I certainly feel for you. I bet customers aren't even grateful as they expect most places to be open nowadays.

nope as the gov increased holiday allowence my company have stopped all bank holidays double time and increased opening hours used to be open 9 till 6.30 double time but since april its now open 9 till 930 and just normal basic and we opened good fri first time ever used to get that off paid
#16
my jobs changed so much since i started we used to open at 10.15 now its 9 used to close at 5 then changed to 630 used to only be open till 930pm for 5 months of the year roughly, now all year we shut at 9.30 used to get double time sundays and bank holidays now we get neither and used to be shut good fri,23,24,25dec so nice little xmas break now only shut one day a year xmas day and that has to be taken as a holiday day or a day off for that week. not getting payrise this year either cos of economy etc but suppose least i still got a job

I'm at work, luckily not stuck here 8-8 like some others though I'm in on overtime (double time), for some of them its their shift pattern so an 8-8 shift with no extra pay or time off at all. What a wonerful company we work for!
#19
My company boss is taking all commission away from us now.....which is what attracetd alot of people in the first place.....its a new owner we#ve had for a year and a half, and his excuse for doing this was "i dont like commission, it makes people greedy.....and with that....this is a man who decides to open on boxing day, new years day, good friday AND bank holiday mondays longer hours than we've ever previously opened.....slight contradiction fo terms i believe!
