Need a break?

Posted on Wed, Jul 9, 2014 at 12:43 PM

I work retail in a very slow mall and I normally work weekdays by myself until 5 or 6 p.m. I'm very lucky if someone comes in to give me a break. I'm expected to eat my lunch while helping customers if they come in, which is fine except I am not allowed to sit down at all! I understand not being able to sit down while working, but when eating my lunch (which is supposed to be my break) I would love to sit down. Also bathroom breaks are a no-no. Even though I'm there all day, my manager expects me to be able to hold it and gets pissed if I close the store to go. I need a new job! —Break a need?
