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.
Part-time is usually anywhere from 6-20 hours a week depending on availability.

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.

As a minor sales associate I work 2-5 times a week, shifts were usually about 3-4 hours long during the week but weekend shifts were usually longer.
