Q. There is a new health store in the entrance hallway of the mall at which I am employed. Every single time I or anybody else walks by, there is an employee out front offering a free massage sample. On my way into work, I tell them I have to go to work, but they ask again as I leave. It’s annoying and I don’t think I should have to dread walking through the door for fear of being harassed. Parking at another entrance isn’t an option because of night closings and the outside doors being locked.
What can I tell them, or should I complain to mall management? It’s literally every single time.
A. Introduce yourself and explain to those employees that you work in the mall and really do not need a free massage sample. So since you will see them twice a day, you would prefer if they would not offer you samples. If they persist, discuss this problem with the health samples. If they persist, discuss this problem with the health store manager. If the situation doesn’t improve, report it to the mall management.
