Maybe I Should Work at Nordstroms

Well, it’s that time of year again.  When I complain about having to work on the holidays (sorry loyal readers).  Not that it will do much.  I mean, I don’t really think the CEO of my company is one to buck trends (more likely to do whatever Wal-Mart is doing).

Sure, it might be nice to enjoy the holidays, but not everyone has a job in these hard economic times (unless you apply at my store…which hardly anyone has [maybe that’s why my hours have increased so much this season] esp. when considering we offer the best seasonal pay in our region).  Of course, every time I read the “Tell you friends we’re hiring” signs, I feel like I should replace the word “friends” with “enemies” (have I made that joke before?).

But, once again we will be open earlier this year than we were last year on Thanksgiving (at least Target gives time-and-a-half).  Unfortunately, the lines will be just as long before the store opens as last year–stretching around the corner–and there’s no indication that that trend will improve (improve from my perspective).

At least a few stores are attempting to preserve the holidays.  Good on ya, Nordstrom’s.  At least some stores prefer to worry about their employees and winning customer loyalty instead of worrying about their bottom lines.
