Unless you’re desperate, STAY AWAY!!!!!
Assembler (Former Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – September 14, 2018
As the title states, unless you’re desperate for a job that pays extremely low wage, hardly few to no hours, no breaks, or you’re in high school just starting out in the job market: STAY AWAY!!!
This is NOT a job that will pay you well. Dealing with low income families, drug addicts, and thefts isn’t worth being paid $9 an hour. Management will do everything in their power to refuse you a break. By law you’re allowed a break but oftentimes I didn’t get to take mine. Working 6 hours or more you’re allowed a 30 minute in-paid break but you’ll never receive it. They’ll work you 6 hours on the dot no more no less. Their “policies” on calling out is borderline illegal. You’re basically allowed one call out you’re entire tenure if you called out again you’re fired. Sick? Family emergency? Unexpected emergency? Oh well if you call out you’re risking your job. I can understand people abusing the call out option to just not want to show up to work but when you have an honest to God emergency, an act of God happens, or you’re genuinely sick they really don’t care. Time off? Good luck getting anything approved.
Getting full time is impossible. I was told only store managers are allowed full time. You WILL NOT have any opportunities for advancement. Cashiers, assemblers, or sales floor are all part time and do not receive many hours. I was given 15 hours at most. That is NOT enough hours to make a living wage. Extremely short shifts.
Extremely low wages. No breaks. Cannot call out unless you want to be fired. No hours.
