There are 6 per year: New Years, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas

I am not 100% on this, but I believe it works like benefits, in that you are eligible after 6 months. You don't necessarily get a full 8 hours of pay though. It is based on the average number of hours you work a week, kind of like the way vacation works.

TMs who get 32 hours or more get paid their average daily hours for Christmas and Thanksgiving, TLs get all 6 posted above

Does Easter count, too?

Nope. It was explained to me that Easter is considered a religious holiday. I guess Christmas has become so secular that they don't count it as religious anymore.

I'm so bummed about this one. :(


this one gets our store every year because theres always one of the TLs or ETLs who thinks its a time and a half holiday therefore we can work sat night into sun morning plus 5 days that week and not get OT

^ Haha. Former specialists should still get the holidays they used to get. It was either 3 or 4 I think.

The good news is that anyone working on the listed holidays gets time and a half pay for hours work that day. So, even if you don't qualify for a full paid day, you still get some extra cash for doing the same job.

If it's a religious holiday, enough to close the store (like Thanksgiving and Christmas), obviously, they should pay time-and-a-half for those people who have to come into work. If they're not going to pay that, they might as well as have the store open on Easter day.

Hey, I told them I would be happy to work on frelling Easter Sunday if I didn't have to use personal days for Passover.
They don't seem to care for that tradeoff though it seems totally fair to me.
