Set in electrical goods store ‘Electroworld’, Rostered On captures
humorous moments amongst the daily grind that all too many retail
workers have to experience: Ball breaking customers, incompetent
managers, the threat of ‘head office’, alpha male salesmen, gossiping
staff and more.
Rostered On looks at the problems and issues that retail workers face at work every day.
From sales targets to rude customers and difficult managers. With a range of hilarious yet all too real characters - The alpha male sexist, the bitchy counter staff, the brown nosing second in charge, and the guy that just wants to keep a roof over his family’s head.
The staff of Electroworld do their best to interact without killing each other, and put up with seemingly endless customer complaints. Just when you think you have it figured out, Rostered On flips and shows the human side to these all too familiar characters, and reveals its incredibly big
heart, by exploring themes of family, friendship, ambition and sacrifice.
In Season 2, the Electroworld team is back, bigger, badder and more politically incorrect than ever. On returning to Electroworld we see that some things are the same. Customers are still horrible, the work is still boring and Darren is still angry. However, some things have changed. A couple of new faces have appeared.
Dan, a thirty something stay at home Dad has joined the team, taking on his first full time job ever. Our beloved hero Vish is away trying to right a previous wrong, making way for our new security guard Calvin. Alongside the chaos of customer returns, staff hierarchy and even being held up at gunpoint, season 2 sees us stepping outside Electroworld into a café around the corner. The café is run by some familiar faces from Season 1, and makes way for a whole new type of painful customers.
