    So what is up being scheduled to 11pm and not actually ever leaving at that time.  
     
    I've worked at Fry's forever and closed many many nights. I can only count a handful of times we've closed and actually left at 11pm.  
     
    Most of the time we leave around 12am to 2am.  
     
    I have shit to do, pets, friends and family to be with, beauty sleep, and even sometimes a morning shift the next day. What the fuck is going on?  
     
    Stores like Target and Walmart have a dedicated overnight crew who clean up and stock the store. That way is more efficient and allows employees to focus on making the store money.

    Which store is that?? Usually down here in San Marcos most everyone gets out around 11, 1130 at the latest. There may be a very few times when that might happen, but that's usually due to some big sale like black Friday or the anniversary sale. Does your store have a cleaning crew come in at night and are locked up in the store? We do, but they just do basic stuff like clean the floor, empty all the trash cans, etc. I guess your store aren't as strict with overtime then ours is.

    They save tons of money and having the closing shift restock. They would spend a shitload more money hiring an overnight crew. Why hire more people when you already have lazy ass associates on the clock doing nothing anyway.

    When I use to work at the San Diego store I complained about getting out at 1am and complained about Sam. I wrote an anonymous letter then I was forced to fess up to writing the letter even though I wrote that I wanted to be anonymous. If the store had a overnight crew maybe employees would put stuff in the right stuff and they could fully stock the store instead of doing a half ass job.aka Luis - FrysForum Administration Group

    Fry's overnight crew are janitors. They don't do shit but masturbate and steal.
