So, I applied for a job, interviewed and got the job. Today was my first day of training.
When I interviewed I told him for one thing that I'm pregnant so I can't lift much, that I CANNOT work saturdays but I can work ANY other day, and that I wanted at least 30 hours a week. They told me it was not a problem for any of that.
So I go for my first day and they have me scheduled for only an hour and a half, that's fine..it's just training. But then they try to make me lift all this heavy stuff...and I'm like "sorry I can't, I told you that when I interviewed." Then I check my schedule. They don't have me working again until FRIDAY. and the only other day is SATURDAY. So 15 hours, not 30, trying to get me to lift stuff AND scheduled on the ONLY day I told them I could not work.
I don't know if it's just the pregnancy hormones or what but I'm soooo mad. Should I be? Should I call and ask for a schedule change?

See what the next schedule says for next week and if you don't have 30 hours then i would say something. I would say something about being on for Saturday and remind them that you are not available and that you told them that on the interview. Could it be that you can work 30 hours a week or is it a part-time job cause my job is like that for the part-time employees they can get up to 28 hours and none of them do they vary between 15-25 hours a week. I think that you need to speak with someone cause if you want to be working 30 hours a week and it can very then they need to tell you that, they should have told you that in the interview. Ask them if your hours are gonna very from week to week and if so and that's not what you want then i would be looking for something different.

If it's retail, you shouldn't be so surprised.
