I say try to switch with someone or keep asking your boss if there is a way to switch. But if not, work your shift on Christmas Eve. It's not about the 40 bucks but about professionalism. It's your first job, so you want to build good work habits that you will maintain throughout your career. Yes, sometimes we get the shaft and get scheduled when we don't want to, but that's part of life. Having said that, what's more important is that you are working on a long term plan on what type of job or career you want in the future and these small part time jobs won't matter much. Also, when you begin your real career prospective employers won't care much about seasonal work you did at Toys R Us and you probably won't be putting it on your resume in a few years anyway. Merry Christmas, Peace Be With You.

Yes you can get fired from a seasonal job. Contrary to your beliefs, your employer is not required to schedule around your personal preferences. If you do not want to work Christmas eve, you should not have applied for a seasonal job. It would not be stupid not to hire someone who was fired for attendance. Prospective employers will ask the employer if you ever missed a day. The reason you missed the day is irrelevant. It is your fault that you are working a seasonal job that interferes with your regular holiday plans. You have unrealistic expectations about retail work and what the manager should do for you.

Just call the the manager and ask if there is anyway you could have the night off and work during the day. Be polite, and don't make it all about you.
