It can be fun depending on if you get scheduled with people. If you're alone, it will be boring. Most of the time the store is dead so you get paid to stand there.

You can get anywhere from 4 hours a week to 30. I'm short hour (which means I'm not supposed to have more than 20 a week) but I've have weeks where I've worked 35+ hours. Some days you'll get a 4 hour shift and some days you'll get an 8 hour shift. Depends on the time of year (holiday season you always get longer shifts). Also, don't be surprised if during the holiday season when all the seasonal associates show up and take all your hours while getting paid more than you.

We are expected to get 1 credit per 20 hours of work in (used to be 1 a week) but push for as many as you can get. Ask every customer. Sales goals n credit goals change every day on the take 5. Every shift you have goals that you are supposed to meet and it changes every shift depending on hours worked that day, peek or slow hours, times of year etc it based on a few things. I do not get commissions I get an hourly rate.
