A manager I know loves telling the story of how she works through Thanksgiving because she's so dedicated 🙄

Someone doesn't know how to set boundaries. There is literally nothing important enough that should take you away from a day off for Thanksgiving.

Worked holidays for years as an EMT so it was nice to start having more days off when I came to mck

Lol, wasn’t a choice. Boundaries need to change to circumstances. Is it urgent, sort of. Could it have been better planned by people above my pay grade, maybe.

Did you volunteer to work?

Used to work in engineering/construction in a chemical plant. Only worked during the holidays when the equipment was down. Pretty much like work ~10 days/year and chill the rest. Not a bad trade off.

Why? Go live?

Thanksgiving work should be limited to emergency services, soldiers on the “front lines,” travel industry and ... what am I missing. Stores opening at 10pm could sell just as much if they all agreed to kick off on Friday at 8am.

Hi Fishes! Currently approaching the end of an interview process with Deliveroo process but they haven't mentioned the compensation at all during the process.
