Other: No, I don't do crowds.

The whole concept of Black Friday repulses me.

I used to do it before it was a thing.  I always went to stores the day after holidays to buy things on sale.  Halloween was the best. The day after, everything was half off or more. Once it became a trend, it wasn’t fun anymore. Too crowded and too many rude people.  I once had merchandise grabbed right out of my hands by someone else. Someone saw, stepped in and grabbed it back for me, then blocked her while I ran to the register. but the woman followed me out to the car and told me I had bought HER things. It was crazy and I never went again.

That's horrible! I worked at Macy's for 12 1/2 yrs. I quit in May. I am really going to enjoy the Holiday season this year.

I voted other also as my answer would be no for the same reasons as you.  Working it was bad enough. People are nuts, whiny and entitled. I will not miss it!

I can’t even imagine working retail during the holiday season.  You need nerves of steel.

lol, I wasn't in sales, that would not have been a good fit personality wise. Horrible job at holiday time.

I was in support, first as a merchandiser (taking care of incoming stock and putting it on the floor, keeping the floor neat in Housewares part of home), then as as a signer,updating the signs as sales began and ended also in Housewares. Except for the hours, it was kind of fun.

I will say, that in 12 1/2 years I only had 4 of what I would call "bad" customers. Pretty good for that long and my personality, lol!
