    Seriously when I worked at Fry's at 2 different stores, I must have lucked out or something. Because I went to the Oxnard store a couple of days ago to get memory for my friend who lives up there and the cashier who rung us up was the dumbest/slowest/bitchest cashier ever. She had to swipe the card literally 20 times before she told us that she had to type in the card number. She never tried to use a bag over the card cause sometimes that does work. Then the part that pissed me off the most what when I wanted to get some Sour Patch candy. Again she scanned the damn thing like 20 times before she told me she needs a plu #. ITS CANDY. You don't plu candy unless its from the Cafe. So the retard next her tried and told me the same thing so I told her just type the upc in, it works the same way. Damn idiot apparently can't type 12 numbers in a row and get it right. So I got mad and just left.  
     
    Out of my 3+ years in customer service at Fry's I have never experienced such retards. I even worked for 2 different stores and never met someone so dumb. Seriously if I was a secret shopper they would have failed big time.  
     
    Did the cashier greet you? NO  
     
    Was the cashier personalble and smile? THATS A BIG FAT HELL NO. SHE WAS A BITCH AND DID NOT SMILE ONCE.  
     
    Did the cashier make eye contact? NOPE  
     
    Did the cashier ask if you found everything ok? NO  
     
    Did the cashier let you know where there were going if they needed to leave the register? NOPE  
     
    Did the cashier ask if you would like this on your Fry's card? SURPRISINGLY YES  
     
    Did they Thank you for choosing Fry's and to show your reciept at the door? YEAH BUT IT SOUNDED MORE LIKE A GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE WITH THE ATTITUDE SHE HAD.  
     
    All and all this girl was a dumb bitch and her friend what just dumb at least she smiled. Big F on the secret shop.

    Purely making this up for fun: The WORST secret shopper results ever =p  
     
    Did the cashier greet you? YES, she said "Hey bitch, how you doin'?"  
     
    Was the cashier personable and smile? YES, her friend at the next register told her a joke about this jew, a black guy, and a chinese dude walking into a bar... well you know the rest. She laughed and smiled, very personable.  
     
    Did the cashier make eye contact? YES, she gave the guy walking towards the exit door excellent eye contact, examining everything about him to make sure he wasn't stealing or hiding anything in his pants while she was scanning the products.  
     
    Did the cashier ask if you found everything okay? She was very considerate, checking if I found all the porn okay since there was none in my cart.  
     
    Did the cashier let you know where there were going if they needed to leave the register? YES, she told me she had to go take a piss, so that I would know where she was at.  
     
    Did the cashier ask if you would like this on your Fry's card? YES, she asked me very nicely and told of all the discounts and free products Fry's cards offers.  
     
    Did they Thank you for choosing Fry's and tell you to show your reciept at the door? She said "Thanks for applying for Fry's card, please show the receipt to the door nazis, have a great day." I knew what she meant though. Such a nice girl.

    Maybe she's new to having a cashier position, and didn't know the plastic bag/tape trick.  
     
    I didn't know about that UPC one, does it really work? Never thought of testing it out, I'll be sure to try that out and see if it works on Wednesday :)  
     
    They do sound clumsy, did their name tag say "-in training" at the end of it lol?

    I got a zero on the secret shopper twice. Mainly because I was an asshole and I knew who the secret shopper was. There is a girl in our department who got the secret shopper and got 100% but in the review of her he wrote down that she talked so much that he wanted her to shut the fuck up.

    Is there any ways to tell your being secret shopped? You know those people pay attention to certain details that might give them away.

    The irony in that was that she was talking to her friend say that she passed her test and that she was waiting for her certification to go through in the system. And plus to have that attitude, I'm pretty sure she has been working there long enough to know something. But it was really annoying when she kept swiping the card over and over to make it work. You would think after like 3 tries that the card needs to be typed in.  
     
    But yeah there are little "tricks of the trade" for the register. Plastic over the strip of a card will sometimes work. At the job I'm at now we you a piece of paper, but I don't know if that will work at fry's. Typing the upc works to, you just have to type the WHOLE number. I think thats where she messed up. She probably only typed in the numbers under the barcode, but you have to include the little number of to each side of the barcode. Most upc's are 12 digits long.

    There is a way to tell if you're being secret-shopped, they pay attention to details customers normally don't care about. My customer made a huge deal that I was using the light for the register next to me. I told him that mine was broken and he still seemed to think it was inappropriate. The only thing I actually got marked down for though was that I was gone too long getting his pick-up order because it hadn't been brought to the front so I had to go hunting for that particular piece of merchandise. Somehow this was my fault and I got written up for "failing". Go figure.  
     
    Oh and I boycott the self-check out. Never using one, ever!
