Has this ever happened to you? You’re working a part-time job, and your boss wants you to have the availability of a full-time job. Or how about this one: Your boss complains about being understaffed, and when you ask for more hours, you don’t get them.
Working part-time sucks because your boss always wants way too much from you. They want you to treat this part-time gig like it is the launching pad for a great career when it’s usually just working at Chic-Fil-A. When you’re in high school especially, your bosses often want to schedule you like you’re a full-fledged adult, which is such a bad way to retain employees. No kid is going to be able to sustain working every day after school and during the weekends. One Home Depot store demanded that part-time workers be available to work from 6 AM to 10 PM, and people are questioning their expectations.
