No matter what industry you work in, it has its secrets. Supermarkets know how to make it so consumers might not notice a price increase. Retail stores know how to get people to buy more than they originally intended. Car rental companies have small print up the ying yang that makes you not even realize all the add-ons they’ve snuck in. And, of course, never drink from a hotel glass if it smells lemony fresh.
Speaking of hotels, we’ve posted a few articles with industry secrets from housekeeping and other hotel staff:
