I work 4 hours per week sometimes 8, during 2018 hours were plentiful, now it’s pathetic and not even worth the gas to drive 30 miles and back to go work 4 hours. Long layoff periods of 2 to 4 weeks where their was no hours period.
Hours were shaved when the state minimum wage in California raised from 11 to 12 and it seems they’re cutting every corner they can to save money so they pass this burden off on the employees where in turn hours and pay ends up reduced for us.
This is not the job to apply for if you’re looking for a stable and study paycheck, if you want to feel under appreciated and never get a raise then apply here.
Never having any idea whether you work that day or not because your manager will just drop you in at 2 a.m. in the morning to work that day. I basically learned that the first thing I had to do when I roll out of bed was checked the schedule to see if I was on call that day or not. 75% of the time not having the products in the store to purchase and pass out and then telling you to stand there for 6 hours and make it an educational event. watching other people come in and set up their cards and leave for the entire day and then come back and shut down their cards and go home never having passed out of single sample.
As a current HC assembler I haven't worked in 2 seasons, it is unpredictable at the start and end of the season. They're reasonably flexible with scheduling but the compensation isn't really that good unless you're an assembling demon that can do 100 of the middle/ top range grills per day,
