Am I suited for a career in retail?


Congratulations, Old Wolf!



Your Retail Suitability Quotient is 55%. You are marginally well suited to work in the retail industry.

You see unreasonable customers as par for the course, but your lack of tolerance for the abuse they regularly dish out means you should expect to be angry on a fairly regular basis. You certainly don't let the customers push you around, but I should warn you that gunplay is generally frowned upon in the industry. You may often find yourself frustrated when your retail overlords disregard your safety or general well-being, but that's the price you pay for having a sense of self worth.



I estimate your threshold for retail work to be 11 years. You may work in retail longer, but your sanity (and possibly the safety of those around you) will begin to decrease after this benchmark.


Welp, looks like that's not my career of choice!

Take the Retail Personality Test. And then read "Retail" by Norm Feuti. Like Dilbert for the Retail world, it's both funny and painful and full of pathos and bathos all at the same time.

The heck? I took the test and didn't get a result.

Oh, wow - then you're definitely not cut out for a career in retail. But I knew that anyway - a person with your mind would be wasted pointing people to blue-light specials...

I did have two summer jobs in retail, at MotoPhoto and CVS, before my BA. Sometimes I got complaints, but I was never threatened with dismissal.

retail detail
There was a little dog with a waggy bushy tail in a shop. It got so well known that when it eventually passed on they kept its tail in a little cabinet in memory of the little feller. This proved to be a problem because when the dog faced St Peter he said "You can't come in! You're incomplete! Dogs must have a waggy tail!" So the little dog took to haunting the shop...
Customers started to notice phantom "wuffy" noises and mystery cold nose-to-the-lower-legs so the shopkeeper got in a medium to investigate.
Thus it was that the little dog got a chance to ask them to bury the tail so that complete, he could pass on.
Unfortunately, it simply could not be, though.....
The shop wasn't licenced to re-tail spirits..........
