  • My first year working at a real job in 23 years, and I'm working retail. I have to be at work at 6am for black Friday, I'm okay with that though, I'll be off at 2:30, and have the rest of my weekend.

  • When I was working I worked on Friday as usual unless I put in to have it off, which I can not remember ever doing.
    I do not shop on Black Friday either, though. Many years ago when I worked retail and or the food industry I worked it also and if I recall I had extra hours during that time as well.
    When I work in a hotel I worked every holiday.

  • I'm not working right now, but my brother works retail. He'll work 8pm to 2am on Thursday night/Friday morning, and then he goes back in at 8 on Friday morning. He enjoys it though, and he's loving the number of hours he's putting in.

  • Well, I'm a sahm, but this is the first year in awhile that we will be celebrating thanksgiving on thanksgiving with my family. My mom and little sister are nurses, and my mom normally works for someone else since all her children are grown. I guess she decided against it this year.
