I live 35 to 40 min away from work, only get four hours at a time, and really only once a week. I'm lucky to get two days. It's annoying because I know it's not entirely my manager's fault. I've seen the chart that Home Office sent with the allotted hours.
However, I have told him I need at least six hours to make the trip worthwhile for me. It hasn't happened yet.
One of my other pet peeves is that I do not get my schedule until at least 5:00 on Saturday, and my week starts on Sunday. So I never know what time I am working. (It's usually the same days though, because I actually have another job that's not retail during the week, but it's only part time with VERY minimal hours as well. Whole other story.)
This makes it difficult because I can't drive. It sucks having to tell my husband at the last minute, "Oh yeah I work tomorrow!" Because he works too and it's hard to get another ride if I need it. There is no public transit from where I live to where I go.
I've been debating with myself, because really I need both jobs. I need all the money I can get right now, and I am supposed to go on maternity leave at the end of May. So I don't know if it's worth just quitting now, or waiting or what? I've been there for five years now. It's tough.
