    I'm currently working at a best buy

    distribution center but it's seasonal and it's through an agency, meaning best buy doesn't pay us the agency does. The job itself is easy, but the agency is so unorganized. They're late on paychecks and we fill out time sheets in a binder and after work everyone's in a rush to...

    I am so upset. I had an awful day today.

    We were really busy at work and I've only been there for a month and a half so I'm still learning what to do and how to do it. And today we were really busy and trying to get shipment out and I made a small mistake. I always have to ask where certain things are and how to do...

    Have you ever had someone file a complaint
