  •  It's more insidious than just being 'on call' (1+ / 0-)

    It's having your schedule 3 weeks in advance, and never knowing until you see it what your scheduled for.  So technically you could have another job if you were able to convince them to schedule you at their business around the hours wallyworld scheduled you for with that 3-week notice, (subject to change.)  Yeah, good luck with finding that perfect part-time job.  It's that practice that allows the PR at wallyworld to crow about all employees have a 'set' schedule without having to explain it's really next to useless anyway. It's especially hard to schedule babysitting on this basis too.
