You have a rather prickly attitude, when you work in retail you have to understand how people are and how they will treat you, if you can't deal with it then get a job where you have little to no customer contact, e.g., warehouse work or security guard. You sound whiny and put upon and that will get you nowhere in retail. just the way ti is, you have to be able to be a bit subservient and you obviously have a problem with that.

Oh, my finely feathered little friend how I'd just LOVE to have a chat with your divisional manager. Would you give me his name and email or phone number, and I will have your little problem solved very quickly. Just like I did with a major grocery chain recently.Off duty, kicking back employees should NOT be on the floor in uniform (colored shirt, logo on jacket, whatever). They should be out of sight of the customers. Nothing is more infuriating than a group of employees chatting, whatever, when one needs help, but they apparently are on break. They do not have a sign saying break, but just appear as goof-offs.I think your DM would see it my way also, and your reclining days in the big office chairs would be over. Get off the floor and go to the break room when you aren't qualified to help customers in the area you are "kicking back".

I worked in retail when I was in college, and I realized very quickly that "John Q. Public" is a "collection of @$$holes"People are at their worst behavior when they are out amongst others. The worst people congregate in WalMart, I think they must be an annex to a mental hospital. Home Depot, Staples and Target are 3 other good ones, and the intelligence level of some of their employees isn't that great either, they have to scrape the bottom of the barrel for customers and employees.
