I am really not happy at the kids shoe store. There are many reasons why but here are a few.

In an 8 hour shift I only get a 10-15 minute break. That is enough time for me to run to the bathroom and perhaps quickly eat something.
The owner told me I could have every 3rd Sat or weekend off if I wanted but she has me scheduled for 8 Saturdays off in a row and then when I did request a Saturday off to take a first aid course she couldn't give it to me.

The reason is she has no employees to work. The store has 3 part time employees. Me, and 2 other ladies. One only works 3 days a week (Mon-Fri only) and the other works every other Tues, every other Thurs and every other Sun. That leaves me to work most evenings and every Saturday.

She is also quite mean. She doesn't know how to properly deal with an issue. She just yells at you.

I am not sleeping well due to this. The job is stressing me out so much I can't fall asleep. A part time job should not be like this.

So I am handing in my resignation tonight and I will give 2 weeks. In the mean time I am looking for something else until I can set up my daycare.
