So, I was job searching last night, like I do every night, and I found a company looking for a "Merchandise Support Associate"

Five "attaboys" or "attagirls" to the first person who tells me what I figured out was the "real" name of that position.

Help Desk Phone-boy
Quality Control
Shelf Stocker.

President_Shinzon was close, but I'm gonna give credit to Sural_Argonus for getting the title correct.

Sounds like a fancy way of saying "Receptionist" to me.

Well, the job description was something along the lines of: Receive merchandise from transport vehicles and distribute merchandise to areas of the floor in most need. (aka "Unload the truck and stock the shelves")

I once got a job that was a "General Helper in Accommodation Services". Because I had applied for an IT position, I assumed it was a general computer position, possibly data entry.

Imagine my surprise when I discovered my new summer job was as a janitor.
