Don't plan to have a life
sales (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – September 6, 2018
I took this job under the understanding that I would work 20-25 hours/week and it would almost always be Monday, Tuesday, and Friday. I was told the schedule is flexible and that early mornings I would know about weeks in advance. When I got started, On the first day I asked about my schedule for the week and the person in charge of that said why don't you come in tomorrow at 8 at xyz store. I thought that was just because it was the first day. I quickly found out this is how the company operates. There was no schedule and I never knew what to expect, making everything else in my life impossible. They now have a schedule online but it is changed constantly so still, no planning around work. Your schedule may change on your way to work. Some weeks I would end up working 40 hours, with no prior notification. Other weeks I may get 6-12 hours and still not know day to day if I would work or how long, making planning finances or anything else in life absolutely impossible. If you have nothing in your life to need to plan around and don't care if you get a small or large paycheck, this is the job for you. If you have kids and need childcare, forget it. You may be told the day before that you need to work at 4am. You may not even make enough to cover your daycare bill for the week. Other times you may be working quite a bit. Planning is impossible.
lack of schedule, micromanaging
