Ha! This seems to be up to the individual store manager, district and regional managers discretion. In Georgia they can keep you as long as they want to legally. My problem with us being kept so late is that there is very little notice as to how late we will be kept. Our schedule may list 9pm, but we can often be there up until 11pm. It used to be this way from Oct/Nov- Jan inventory, but we have been experiencing this since early-mid July of this year! We have been sent so much more send outs with no place to put them, that time is spent building top caps to the sky to store the merchandise until it sells down on the floor. The main problem is lack of communication as to how late we will be kept. No announcement of 'hey, this, this and this are what we need to accomplish before we can leave.' It's just incredibly frustrating and creates tension and unnecessary stress to the closing employees!

I'd have to come in on Sunday mornings sometimes and stay till like 3pm. But it was to prepare for inventory, or push out Christmas merchandise from the back.

My managers always try to get us out by 8:30pm-8:45pm every night or 9pm on Saturday night after changing ALL the ads. The latest I’ve ever had to stay was 11pm during the holidays to help move(condense) and clean up the Christmas section. My managers always try to plan ahead and get projects done during the day, but things can get in the way and slow us down.

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)

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).
