Today my boss informed us that there were no more single shifts we were all working doubles until further notice. Also there’s a way for us to “earn” a half day but we have to out sell everyone else in the office to get it. So being new I haven’t had time off in two weeks... FML

Check labor laws in your area. That's illegal where I'm at.

He means he's working 16 hour shifts 7 days a week. If you have to "earn" days off, you're working for a shit company.

Oh you "poor" thing. No time off in 2 whole weeks? How ever will you live? Get over yourself. There are people who literally never get time off. Quit bitching and do your job like the rest of the world.

Maybe he meant a day off? But yeah, i guess it works both ways.

You have to have been working a certain amount of time before you earn days off. "Being new", you don't get time off right away.

no matter how new you are, you're supposed to get a day or two off every week. They dont mean holidays, just a shift off

this is definitely not how any jobs I've worked, career based or retail, should treat their workers. it's illegal in most states

Maybe time off means one day? Most jobs give you that, no matter how new you are.

I work 20 12 hour day hitches, not so bad, money's good and you get used to it

And since you're in sales, you're probably on salary or commission and not even getting overtime. Find a new line of work.

If your in the usa the federal labor laws say they have to give you two days off per fortnight (no not the game) and to work you every day of the week like that they have to inform the department of labor and get permission. They can only have you work like that for couple of times a year (I think a total of a month or two a year). My uncle works for a auto manufacturer and told me about how they have to do that to have them work the month straight a year that they do.

Illegal. Call your labor board
