They are constantly cutting shifts but the store is always lacking cashiers, sales floor etc. Also always hiring even when employees are barely getting hours as is/being cut when showing up for a 5.5 hour shift and being sent home 2-3 hours early.

Most shifts you get are either between 4 and 5.5 hours in every part from cash to shipment. As a regular associate you should expect 2-5 shifts a week depending on your performance. If your work ethic excels and you have the availability, you can expect to be asked if you would like to be a lead, which can bump you up to around 20 hours a week. You can also swap shifts so if you would like more hours, you can be doing doubles.

3.5 to 5 hours is the average shift for an associate. 3-5 shifts per week. Shifts are often cut and sometimes last minute added. Serious lack in consistency for hours even as a strong associate.

Typically 4-5 hours a shift, depending on the employee. They give out hours based on productivity of employees. So if they feel you don't work as quickly or efficiently as others, they will give you as few hours as possible. For employees they believe work most effectively, they usually give them 6-8 hour shifts. The longest shift you will get is 9 hours. They never hire full time, only if you are applying for management. Every non-management employee is part-time. But, depending on how the management views your work ethic, you could be given a full-time schedule, while still only being considered part-time. Otherwise, you should expect minimum 1 shift a week and maximum 3 shifts.
