Not my current job but I used to work for some crazy people.
you had to stand in a specific area while eating so they could see you on the camera
don’t talk to customers longer than 3 minutes unless you’re making a big sale, even then, keep it short
answer the phone within 2 rings, keep the conversation to less than 30 seconds
you can’t talk to your co workers outside of work
you can’t talk to your co workers while at work, even if there was not a single customer in the store
I’m sure there’s more I just can’t think of right now.
Old job of mine in a warehouse. Our stations were pretty far apart, so when we’d listen to music we’d all usually have our own stuff playing. Not a problem since you could barely hear the neighbors music. Well, the CEO didn’t like hearing multiple songs when walking through the warehouse. He made a rule that we all either had to listen to the same music, or none at all.
I once needed a pen. Figured this was a reasonable ask. Went to the supply closet on my floor, which was locked. Asked the floor’s admin, she told me to go to the main supply room in the basement. Went to the basement and explained my situation of needing a pen. They told me all requests for supplies must be approved by my department head. Problem is, being new, I’d never met my department head. She also worked in San Francisco (I worked in Milwaukee), so I needed to send an email both introducing myself, and asking her if I had permission to get a pen from the supply closet.
