Applied for a part time seasonal position that never ended. Failed classes in school because work life balance did not exist. They claim there are no full time positions but they will fire everyone in your store and you'll be forced to take up empty shifts. If you accept them, corporate will pretend you did them a huge favor and tell you they appreciate – more... it, but the minute you decide that your life means more than baked by Melissa, they're cold and unforgiving. I went to school full time, only expecting to work the 15 hours I signed up for, only for managers to give me 10 hour shifts every day, closing the store at 11:30 and getting home at nearly 2:30 in the morning to wake up and go to school the next day. They didn't care. There's no such thing as promotions, they will not promote you. They could have no shift leaders left, they will not promote you. Counters did the work for shift leaders, sometimes being harassed, put in uncomfortable situations, only to be ignored by management.
Baked by Melissa will suck you dry. – less
