    If you do this on a regular basis, of course, because it shows you're accommodating, loyal, and helpful. But if this is just a one-time thing, don't count on getting any brownie points.

    When I used to work as a waitress in a private club I was constantly covering people's shifts who were "sick". I also came in early or stayed late when my employer asked. I was a hard worker with a good attitude. After only 5 months of work I received a $500 bonus compared to other staff who received much, much less (these were the staff who always called in sick all the time). I had no idea about these bonuses until I actually received one.

    Not necessarily "brownie" points but it will probably be noted that you helped out, If you are always available to cover a shift when help is needed your might get some sort of acknowledgement.

    Source(s): have worked in Service industry as a manager, it takes more than one time helping out to get points.

    I assume you mean brownie points, and mentally, yeah I guess. If you make yourself available and are a helpful person people will start to think better of you.

    I don't think the asker meant brownie points. It's possible the asker meant "browning" as in brown nosing. [kissing up to management in hopes it will pay off]

    Yes, you will earn "browning" points.
