Depends, when I first worked there two years ago I got all the hours I wanted (16hrs/week during the school year, 32-40hrs/week in the summer). But business isn't great because the housing market is currently down so hours get cut. Full-time associates under contract are safe but students get the worst of it. Some weeks over the winter I would only get 4hrs/week.

The people who work there are really great and super friendly, it feels like one big family, at least at the mount pearl location. Theres a lot of useful life skills that can be learned there, I learned things about basic electrical and plumbing work that I never would've known had I not worked there.
