    Today was my first shift of being the sample lady at H.F. I thought I'd share what was on my tray today:

    Beef Summer Sausage paired with our Sweet Hot Mustard
    Turkey Summer Sausage paired with our Cranberry Mustard
    Honey Ham paired with our Honey Pineapple Mustard
    Our Sharp Cheddar Cheese Ball
    Our Garden Vegetable Spreadable Cheese
    Our Traditional Italian Blend Block Cheese

    It was fun and the time passed pretty quickly. It wasn't horribly busy but the assistant manager and I managed to nearly double our sales goal before my shift ended. :woohoo:

    Here's a tip = really as I have been working 7:30am - 5:OO PM and then dash to the next job to work 5:10 - 10:10 M-F - been like this since 9/14

    2.) DON"T SKIMP ON INSERTS - be jellin' not yellin'
    3.) TAKE 2 Tylenol about 15 minutes BEFORE your shift.

    And drink plenty of water -

    and of course LAUGH as much as you can - :tongue:

    Black Friday is FUN! That was one of my favorite days when I worked retail. Time goes so fast, people are so much fun to watch, and since you're offering food, they should be pleasant .

    Yeah, TM!!! Good job. My only other tip is to SLOW DOWN and enjoy the people. Everyone is stressed but when they sense you are genuine, not a robot saying the same thing to everyone else, they relax. And, they might buy!!!

    Ok now I am hungry. I didn't mind working on Black Friday. No time to get bored. It is constant business. And with food you are going to be golden. I too would make sure the shoes are good. I stand a lot to teach my CPR classes and I make sure that my shoes are in good condition. Continue to enjoy what your doing.

    That sounds really good to me- I hate to think what I would weigh if I had a job like that!! I hope you enjoy the job and meet some nice people.

    Black Friday will go very fast. The day after Christmas goes quickly too. People have money to spend and go for the sales. Enjoy the extra cash!
