My store often schedules people only 3 or 3.5 hours so they don't have to give them breaks. Most people get 4 or 5 hour shifts. Full-timers are obviously 8 hours. Because we're only open 9-6 Saturdays and 10-6 Sundays, supervisors are scheduled for the whole day, which sometimes I find kind of long. Holidays are 9-6 and insanely busy, and that's a really long day.

Full time staff work 8 hour shifts. Full-time is considered as >28 hours/week, but most staff work about 35-40 hours/week. Shift times are scheduled according to the hours the store is open.
