Gotta work xmas eve, everyone gets xmas day off and for some stupid reason the company has decided that its now cost effective to open boxing day even though its going to be a waste of time but luckily I haven't been scheduled to work boxing day.

Are you kidding me? I work at a grocery store, as much as I love my job this time of year is chaos unbriddled. There's no time for time off. People want to eat.
Thankfully I get Saturday and Sunday off but then comes New Year's week where the chaos enters a whole new level.

I have the pleasure of working from 10 a.m. on the 24th until 10 a.m. on the 26th. Unfortunately people do not cease getting hurt or setting things on fire even though it is X-mas.

Possibly Christmas Eve. Believe all employees get the 25th off. Them giving me thanksgiving off might've been a predictor of what was to come lmao

I'm working it, and it's why I have 0 sympathy for people who whine about having to work Thanksgiving, as I work that too. I actually shop more at stores that make their employees work the holiday because, if I have to work it, everyone else should too.

Working on 24th and 25th. Off for 31st and Jan 1st. It's all good.


at least they are paying you 2x plus 8-10 hr of PTO ?


x1.5/hr for the Holidays. I didn't join the union so no paid day off, even on Holidays. I was offered a few times but I'd lose $12,000/year if I join. My fiance/legal domestic partner gets me health/dental insurance to avoid Obamacare penalty so I have no use for it.


union? there's no union here though

my company will pay 1.5x + 8 hr of PTO if you work on a major holiday..

i didn't know unions are still around

23rd, 26th & 30th are paid holidays and I am using 3 days of PTO for a cheap 10 day vacation.

And that was after using 3 days of PTO for a 9 day vacation over the Thanksgiving holiday.

No. My place of employment closes.

This actually a bad thing as the day after will be a waking nightmare from which there is no escape.
