Posts and schedules are typically set by seniority. At my branch if you want hours from the start, you can inquire about a flex position. Be available for what ever is offered. Be motivated and enthusiastic. Professionalism and flexibility will take you far. Area Supervisors can be found standing posts.

No. There is no guarantee on hours or locations. They will give you a "set schedule" and then change it to whatever they want once you are in. They will reassign you without notice or letting you know why. Zero corrective criticism to help performance. There is only advancement if you are a branch favorite.
