STILL TASTES FINE.

You have no... ******* clue. If I was capable of making content, this is what it would be about.
The **** that is needed from the produce department is silly. Basically from the start everyone teaches you about keeping everything safe and clean and high quality so that people will want to buy it but once you start the shift everything goes to **** as everyone just tries to keep up with the demand and you can barely keep up with how fast the customers buy **** as you restock.
The thing is that in produce, you're not just going to the back, grabbing a box and then emptying its contents onto the shelves... No, in produce we actually have to trim **** , wash it, wrap it and sometimes even have to go clean up the floors/bathrooms because a "little" accident happened and we had no janitors during the day. They're part of the night crew and clean up everything after the store is closed.
Produce is produce, this is where all the delicate foods are all stacked up just WAITING to be bumped and trampled on. It also happens to be the closest department to our bathroom -__-
Just... A typical day is "Make everything pretty. K you're not going fast enough forget about the pretty. K YOU'RE STILL NOT GOING FAST ENOUGH FORGET ABOUT SAFETY! OMG DUDE GET YOUR ******* ACT TOGETHER I TOLD YOU TO STOP WORRYING ABOUT THINGS, I NEED CELERY OUT THERE** NOW!**"
Then you get the celery out there and it looks like **** and no one buys it but at least it's there so the boss is happy, until he sees the sales numbers at the end of the week and sees we're over budget so they cut hours so we have to work even FASTER.
Honestly I'm surprised that damn store is still running... It felt to me like a vicious circle of failure and money loss.

Yeah that's not the job for me. I would just be going out and throwing the damn food on the shelves and then hustling back and repeating the process

Hue.
My tolerance is infinite.
However just because I tolerate it enough to function, doesn't mean I'm not mad lol
Of course it really depends on how much help you have. As I said, we had some budgeting problems and if we had just been able to have 2 guys going at all times it would've been fine...
I know this because on days when the inspectors 'n' **** come, we have ALL the help in the world and I have nothing to do a lot of the time. ******* bastards...

I don't get it. Why?
User avatar #27 to #13 - cormy (06/21/2014) [-]
Because the warehouse guys are busy ******* around so the **** doesn't get out 'til midnight. Like in the content.
