    I have seen 1 sister get a job in a similar role and she was almost promoted to team leader until she left, so i think its possible if you are a skilled person.
    Did you manage to get it back? 

    Have you looked into PeoplePerHour? Online jobs? 

    Or you can tutor kids at home, in English/Maths or even Qur'an/Islamic studies? 

    What about babysitting?

    Yes, good point. I was almost forced to work in retail some time ago as well. Not saying those who work in retail aren't religiously committed.

    But it should never be done willingly.
    Lolll son.

    He is not a Muslim man. She is not a Muslim woman. He is a brother, and she is a sister. 

    Lol...

    Retail is soul sucking. 

    I can scarcely imagine a niqabi working in one of those places.

    Agreed, son. Agreed.

    I don't see how any religiously committed Muslim can work in most retail places. Almost every aspect of it goes against Islam (the items being sold, the music being played, the customers you have to deal and interact with, etc.)

    I'm guessing by veil you mean niqab.

    I think every person, whether living in the West or East, should do their best to follow the Sunnah (whether the obligatory Sunnah or recommended). This is good.

    But you also have to live the lifestyle of it.

    Some may say it is impractical to wear the niqab in the West. I say this is right, but:

    1. A lot of us aren't forced to live here and we can make plans to eventually move, if we really wanted.

    2. If a sister chooses to wear niqab, she is covering herself entirely with articles of clothing. But the best veil is the home.

    So if there is no necessity to go out and work, I don't see how it can be allowed. Everyone has a need for money, but we are talking necessity here.

    Regardless of all this, retail is probably one of the worst jobs a Muslim male can work in - let alone a female. The best ones are those you don't need to interact with the public or minimal interaction such as call center, data entry, etc.
    Yes retail would be a big fitnah
