Stores + Employees

Isn’t it interesting that stores seem to attract employees that seem to fit right in?

I was at Dick’s Sporting Goods today with my sister, and every employee we saw was decked out in Adidas and Nike active-wear, stocky and ready to run a marathon at a moment’s notice.

At Trader Joe’s, the store is fully of young and hip-looking folks, who I’d like to be friends with. The same type of people that often crowd the aisles buying food of the shelves instead of restocking them.

And of course, GameStop is chock full of the goons and gals that play video games deep into the evening – gaming levels and quests are part of the interview process.

We migrate to where we feel comfortable, even for such menial things as a part time job after class. We go where feel a belonging.
