At my location, I was started off with 36 hours. Pressured into taking more clients and working six days a week right out of training. I’m now going into my third week with this company and am at a minimum of 40 hours (this week will be 46 hours) and I’ve only had one day off. They call me nearly every other day to pick up the slack of other employees. So the hours are available here, but they are ridiculous time schedules that make getting much done in your personal life the true job.
