Retail stores are the devil. No consistent schedules. No pay raises. No benefits. And no life outside of work. I worked at a sears store for a few months and it was sad what they did. They had this one girl opening and closing the store. Doing store manager duties. And she only made minimum wage!

Not good news for the new work force in America,seems alot of these poor workers will bill starting out with a very poor credit rating too and be forced into the 20% plus interest rates,and finding a new rental to live in after being evicted from their past apartment!

Shame on the new American Greed.

This on-call scheduling is a desperate attempt to cut payroll to the absolute minimum.  They want the people there if they have customers, but they don't want to pay them if the customers don't show.

Of course, it is also a reaction to absenteeism and sick calls. 

I had a restaurant job with an on-call person.  The on-call had a greater responsibility to be available than the person who was actually scheduled.  I was on-call on a day for a family reunion.  They called, and I was unavailable.  I got fired. 

If the .01 percent weren't so damn greedy (and the roughly 40 percent so damn shiftless) maybe there'd be a break for the folks who actually want to work.  2 Thessalonians 3:10

I'm so allergic to bosses, I can't even do warranty work. 

Sigh.
