I work part time and for the past 2 months I’ve been forced to work 35-39 hours a week. Managers never asked or made any attempt to work with me on scheduling before posting these hours. They won’t make any of us full time but are gladly taking advantage of part time employees who get paid less. We are one of the last big box retail stores paying less than $13 an hour and it’s not my fault no one wants to work here

When they make you work close to 40 hours a week, on your last day of work that week "accidentally" go over 40 hours. It will be too late to do anything about it on that pay period. Do that a few times and they will either have to make you full time, or they will pay more attention to giving you less hours.
Part timers get whatever they want. No nights no weekends. Call off continuously and still keep there job. There is zero accountability when you are part time.
No one forces hours on anyone!!!
Wake up and fill out availability form!!!
That is a joke——- part timers get all the horrible shifts and treated badly, generally. Full timers are a joke— they are no different than anyone else...
Sooooo, you obviously have a bad attitude about working there. Do everyone a favor and quit. Customers enjoy happy employees— not stale, negative ones.
It’s not to late to change your ways!!!
I have never seen part timers not picking up slack. I am retired but still work part time and full timers and leads only delegate—— because they are lazy and go on break all day. Upper management laughs at part timers and never reprimand leads or full time.
All upper management turn their heads at any problem they are exposed to and all sit in offices all day. Today was inventory and nearly every manager n inventory full timers sat in offices— while we counted. That’s another thing — we have 5 full time inventory people in our store that do nothing, at their desks, all day, every day. I was a store manager for over 38 years and it’s so obvious how much money they are making compared to output. Very sad, sad, sad hiring from HR all the way down to part time sales. God bless us all!!
Hmmm I know alot of fulltimers that get away with stuff at my location than part timers... the full timers at our location are allowed to leave whenever they want, take a break whenever they want and call out whenever they want, but yet when a part timer does it, they get fussed at for calling out one day
The part timers at my store have it made. They can basically make their own schedule. They change their availability to no weekends or nights and it gets approved. Normally ask off for all holidays and call off often without getting in trouble.
When they do show up, they take multiple breaks or are found hanging out in other departments talking to their friends.
Full timers have to pick up all the slack.
Stand up for yourself. If you are part time management can't force you to work full time hours. If it continues tell management to get lost. Get a backbone.
