Employee View of Black Friday

Posted: Updated:
KENNEWICK, Wash. -- At Best Buy in Kennewick, over 500 people gathered for the beginning of Black Friday. And employees say now, they are trying to get the store back in order.

Shanta Rosenstock is the Customer Experience Manager at the Kennewick Best Buy. She says she had been working since 4:20 Friday morning and was still there at around seven o'clock that night.

But she says like Black Friday shoppers, she and other employees relied on adrenaline to get through the day.

She says, "It is kind of like a high. Yeah, just energy, you just get really excited. Everybody smiles, everybody helps and gets everything the customers needed."

Now, employees are filling empty shelves after many DVDs, MP3 players and other items were completely sold out.

Best Buy employees say every one of their 60 or 70 person staff worked Black Friday, even some workers who were only hired for the Christmas season.
