Why is working at big box retail so bad?

The employees are disgruntled, and carry attitude problems. They tend to throw stuff at each other and constantly burst out in skirmishes. They tend to cuss at other employees. They make the customers angry and cry and I have two things to handle angry rude upset customers and disgruntled employees.

The employees would randomly walk up to other employees and try to start random fights with them. I had one employee call me gay and started housing insults at me and moved his hand back and forth across his chest mocking the way I talk. I had one employee walked up to me and started using fighting words to me for no particular reason.

When reported the incident to the hr all of the employees were retailiating and accusing me of ‘running my mouth’ my hr issues increased.

I had one employee randomly run me back into a corner and was trying to get me to say something to him so he could beat me up, went back to hr and it just caused more retaliation.

Seems like when one employee tries to do something to you and you report it, all of them starts standing in.

Managers yell at and talk abusively at particular employees and flirt with and be nice towards other ones.

My lunch food get stolen and things I have gets broken, apparently by those coworkers.
