Good first job, not a solid career
Customer service sales associate (Former Employee) – Coeur d'Alene, ID – April 4, 2016
Hastings was a roller coaster ride for me. I worked there before they put a wage freeze on their employees. Once they implemented the wage freeze, the job environment changed. Workers were stressed from trickle down effects from corporate employees. The company was afraid of failing, and everyone felt it. Trying to start a family, and build a future with my wife, Hastings wasn't providing enough for me. I loved a lot of my co-workers. There are a few of them that are still good friends after I left. It helped having a flexible schedule at first, but once I wanted Full-time, instead of part-time, I wasn't able to get it. It took two years of covering shifts, and making my weekly hours above 30 hours for them to have to give me full-time status. Even then, I didn't have more than 30 often. I learned to find a better job, because I wasn't happy nor advancing in life. This kind of job was meant for high school or college students needing extra money on the side that fits their schedule.
Excellent scheduling, employee discount
