You are expected to work Monday day, then come back in at midnight to set up new releases for Tuesday. Then you may possibly do the same Thursday day, then come in a t midnight for a Friday release that no customer is even waiting on at 12:01am anymore. So you have to decide when and if you will even sleep. Forget about having quality time with your kids, you are too tired and short tempered from lack of sleep. But at least you get told thanks for your hard work in a message. Whoopty-do! There is no work/home life balance. The last minute REQUIRED work schedule changes are frequent and cause havoc trying to work out dealing with your childcare. Definitely hurts single mothers. Definitely benefits men who have no worries about that exact thing!

For TSL .. especially during resets .. it is HE**. Average hours is usually over 50 a week every week, I have NO time for family .. by the time you get home, you are too exhausted to care about anything! Too many clients, not anywhere NEAR enough help and we are told "You don't need additional help you should be able to do this !"

I would start with a schedule of 35 hours, part time. Each day my DM would add more hours and more stores up to 75 hrs. Had to constantly check my phone every four hours or so to keep up because he usually didn't let me know.

They make you work days and nights and even over 12, 14, 14, even 17, hours in a day because they schedule so many resets and select it all to be completed with enough employees to help. And upper management uses scare tactics they say on conference calls if you can't get work done then they will find somebody that can? When you do not have enough help.
