ETL Completely disregarding my availability change.
I’ve been working at Target (full time) for almost 2 months, and I’m starting school soon. The beginning of this month I gave TSC my school schedule and I changed my availability online. I requested to work 3 days a week, 20 hours maximum. And I am available anytime on Saturdays and Sundays, pretty lenient right? I even spoke to the ETL who makes the schedule a couple of times explaining to him my situation, and he seemed to be sympathetic and understanding of my wishes telling me it was no problem. So today, I look at the Week 3 schedule to see that they have me working 30 HOURS, 4 DAYS A WEEK. Clearly not what I said my availability was, and there’s no way I can work that much being that it’s my freshman year of college and school is my main priority. I spoke to one of my co-workers today about it, and he told me they disregard his availability requests (since he works 2 jobs) pretty much all the time, and has been at Target for 7 YEARS. I am super angry, and I am going to talk to the ETL about this the next time I see him. If I don’t see a change, I’m leaving this fucking company.
