People who work at retail stores always hope their fellow human beings a.k.a. customers act well. As we know, not all humans are same; there are many of them who behave badly, oddly or strangely with retail employees. Yes, retail employees are those people you usually see at supermarkets, grocery stores, restaurants, and other stores etc you take your order, help you and service you. Here are fifteen things every retail employee secretly wants you to know.
1.No Point Bargaining With Us

Bargaining isn't cheap! The whole world bargains in one or the other way. Customers, however, need to remember that there is no point bargaining with retail employees. Almost all products in stores come with a fixed price printed on them. Pricing is controlled by owners of stores/business establishments.

Some people are always rude enough to mess with retail employees when there's something wrong. If you think you have received a bad product or bad customer service, complain to the higher authorities or head office. You can't hold retail employees responsible for broken and damaged products.

3.Please Read Refund Policy Clearly Before Initiating a Refund Request

Sometimes people return products just because they don't like them. There is a thing called 'return policy' and every customer needs to be aware of it. When retail employees explain them about return policies, people go mad and start yelling at them. You can inquire stores about their refund policies at the time of buying something.

Isn't this the most popular sentence ever used by customers throughout the world? People working in retail daily listen to people saying stuff like  'I'm not going to come to this store again', 'this is the last time we buy something here' etc. While retail employees may never say a word back, but they truly wish you stick to your word and never visit the store again!

All stores employ people just to help customers in finding what they want.

People who are work at big stores can relate. Unfortunately, many people do this thing. If you take out something from a particular place in a store, and if you don't want it later for various reasons; place the item back in its original place or hand it over to employees working there.

Retail employees don't completely know about the products that are offered in their store.
