I do have to agree with bfaddict. When you work retail, you know what you are getting into. I used to work retail and I remember what it was like. Honestly though, I actually didn't mind working Tday, it was actually kind of fun, they'd try to only work us 4-6 hours so we could spend time with our families. I think the store closed at 5-6pm.
Of course I don't know what it's like now. I've actually considered many times getting another part time job in retail, but then I think... will it screw up my BF plans? LOL!!! terrible I know. The job should be more important that a shopping day, right? ....... right?

Good thing is those people are getting paychecks, some getting holiday pay. I'd love to have a regular paycheck again.

It was fun! I worked in an antique mall so not your normal retail establishment but it was a day that was pretty slow.... we'd all bring in food to have our own thanksgiving potluck... snack all day.... put up the xmas tree in the store.... it was great!

we never did any black friday sales and i never did work the friday after thanksgiving (cause i was either shopping or sleeping) but i did hear the store would get kinda crazy on that day lol

me too. we also get the Wednesday before thanksgiving as a paid holiday, so if there is something I really want, it gives me extra time to be in line.
I'm addicted!

LOL! When I worked overnight at a grocery store, it was nice because we didn't have to work Tday night, so I could get up and hit the stores early, then come home and rest, okay well as much as my kids would let me! I actually enjoyed that job, but I don't miss the part where I barely got any sleep!

Maybe Walmart will utilize the in-store Subways to give out turkey subs to the people in line this year. ;)
