    Wow! No need to boast now.. :p:

    Mind you, I found out I had a bonus today. Our shop does this nice bonus scheme so I made £38. Not a lot it sounds, but that's 2 and a half days work for me! Yippeee yay!

    Jesus! how did you even find this thread!? it's 10 years old... But i'd check your contract...I wouldn't go in just expecting double pay.

    I got paid time and a half for boxing day, we get same for new years day, and have to work at least one of them.
    Xmas day the store is closed, so we have to take any hours out of our holiday entitlement (thank god it was only my 6hr shift), but Tuesday this year is bank holiday again...but my employer doesn't recognise it as such and so we are only getting normal slightly above minimum wage to work it..
