Every store I managed, I tried to make the holiday schedules as fair as possible. I put up sign up sheets for the employees and asst managers to pick 2 of the last 3 holidays(Thanksgiving, Xmas, & New Years) they preferred to work. I also kept track of how many holidays each employee worked, so on one was having to pull all the holidays while someone else always had them off. It wasn't perfect, but it was the best I could do within company guidelines.
The truth is you're the weak and I am the tyranny of evil men. But I'm tryin Ringo...I'm tryin real hard to be the shepherd.
