In regards to lamestop, they suck balls, but you can't blame the peons for doing what the weiners in charge tell them to. Radio shack did the same thing to me as an employee. Greet customer, push cell phone, ask what they came in for, suggest elaborate answer usually leading to cell phone, select items that answer their need and recommend checking their eligibility for a cell phone plan, offer service plans for all items and close your eyes when they spit at you for literally harassing them to no end. Pretty standard fair for any retail sales job honestly, and it fucking sucks. Pretty sure it's less about appeasing the customer and more about literally destroying your confidence as a person and making you an obedient schlub.
