Do they let you choose your own working hours?

Read 45 answers

  • If you work at a store, yes you can choose your own hours if you are a regular associate. They can not make you work outside of your availability.

  • No, shifts vary for 24 hour facilities.

  • No, they will ask you if you can work at a designated starting time and end time. The schedule will vary from Monday through Sunday, and some days may not even be 8 hours.

  • No, they will choose your time and hours, including Friday, Saturday, and late evenings.

  • It all depends on your availability. When you can work.

  • I've been there quite a while. Started out working full time for many years. I became beaten down, so to speak, and began to lessen my availability more and more. Now my availability is down to 4 short shifts and I chose the busiest evenings, too. Including Friday and Saturday. I have less anxiety, but they are cutting me to 8 hours a week- no matter how quality my work is. I work hard. They don't care.

  • They think that people can survived 10 hours a week. I put my availability is working friday Saturday sunday any times is just two days a week that i can work 6 hours and like a closer. You would thought that having a person that wants to work in the heavy traffic for the store and voluntarily work 6 hours and like a closer the rest of the day would br perfefct in special that the company cutting hours but still have you only 10 hours a WEEK 4 hours is ridiculous. Very disappointed

  • I have always picked my own hours. I just tell them when I am and am not available. Sure I don't get as many hours as if I had open availability, but as a military spouse whose husband is gone a lot and having children who I can't afford daycare for there is nothing I can do about it. It has never been an issue so far. I've worked as a cashier like that and now as a CSM like that. I usually do about 30 hours a week, sometimes more or less.

  • No way, at the DC it’s 12 hour shifts with breaks in between. But it’s not bad

  • No, if you were 8 hours you’re supposed to take a break every two hours.
