I'm working retail for the first time over Thanksgiving Break and Black Friday. Any tips?
Wear comfortable shoes, eat a good wholesome meal before your shift, drink plenty of water, get plenty of rest. It's going to be insane. Stay safe!
I loved working Black Friday!
- if you’re driving over to work leave extra early and park where your work tells you to park (one place I worked had us park in a lot a couple miles from the mall and take a shuttle over)
- pack a lunch/snack/coffee (you may not have enough time to get food on your break due to long lines)
- wear comfy shoes
- dress in layers (stores can get hot with all the extra people)
Good luck: I went out only once on Black Friday. Turned around, came home and went back to bed...
Roll with the punches. I worked retail on Black Friday some years back, and it was an exhilarating experience.
Take Valium - lots of it.
