At the Duck U Bookstore.
I suspect some of you are scratching your head, wondering just what's going on... and believe me, I understand. The position was open in July, why didn't I apply then? Well, that's an easy question to answer: I have the self-confidence of a spavined flea (and "spavin" is a word that just isn't used enough these days). It wasn't until I successfully ran the store through Fall Rush, the busiest time of the school year, that I realized that I could actually do the job... and maybe even do it well, to boot. Of course, by that time the open position had been filled. Well, when it opened up again, I immediately got my application in... and here we are. MUSIC BREAK!
So back to the story. I've been open-to-close ever since everything went down two weeks ago, because I'm the only person in the store with keys. Or an alarm code. Or access to the safe. And the server. And the ability to do payroll, receiving, shipping, you name it, I'm pretty much it. So, yeah, a little worn out... but with the opportunity to become store manager of the Duck U Bookstore. More news as it breaks.

No, not really. The only reason I'm doing open-to-closes right now is because there's nobody else here. In a normal store, this wouldn't be an issue.
Managers are expected to work as many hours as it takes to get stuff done. If that means 60 hours in a week, so be it. At this time of year, 40 would be the norm. So I guess the real answer to your question would be "it depends."

I'm a huge Pink Floyd fan, and in fact I'm listening to Sheep right now. Somehow I've never been free to make it to a concert whenever they were close, but that's going to change (at least sort of) this year, I have tickets in hand to see Roger Waters The Wall in may. I imagine it's going to be quite the experience, I know someone in New Zealand who caught the show there and says it's amazing.
