The latest I stayed was 10pm during the holiday season. there is not clear cut rule that you have to be out by a certain time UNLESS you are pre-approved for personal reasons (high schoolers on school nights for example).
typically stay the latest on truck days (wednesday) and Saturdays (busiest sales day)
You stay until the work is done or you are told you can go.
During an 8hr sift you should get 30 min lunch and two 15 min breaks. They can' work you more than 16 hrs per day. thats the law. hope this helps
Why aren't there clear 'policy's ???
Depends on how poorly the Mgr has planned (or failed to plan usually) things out that week. Don't expect to see your family or friends much, if at all. You will be lucky to get 6 hours sleep a night.
It is retail. It depends a lot on how well your manager plans things out. There were a handful of nights during my years there that we didn't leave until 1am on a Sunday morning (yes..Sunday morning despite stating they do not work Sundays).
I think it was til 10 PM.

Policy? You leave when they say you can leave. They don't ask, they tell. And it's rarely appreciated. Usually met with more yelling.

There is no policy! If you are asked to stay later than your scheduled time and say that you aren't able to, then usually they get their revenge by lowering your scheduled hours the next schedule. Some are NEVER expected to stay, and you are never thanked or appreciated for doing so, EVER
