Yes, but only after they are hired for permanent part-time. And they actually make 19 after the probationary period if they are permanently hired.

Report answer

Every employee starts at the same rate of pay. Merchandisers get paid the same amount as a cashier or food court assistant. The pay scale goes up by hours worked not based on skills or areas unless you are a forklift driver or supervisor. I am a merchandiser and make well over 16 an hour because I have worked for the company long enough to move through the scales.
