I am fairly new and get about 30-35 hours constantly. My shifts are all over the place and can make it very hard to work around occasionally. May just be because my department is small though. Luckily they release schedules weeks in advance.

I’m a produce ATL and currently we require our team members to have open availability. I do try and schedule fairly and obviously help to accommodate any scheduling needs without sacrificing department coverage

I had to work every weekend and only got closing shifts in Portland Maine. But I am over 50. That means you are destined for cleanup duty only. If you are cute and young you will probably be fine.
