I work very random hours, sometimes I’m opening, sometimes I’m closing. Sometimes I have to close then open the next morning. I work anywhere from 2 hours a day to 10+ hours a day. Right now I’m working 10+ hours a day, 6 days a week because we’re short staffed.

No not all. Not unless you get officially promoted in position. Say from associate to key holder, key holder to assistant store manager. Otherwise i'm afraid not.
