I don't have a job at all at the moment, not getting unemployment due to an error that may take months to correct, so I need to do something.

Well I was beyond a doubt the most motivated individual at my store. Every number they kept track of I raised. Credit card applications, from 3 a month to at least one every shift I worked. ESP, conversion, DPT... up, up, up. Lingering around after hours using my personal time to try and train my coworkers to follow the same practises I did (which were just following our training and not being lazy), I did it, and what did I get... I left because they were giving me 10 hours a week, and after a year of service I got "exceeds expectations" on my yearly performance review with no mention of more hours or potential promotions.

Most retail businesses "play by ear" they under-schedule everyone, leaving around 20 of their allotted hours open and call people in when they are needed, which is inconvenient. Plus even if they use every hour they are budgeted, there will always be one associate to every three customers.

If you follow the training to the letter, practise the sale strategies, and can keep yourself motivated, you will get more hours and you will be assigned customer service during prime time which means no physical labor, no stocking, only standing around talking to customers and convincing them to buy shit; but even then, whatever hours you were working before, now with the extra effort you are only looking at like 5 more hours per week, so it begs the question "is the extra effort worth it".

To me it was not much extra effort, and I loved the sales aspect of my job, but everyone else in the store it was just a job. They did the bare minimum, and did not make any effort to learn how to sell stuff. So they stocked shelves, and fixed computers, and only missed out on like 5 hours a week. I might have had a few more hours, but I was working a helluva lot harder to keep up my sales, and I had to regiment and practise every new sale strategy and sales focus that came through that door each passing day.

The only way I could see retail as being worth it is as a full time manager. Even then, though, it's bullshit. Retail managers get paid peanuts compared to similar skill levels in different fields, their hours are not regular which means a constantly changing schedule, and it's usually a salaried position which means more than 40 hours a week with NO overtime compensation.

I think its moreso about the photo revolution. Pictures pretty much mean nothing what they used to, as it was a big deal to have your photo taken and it was a way for you to be remembered in a dignified or refined manner.

Or, ya know, you can be remembered in your underpants standung in front of a mirror. I sometimes picture the future, and i can see loads of kids coming across photos of their parents at parties vomitting into toilets or off their rocker on molly riding in shopping carts. The way kids unload photos these days, they wont be able to convince their kids of shit about being a behaved person. "Well if mom did xyz when she was younger she cant tell ME not to"

Yeah the bonus at my work is based on a survey at the end of the call, but it seems really unfair in certain respects.
If we did everything well in the call and the customer is all happy and stuff but they still "zero bomb" us for no reason, someone listens to the call to see what's up and if they see there was no issue they're like "k, you did nothing wrong but this still goes against your bonus" and the rating goes to 9, rather than 10... And sometimes customers are idiots and will say 10 regardless of the recording saying "rate from 0-9", and if they do this, the system registers it as a 1. And again the company is like "okay, you were supposed to get a higher rating but it's still going to he logged as a 1."

I'm not saying I need every third or fourth planet I find that are like the one in the demo and you're right picking that planet to demonstrate isn't bad at all but at least some with grass or trees would be nice, constantly staring at dead rock planets gets depressing after a while.

Makes sense too since the conditions for sustaining life are incredibly rare just because so many simultaneous requirements need to be met. So of course the vast majority of planets are gonna be barren wastelands or toxic radiated hellscapes. The game does a decent job of depicting that
