It's not about "being happy to have a job". It's the morality of this nation that's going to sh*t. If this is done because of consumer demand then I don't buy it. Every retail employee is a consumer and there are over 300,000 retail employees and I guarantee you that none of them are asking for retailers to open early. So stop the madness. Retailers should market smarter throughout the year instead of waiting for Black Friday weekend to get into black. Stop skimping all year at the expense of common decency. Black Friday money isn't all what it's cracked up to be because if you're commissioned, your quota is higher than ever anyway. Plus, you'll get the same deal on December 7th as you would on black friday. The same dumbass people standing in line are the same people who complain about gas prices every day.

The same people who say it's ok to open early are the same people who complain about executive bonuses.

you'll get wrote up.



best buy dont give a phuk bout they employees if they did your discount wouldnt have went from 5% above cost to not more than 50% of an item.

USB cables are sold for 36 dollars. the employee use to get it for 5% above cost which was 96 cents. now they make you pay... $18. they know whats up... Biggest pimp company out there and they turned from hustling the customer to now hustling the employee.


an on top of that people value family. in order to be up at midnight to work a solid 12 you have to be sleep mid day on thanksgiving.

OT will not be given because they will schedule slim the previous days due to nobody shopping waiting on black friday. and your set schedule could very well possibly go over because the company comes first.... (I've worked 15 to 16hrs on black friday before because i wasnt allowed to leave due to heavy traffic)

I know right?

How dare they satisfy the needs/wants of the market! They're totally doing this for no reason and it has NOTHING to do with what consumers want.

I think a much better solution is for them to open at regular hours and lose a bunch of money. That usually works out well in the end for a company that is in financial trouble. But hey, look at the bright side, if they end up having to cut wages/employees, at least they got enough time with their families.
this.

yall are some dumb fu*ks. no one is mad about the amout of hours we have to work its the timing. and to the person that said sh*t about undergrad? duh n*gga of course. i know that already. ive done that before...

i guarantee there will be no extra money made in those 5 hours. i guess according to yall we should have to work 48 hrs straight on thursday and blk friday. we dont get holiday pay, and like homeboy said, the discount? that sh*t is gooooooooooone. because yall customers are not spending as much money with us.

and like son said we bring VALUE to our positions. i am the lead in my dept and if i wasn't there they'd be trying to bring that money in. the last time i tried to leave i got a $2 raise. fu*k outta here. i think everyone needs to work on black friday at 12am just so yall can see how it feels.

fu*k yall.

wow...first off how you haven't been called on this shows me what the majority of dudes in this thread are about...second where the F*CK did you ever hear me say anything about no one working black friday?All i said was companies wanna get greedier and greedier every year at the expense of its employees.Pushing the time from the traditional 5 am to the day before is only the beginning. so miss me with the E-rants and your closet racist sh*t ...No one trying to hear that sh*t
Where the fu*k did you see me say that you said that. You're talking about companies getting more greedy, when the very fu*kin' holiday you are celebrating is about FEASTING, and buying a whole bunch of sh*t the next day. American holidays are designated consumer days for the indebted proletariats to be greedy. Best Buy is only responding to the demand of the populace.

The company's whole mission is to enrich shareholders & executives, not to play babysitter for an employee (slave) you bi*ch a.ss nicca. I hope this is only the beginning, we need to lax the labor laws and bring in their adolescent children to work the night shifts and remove minimum wage laws.

Most of these companies will cut hours all week prepping for Black Friday. You'll work 12hrs and end up w/ 36 hrs for the week. Not too many of these companies are giving overtime hours anymore. Making stores do more w/ less. It is what it is though.

All those employees should be fired. They cant work a few extra hours for 1 god damn day out the year? I know plenty of people that work on holidays such as myself and these ungrateful bastards wanna start a petition cuz their store wants to open a few hours early for 1 fu*king day.

Most of you that are saying to stop complaining and enjoy all the extra $$$ from working these "extra" hours have no idea what you are talking about for most retailers. These people aren't making a dime in "extra" hours. They are still getting the same amount of paid time that they would normally, except that they are getting squeezed into one day instead of being spread out. I would guess most with this opinion will be sitting at home for 4+ days off for the holiday and can't imagine what it is like to be in that situation.

By the way, if every retailer would rally against opening up on Thanksgiving and open at the same time there wouldn't be any money being lost. It's the same dollar you would've made at midnight that you would be grabbing at 8am. So that argument is totally baseless. It's just a domino effect once one store opens early they all open early to let all the sheeple in so they can all feel better saving ten dollars on a toaster that they stood in line for eight hours to get.

Didn't read the whole thread but looked around it a bit.

I keep seeing people saying "be thankful you have a job, there's millions of people who would k!ll for a job." blah blah blah. Tell these people to go flip burgers at McDonalds or BK if they are so desperate. I know people don't want to take a job they are overqualified for, but jobs are out there if you look hard enough. There's no way in hell that dudes can be unemployed for 100 weeks and not find a single job if they're really searching.

As far as working Black Friday goes, it does kind of suck because dudes don't get holiday pay (even though a lot of people in here seem to think they do), but it's one over-night shift. Deal with it.

I agree, there are plenty of jobs out there, might not be the job you want, but there are jobs.
