Forced to work on Black Friday
THANK YOU for making this site!! I’m glad that I have a secret place to vent my anger at the evil red and white bullseye called Target.
I can’t believe this crap. When I saw my schedule this week it said that I had both Thanksgiving and Friday (Black Friday) off. This made me very happy because I loathe working on Black Friday not because of the deals on electronics (I don’t get paid enough in this crappy company) but because I want to avoid all of the craziness of the crowds and traffic. I’d rather be relaxing at home after a good Thanksgiving dinner. But all of a sudden on Wednesday when my shift is over I’m told to come in Thanksgiving night to help out with Black Friday no ifs, ands, or buts. This not only ruins my Thanksgiving because all I think about all day is that I have to go back to my shitty job to deal with guests but also I was just watching the PBS News hour about Black Friday sales where some ASM at a different Target was talking about how employees have a “choice” of if they want to work black Friday or not. I was practically yelling at my tv “THATS A LOAD OF BULLSHIT!!!”
I’m so pissed off now. I’ve been job searching for weeks now not only because of these holidays that I’m forced to work, or dealing with idiot Guests and rude co-workers but because all in all working for Target really sucks. Can’t wait to leave!
