man I need to sign this sh*t. I'm a part time Geek Squad Computer Technician at Best Buy and I have been scheduled fu*king 38.25 hours. Mind you, I have a full time job with a defense contractor. This sh*t is wrong. On top of that they have all employees scheduled for 12 hours shifts on black Friday (either 11:30pm thanksgiving night - 11:00am or the 11:00am to 11:00pm). I was also recently forced to increase my availability to Friday and Saturday. This retailer has no heart anymore for the employees that it employs. I have also had conversations with customers that are like "i'm so sorry that you guys have to work like that on Black Friday and how crazy it is for a 12am midnight opening.

They signed up for the JOB, they gotta work. Either that go back to school and get a full time job so you dont have to put up w/ that retail sh*t.
when i got hired, 5 years ago, my availability was set. Since those 5 years I have been forced to change it by upper management a total of 5 times to increase the hours that I can be scheduled to work. Now, you can go and take that argument that you cover and apply it to jobs in which it is expected of people to work holidays (airline workers, transportation, healthcare workers, etc.) but I did not agree or obtain a job at best buy with the expectation of a part time job increasing my weekly hours from (15-20) to a fu*ked up 38.25 hours during fu*king Thanksgiving week. It's not my fault that Best buy drove away 15% of their workforce by forcing part time workers to increase their hours or they were immediately terminated. Their grand idea was to have to not employ seasonal workers. smh. Before you go and make generalized a.ssumptions, learn your motha fu*king facts.

i caught the boot after 7 years because of that.. it was smart strategic if you ask me...


change the discount from 5 percent above cost to no more than 50% a month before the mass termination so you make profit off the employees, Force all the weekend warriors and part time workers to increase hours or do a Mass termination. Rehire new employees so one they dont know what great of a discount they had and also you can pay them less. People will go for anything during this recession..

smart moves if you ask me. but the step towards failure when you turn against the employees.

News Flash #1: Everyone doesn't live in the same city or state as their relatives.

News Flash #2: If you're scheduled to work monday, tuesday, wednesday, and friday....and News Flash #1 also holds true, how in the fu*k can you go spend time with your fam. I used to be able to spend a whole day with them, not anymore. I can only go for a couple of hours or not even go at all.

First of all, if you read my post, you would see that this is my PART TIME JOB, which means that I DONT NEED A HUGE AMOUNT OF HOURS. I would love it for them to hire someone else. God, I didn't think that there would be suce an uncaring and stupid person up in here.

Make sure you quit your job before next Thanksgiving, early reports say this was one of the most profitable black Fridays ever.

Retailers gonna be calling it "Black Wednesday Thru Saturday" next year and schedule all these workers for 24 hr shifts.
