About this product:

With 73% of online retailers seeing customer reviews as a key priority in 2009, according to a recent Forrester report, it’s no wonder the cultivation of online reviews is becoming an art form.

Sexual Harassment

About this product:

I Can Dream Can’t I?

About this product:

Yesterday, when I unlocked the door to my store, there was a line of people waiting. Fortunately, my two counter people were on time and waiting behind the counter. One was at a point-of-sale terminal, and the other was at the Internet order pick-up desk. Six customers came through the door, and four cued up for Internet pick-up. Nathan, my lead counterman, immediately approached the attractive female and asked if he could help (typical) while I waited on the male customer.
