The employee handbook will tell you one thing and your department manager will tell you otherwise. 32hrs being full time isnt true for everyone. You're expected to meet 40hrs a week or suffer a forced status change to part time and possible pay cut
ALWAYS watch your back. always going to be you against the world. If you're not the favorite, you won't get anything you need. If you don't do someone else's job you will be public enemy #1. If you do their job you will get in trouble for asking for too much.
