The original post has been deleted. I am updating it - totally re-writing it. Are all part-time jobs this way, or for this reason? I have had a part-time job for almost a year now. Recently I figured out one of the reasons I am there is so the full-timers don't have to work over-time and get over-time pay. Recently, I was told no one ever gets over-time pay in this business. But there is a problem. Somehow the full-timers get to goof-off, not just a little, but a lot! What they don't get done I do. While I was basically hired for about 24 hours a week, often times I work many more sometimes up to 30 hours. Often times the supervisor tells me to do a job that a full-timer would do if he or she wasn't goofing off! I don't get it. One full-timer boasted, laughing to another, "It's an 8 hour job, but there's only 2 hours of work to do!" Yet these same full-timers will often say they can't do this or that because they don't have time to do it. I am literally running and sweating to get my regular routine done and the extra work that the full-timers don't do. During an eight hour shift, I don't get time to take the break that I am supposed to take. I am a minority, 67 years old and I am so surprised. I have heard that most companies no longer hire full-time workers. Is this the way it is all over the place now days?
