Well here’s the thing… according to the United States Department of Labor, a shift differential is where an employer pays works the regular hourly rate plus an additional dollar amount per hour. This applies to people who work after midnight but before 6am. So ideally you’ll get a little more for your pocket.
It’s all highlighted on the DoL’s website: http://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/compliance/whdfs54.htm
That’s epic!!! I would so have loved to see that! I mean the GE needs to be keeping both guests and team members happy. If we’re pissed off them you know it’ll affect the customer.
That’s what I was thinking…as long as you do it in advance and ask off there should be no trouble.
So I’ve heard that people really hate them because they don’t do anything that our normal PDA’s do. I swear if our store tries to go along with this change over I might be furious!
Think of it this way, you’ll get a shift differential from 1 am to 5am. That’s what I’ve been told.
Do we work at the same store? Because I’m pretty sure that’s what would be going on in my store at this very moment. Of course if you add the bad GSTL off to the side talking about doing weed with the lazy cart attendant…then yep that’s about right.
Good info to pass… there’s some days I know I’ll absolutely need off but they’re school related. Once that’s all out of the way, then I’m all Target’s bitch for the year.
