Hi all,

I guess there are some of bros here are working or have worked in IT Support job in retail industry where the company has alot outlets and you support Pos systems and users.

Wondering how is it like working in IT in retail company? Is it stressful and everyday need to support after office hrs no life on weekends and public holidays?

pain in the ass when, vendor late
permission to do something must be elevated until heaven can confirm,
doing your job even pass your working hours to support pos like the bos always said "how to do looo tomorrow they need to use this!".
ur manager also cut your payment if late supporting the site, lets says 2 site server down at the same time. the rest is history.

then how bout fking petrol?
