As an associate in the electronics department, a bulk of the work is carried by us. Aside from helping customers with buying electronic products and providing cashier support, I also had to answer questions about other departments. Sometimes, we will be asked to help out in these other departments as well, with zoning and stocking.
The hours are long as well. If you're PT, you may get up to 35 hours a week, which is above the 28 hour limit. Personally, I didn't sign up for FT. And if you are scheduled for 28 hours, you may also get called in. Be careful, because my manager tends to guilt trip me into going.
Long hours for part timers, busy with multiple departments
