Is Your Job Busier During the Holidays?

Now that Thanksgiving is almost here, it’s official — the holidays have begun. Whether you plan to take advantage of Black Friday deals and start your shopping now or you tend to wait until the last minute, your post-work schedule is bound to ramp up for the next several weeks.

But, what about your work life? Some industries — retail, for one! — get exponentially busier during the holidays, while others tend to slow down until after the New Year. Which category does your job fall into?

Actually, we get quite a bit slower during holidays. People go out of town or whatever and the clinics are usually closed. We still have to work the holidays for emergencies, but the workload is a LOT lighter.

Another perk of working in entertainment, everyone takes the holidays off! At the last studio I worked for, we would get the whole week between Christmas and New Year's off, paid too! I miss that company.

No, thank God. I work with computers for a company...however, I do remember being a waitress and having to deal with the chaos in my college days!

Yes, but we don't have Black Friday sales, thankfully.
