Part time employees don't even get pay, or the hours each week in order to EARN A PAYCHECK that's not laughable.

Ha, no! I don’t know if managers do, but associates certainly don’t. As long as you have a doctors note or someone to cover you, though, they won’t write you up for being gone.

I think it depends on where you live. I see a lot of people reporting that only full timers get coverage, but I am a part time (~25 hours) employee in Concord, NC, and I have preventative, dental, and vision.

No. They don't even ask you how are you feeling after you came back from being sick.

You have to work 25 hours or more in order to apply for any type of benefits the company offers. You also have to work more than 5 hours to get a 30 minute break in the state of Indiana anyway.
