It depended frankly on the employees and boss. A few I was awk with, esp some older ones, others very comfortable with, my true personality showed. I was fortunate with the job tho, I was even promoted.
IN SHORT, AND TO SUMMARIZE - So my work experience tho ups and downs but was very positive overall, it definitely helped me fight SA better than anything. I was a big flirt too, being a toy store, lots of female employees =) In fact, that was part of the reason I got fired lol, I was a receiver/buyer, but worked the floor a lot too, BUT was still up in front a bit more often than I should hav been
So, the key is comfort level at the job, with your bosses, and workers. And I had a higher up position too, and by this time I knew the job very well, so it didnt stress me out. All of these ingredients is not always possible to add up to positive things, I realize I was lucky.
