I work for bestbuy. I have to work 11:30PM-10Am and honestly I'm not bothered by it at all. In my opinion, it is MUCH better than having to come in at 3AM and failing to get any sleep. This way I just have to pull one all nighter, and then at 10AM I get to go home and sleep.

companies like that wont let you request off for a day like that simply because its the biggest day of the year...i know at Toys R Us i worked overnight stock and they even had us scheduled to work crazy hours, i was supposed to work from like 7pm-11am and then come back at like 4 or 5 and work til close...i was like fu*k that and quit

lol you can't request Black Friday off if you work at Best Buy. I used to work there and that is one day you can't get off unless there is so extreme reason (like you're pregnant and going to have the baby that day or something).

I feel bad for my friend that has to work the split shift, I'd rather work 12 straight hours. I'm working 12 hours on Black Friday but its at Amazon and I'm a Safety Manager so its not really the same.

Walmart supercenters don't even close on thanksgiving, so i don't know what employees from these other retail chains are complaining about. Last year when I was working as a sales a.ssociate for Walmart, I had to work 12-9 on thanksgiving day and then get right back up and come in from 7-7 on black friday

Its not a problem with best buy its a problem with our system.

Everyone in the nation should quit at the same time.

Bring down the giants.

Open mom and pop stores...set your own hours..own regulations.

Will it happen? no..hell no.

but thats the only alternative...if you dont like that either then youre just a lazy fu*k.

I've got a split shift my damn self...11:30P-6A, back again at 12P-6P. Hadn't spent Thanksgiving with my fam in 2 years. All sales a.ssociates at my store in Greensboro, NC feels the same way.
My mom worked for NYC transit and she missed two straight Christmas mornings because she worked double shifts on the holidays to get the extra money. Christmas wasn't the same without her but I understood why she did what she did. We had lights on, food in our fridge and gifts under our tree.

Did she enjoy doing that, of course not but she did what she had to do and didn't bi*ch about it. (Btw, I just waited till she got home to open our gifts)

i work in the geek squad as a second job. My primary job is closed all week pretty much so the black friday hours are welcomed. I will admit they are crazy though. But ive worked in a factory for 8 years so ive seen worse.


Geek squad makes more per hour than any other dept by the way

i can dig it...but the deal with me is I live in NC and the fam is in SC, between school and work...I don't go home for spans of 7-8 months. I laugh because every time I go home it's some new sh*t built up.
