Mantique...wtf?

are they trained to flirt with you there or something? was looking at some jeans and this chick comes by and starts talking me up for a good 10 min, asking me all this personal stuff etc. etc.

by the point that my friends want to leave, she kinda mentions whether id like to try some jeans on, but were half walking to the door

anyways, main point - girl seems really into me, underlying implication that i should buy something? i now feel like buying jeans

shiiit, anyone else?

I think they're trained that way, guys have come up to me and asked "what do you think of this weather?"

they're doing their job - you're getting attention without having to pay for it unless you want to tip by buying something. Stop complaining.

same! well, not me.
My 20 year old cousin and I walked into Mantique guildford. The rape begun when he asked to try on a pair of jeans.
Me, being an LB, I watched my cousin fall victim into becoming the prey.

if its a retail store and you're being paid a lot of attention, chances are you're just another walking commission. think nothing of it.

DUDE I fuckin boycotted mantique in Metro already, the dude is such a nut hugger... every single fucking time i went in there he says, "hey guys, what are you guys up to today? what did you buy from *whatever bag you're holding, if any"?" got a to a point where I just pretended that I was deaf and headed straight to the door.

Mantique is ALWAYS hiring too. Shows how much their employees like working there.

i can understand mantique is only trying to get their employees to get more personable with their customers, but it's honestly WAY too much. when i go in there, i feel as if i am being interviewed with questions and sometimes a little too personal. "what you doing today? Oh work? where do you work? oh so what you shopping for? oh your brother? how old is your brother? how does he look like? etc etc etc"

and also, they just don't seem to get it when i say "no thanks, just browsing" when they ask if i need help. it just keeps coming and coming.

thats exactly what happened to me, asked what i was up to, where i work, if i go to school, etc. didn't seem to get the message when i said i was just looking around either

Not to mention their shady business practices. A friend of mine had "an interview" with them back in high school which turned out being to her working for free for four hours. They didn't hire her after.

Another friend had one of these "interviews" but Mantique told her she'd be working for free for four hours. She told them fuck it, she doesn't work for free.
