I worked here for a year and half and saw only a 25 cent raise and my hours were cut regularly. If you need a steady job, do not even bother filling out the application. My stores division required you to work an average of 38hrs a week for a 52 week period to obtain a full time position and that never happened to anybody I knew while I was there. Management will treat you like garbage and complain if you request time off. I requested a weekend off in April and was then lectured for "wanting too many weekends" in July for requesting another weekend off. If you limit your availability, you will probably be scheduled between 8-12hrs a week because they do not want to work with your schedule. If you want more hours they tell you to open your availability and then your lucky to get 30hrs. The union is garbage unless you somehow get fired, you will always have a job there unless you are caught stealing. Management makes you feel like your seniority means something, trust me it doesn't. If you have a family emergency, just die because the hassle of management is so ridiculous you'll want to kill yourself anyway. This is still the only job I have ever been punished for having an availability change for college

I left because the pay was very poor. they say $9/hr which is great on paper but when they only give you 16 hours a week you're barely bringing home $150 dollars a week. Less than $600 a month. You don't get a raise until you work there for 6 months. Working part time hours are terrible. You only get the hours you deserve when they are short staffed. When everything is running smoothly tho only expect about 16-20 hours a week (even tho they promise AT LEAST 25 hours to part time workers) Mangers expect you to do to much and are not very kind if you stay over time consistantly. The only people who really get paid good are department mangers and store mangers. Everyone else scraps the bottom of the barrell. This job is great if you don't have any real bills and you're a high school student. But as someone who has student loan debt, phone bill, living with my mom tryna get on my feet, working here feels like a waste of time.

Pay. And lack of respect. I was always paid less then I made at WalMart. Pay has gone up very little. They expect you to work so much harder than what the pay is. My hours were consistently cut. And it got so bad had to move out of my apartment. Couldn't fix my car. Lost some things I was keeping in a neighbors garage. I transferred to another store where hours were better. Then 2.5 years later get an apartment and bam. Hours cut again and I can't even pay rent. The union is worthless. Can't believe I let this company ruin my life.
