Left because favoritism was shown..the DM would call from a blocked # so you couldn't call and bother him..They wanted me to drive 2 1/2 hours away for ASM training for two weeks straight(there and back). I told them I couldn't afford the gas and it didn't work with my kids school schedule and they didn't care..i was the only one on the register in a 14 HOUR shift more than once while every one else stocked and played around. It was so unprofessional.

Really depends on who the manager is. I know one who works around second job schedules and school schedules, and then I know of another that will give you all kinds of attitude. The second will tell you you may not have another job while only getting 10-15 hours and that you must have open availability to come in anytime they call. Yeah, can use the hours but kinda messed up if you made plans.

I left because they didn't give me enough hrs. The hours allotted to cashier's should be split evenly. Also ,corporate needs to give managers more hours to give! 4 hours A WEEK is almost like not having a job.
