To be honest I don't even really know what black friday is and why it's important

I don't think it happens in australia

All I remember is seeing news headlines like '5 people killed being trampled to death shopping at walmart on black friday'

No sympathy from me OP. I've worked black friday 3 times in a mall. I don't know which is worse, working the midnight madness shift, or working a closing shift.

Just because I can, I'm gonna rub it in. This is one of the worst years to ever work black friday. It's what I call a "console year". Two new gaming consoles, both only a few weeks old? If there is a hell, it surfaces on black fridays like this.

I feel you. Black friday isn't a thing here (except online) but every year we have a sale in June and July which is like a super long extended version of Black Friday for 2 months and it coincides with tourist season and my store is a tourist magnet for some inexplicable reason. You'd think the crowds would be spread out over the two months but somehow everyone is paranoid that the sale is ending the day they're there (because there are no fixed dates for the sale and every store has its own dates/promotions/etc, nothing's done in advance) which is GREAT for business but shit for anyone who doesn't want to deal with people fighting over stupid things.

My first day of work I saw two middle-aged Russian fighting over a pair of flip flops and I had no idea what to do because I didn't want them to fight with me. Seriously though???? You can buy the exact same things for a tenth of the price from LITERALLY EVERY OTHER STORE IN THIS COUNTRY BECAUSE EVERYONE WEARS FLIP FLOPS ALL THE TIME THEY ARE NOT A VALUABLE COMMODITY YOU IDIOTS, calming buying $80 rubber flip flops which are of much worse quality than $50 flip flops or even $5 flip flops is ridiculous on its own but fighting over them????? yuck

Black Friday starts on Wednesday these days, and as early as Sunday some places.

I actually hope that my place of employment is crowded when I am working on Friday.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Let's see.

The Midnight madness shift:

You've eaten your thanksgiving dinner (hopefully). You deal with madness. When your shift is over it's like a sudden stop to the suffering.

The closing shift:

You're tired after your last break. You're now dealing with customers who are asking if "maybe you have something of (insert random item here) left in the back somewhere." They have you searching the back of house for that stupid shit. You lie to them because the RF gun says 0 in inventory. You clean up the store late at night. It's like a bomb went off.


I prefer the midnight madness shift. This is my 4th Black Friday. I'll be working from 4pm Thanksgiving until 8am Black Friday.

Great Singapore Sale?
Missed it, I was in Holland. But, everything is ridiculously cheap in that season, especially for Singapore.

yup! I buy most of my stuff during that time and when I'm on vacation (because I can get stuff that I can't find here), but it's hell to work through.

I've never had to work on black friday. And I've never went shopping on that day either. Now there's no point because you can get the same deals online, sometimes better with no tax. And most places have a week long sale anyway.
#22
I'm glad I'm not in Baltimore, it's not uncommon for people to get trampled trying to rush into stores when they open. Only job I've worked on black friday was delivering food, and that was interesting, especially when I had to deliver like 1 pizza to a store inside the local mall.
#23
I worked 2 black Fridays, one in the middle of the night, another closing. It can get a bit crazy but it's mostly just messy, that's for my experience only. I worked at Macy's but I was working for Coty Prestige so I wasn't manning a register, just handing out fragrance samples and getting customers the cologne or perfume they wanted. At JCPenney I did work a register for a bit but I was called to pick up and fold children's clothes in the aisles which was easier.
#24
I've worked black Friday at Wal-Mart two years in a row. It was pretty terrible, to say the least. I have a new job at a pet store as the "fish expert." We're opening at 6AM (3 hours early), and have deep discounts on animals and supplies. Can't wait to see the line of people needing fish that early.

I honestly just hope no one gets seriously injured this year. Some of those Wal-Mart videos from years past are seriously disheartening.

Fortunately only Amazon do a Black Friday thing here, which allows me to by all my family Xmas presents on the cheap.

Black Friday is the grossest display of consumer/material excess. Fuck it.

I find it quite disturbing how everyone sits down at the table and gives thanks for everything in their lives. Then the next morning they rush out to take place in the most disgusting worship of material wealth and greed in the history of mankind.

Food fights aren't actually a thing though, they're just on like Disney channel shows. Actually I think cooking shows and stuff on the food network produce a ridiculous amount of wasted food.

Nah I've seen a few food fights in real life.

But yeah that too. Or those eating contests where people throw up after.
