10. In college I worked overnights in a K-Mart
we were locked in at 9:30 and "released" at 7:00 AM. We got an 1 1/2 hr lunch break - unpaid. We couldn't leave the building, of course. We had a 12x15 foot breakroom in which to watch the one network channel that ran all night. Back then smokers could smoke inside, so those who couldn't spent their lunch hour and 1/2 with chain smokers getting their nicotine fix.

We were contract cleaners (you can't even imagine how filthy a K-Mart can get in the winter in the midwest). They had one overnight worker who did inventory type stuff. Sometimes, we could hear the bump and scurrying of workers who were secreted in the viewing rooms with he mirrors - staying overnight - all night, to make sure that some low wage janitors didn't snitch a Snickers Bar. I've done a lot of different jobs in 43 years - this was beyond horrible.

I would imagine they are lying if they say that NO ONE is in their stores overnight.
