  •  So true about Big Box stores, as I have a friend (2+ / 0-)

    who works in one, my husband also works in a big box store. In both cases, the only reason both are working fulltime with good benefits and like 3 weeks vacation is that they have been there over 10 yrs now.  They both told me their stores no longer hire any fulltime employees. They only hire part time or seasonal workers. And just a few years, these big box stores were looking for fulltime workers. That is no longer the case.

    Both my friend and my husband who work at 2 different big box stores said their managers are asking for volunteers to work fewer hours, take an extra unpaid day per week. They  do not want to lay off workers but they want fulltimers to just cut down their hours here and there.

    Both my friend and husband said..thanks but no thanks, we cannot afford to lose hours.
