Great pre-load image. I have seen too many of these kind of training videos on my "career path." The TGIFriday's one really stands out in my memory.

If you can add a "sexism" tag, I think it would be apt. Or "mild psychotic episode". Either one.
Oh I worked for one place that had a great sexual harassment training video that gave various examples and then asked the audience to judge whether it was harassment or not. One of the examples was about "Touchy Tootie" (no shit) who was an older lady who liked to squeeze people's shoulders and get inside their personal space. They kept on saying "Touchy Tootie" and we all couldn't help but laugh

Blockbuster university, right next to the bovine university.

I had an interview at Bbuster in my sophomore year of college. It was conducted by a pale woman who picked the scabs off her face throughout the entire interview. I was thoroughly disgusted, but I did get the job. Took a library job instead.

I would find it hard to not quit by 2 minutes into this video.

This is a dupe, but who fucking cares, it's wonderfully awful and this one is way better quality than the one that was posted here earlier.
I hate this shit that goes on in retail where it's just this constant, illogical greed. "Maybe they bought your shit, but they need to BUY MORE.. MAKE THEM BUY MORE!!! AND MORE!!!!"
"Sorry. You pay me minimum wage to give a minimum shit."

I like her hair!
THA SUGAH RAIN
Yeah, the babysitter blonde's hair was ok. I was referring to that tragedy living on top of the girl who demonstrated a tenuous grasp of the "think.....then act" procedure.

Five stars for bringing back awful memories of working retail. They choose a caricature named "Mr. Opportunist" as the paragon of customer service, and then they wonder why they go bankrupt as soon as their customers have another alternative.
Good customer service in modern retail only happens when the employees ignore the advice their corporate bosses are constantly trying to brainwash the with.
Good-bye Blockbuster! Good-bye Best Buy in 2013! Rot in Hell!
And goodbye GameStop when the next console gen rolls around.
Nearly every Blockbuster in this city has already went out of business. There are now more Redbox machines than movie rental shops. Serves them right.
When we're all old, leaving the house to walk around a store and buy shit will be a primitive concept everyone laughs at.

No, Ms. dairyqueenlatifah, we don't have DVD's. (sighs loudly)
Look, Ms. dairyqueenlatifah, just get a mind cube installed in your shunt. No, your shunt. Like me, see the interface built into my brain? It allows you instant access to the Everysphere. No, we do not have Britney Spears videos. Was she an action star? We do have a few older movies. We have The Godfather and something called UHF.
No, we don't have Everysphere for sale. No (sighs loudly) no I can't give your granddaughter an Everysphere. We don't sell them here. You have to go to Neurohut. My Little Pony on the Everysphere? Let me look that up, I don't know what that - oh my Gods. What? No, I am a follower of Ares, my whole family is except for my evangelistic Wiccan sister. She's weird. She doesn't even like the Everysphere.
No, I can't give you a catalog. What, like paper? No, they haven't had those in...ever. Didn't they stop making those in the 50s? I'm not that great with history. I'm sorry. No, I'm sorry. Please don't speak to my manager. (sighs loudly)
Will a manager please digitize to the front lobby? Hi, yes, this is Teresa. Yes, she is beaming in just for you. Ma'am, please stop screaming, she's an AI but they have emotional empathy-wave model tritescreens. Teresa, can I go on my coffee patch break?
There are two Blockbusters still in my city, AND a Family Video. You'd think online streaming would be killing those businesses here - at one point (I don't know if it's true anymore) this town used to have a lot of college and post-college gamers and stoners sharing houses.

You want to talk about opportunities? Carry NC-17 tapes, you fucking shitheels.
Why does every retail training video place emphasis on bugging the shit out of your customers?
Or maybe actually carrying a wide variety of movies instead of getting rid of shit that your weird, pro-Christian focus groups had issues with.
Or maybe films with black people in them.
Or maybe not illegally handing out lists of which customers rented what movies when weird Christian crusades try banning movies in their state.
Because corporate execs seem to think that the average person doesn't know they want or need a bunch of shit they don't actually want or need unless someone tells them they should have it. GameStop is particularly bad about this.
Of course then you have places like Best Buy and Walmart, where if you need help finding anything in the store, you're shit outta luck because "Fuck if I know the answer to your question, I just work here."

1990 Blockbuster store looks exactly like the week-prior-to-bankruptcy Blockbuster store.

A person who self-identifies as "career opportunist" is a person who belongs in prison. And knowing a lot about that teenage girl's personal life doesn't help matters any.
