Yes, but we always work Christmas eve, Boxing day and New Years Eve/day. (You don't work all of those except on the rare occasion if you're a Christmas temp who wants/needs the hours!)

Report answer

Yes I had Christmas eve and Christmas day off

Answered - Sales Assistant (Former Employee) - Southend-on-Sea, Essex

Report answer

Hardly. You get Christmas Day off. And they will move your days around so it is your normal day off. No bonus days from this company.

Answered - Sales Assistant (Current Employee) - Peterborough, Cambridgeshire

Report answer

Working as a Christmas temp, I was told that you'd be obligated to keep Christmas Eve/Boxing Day open. You could get it off as your day off, but you should expect that you might work it. My store does take Christmas Day off though.


Report answer

Christmas day, yes. But you will be expected to work at least Christmas Eve or Boxing Day, preferably both.
