I'd do that, or close to it if they let us, but my store's never allowed me over 62 hours, and very rarely that much. That said I may very well work more than 48 this week, but I was scheduled to work 48.Yeah I've been working 72 hours a week lol. We are very understaffed though.
Yep, even when I still worked for Spot I often shopped online after the Wednesday ad/Black Friday set, before the Grey Thursday madness, or before/after my Black Friday shift. I do a lot of shopping online but will go the store for those few instore only offers.BF is now online on thanksgiving Day.
I think it used to be midnight the last two weeks before Christmas.Our minors work till 9:45. We go to Midnight closings starting December 4th. Pretty sure it's always been the second week of December, but the second week starts earlier this year than some years due to the first of the month being Thursday.
Somehow I was spared the midnight closes for the past two, maybe even three years. This year nope, they got me - midnights only for the next two weeks, and most likely until Christmas.Last year, we started the midnight closes during the first week of December. I told my ETL that I would do 1-2, but I'm scheduled to close every night. FML.
Officially my availability is also only until 11. I'm letting it slide for now to get the hours.They got me too. I actually changed my availability last spring so I couldn't work past 11. I agreed to close 1 night a week. I think my ETL heard that as I could have 1 day shift a week. I'd complain, but we are so short.
Same with my store. I have accepted the uber-late shift time, it's very quiet after our normal 10:00 pm close. I don't understand why Corporate, which is so incredibly cheap-minded at other times, has made this decision. All I can say is I'm making bank on it.So my store is now open until Midnight starting next week.
I thought in the past that they only did that the week before Christmas.
Of course our store doesn't realize half of our night crew are minors and can't work past 9:30.
