Is Sprint a retailer?

They are closed on the big 4 federal holidays... If you are talking the grocery or CS's then most of the time employees would...brace yourselves.... REQUEST to work the holiday solely because of the pay differential. Employees that are off are paid for 8 hours, those that work earn double pay or more.

In our call centers employees that worked during thanksgiving dinner were paid the highest %. Also some families do lunch, and others do dinner. This presents management with a bit more variables to consider in schedule, but most often employees are not disenfranchised of their TG dinner with their family if at all possible. Although I'm sure it does happen unfortunately some times.
