It would be against the 1st amendment if you were sent to jail for saying it. However, the worst punishment you can receive is to be fired from your job, so it's clearly not a violation. Private businesses can make their own rules when it comes to things like this.

"Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech."
Notice it says Congress. Not "Jeff the local Best Buy manager."
Also, the penalty would be getting admonished or fired, right? I'm pretty sure many types of free speech could get you fired. If you work at McDonald's, I highly doubt you could tell all the customers "Burger King is a better bargain" and expect to keep your job on the basis of the 1st Amendment.
