PacSun / bad working experience

1 Cincinnati, OH, United States Review updated:

I was hired at the Cincinnati location in the Kenwood Mall on April 30, 2015. Three days prior to that is when I turned in my application. The manager did a quick review while I was there, and asked what I was looking for. I said a summer job that would carry over into the fall with a minimum of 15 hours a week and a max of 30 hours a week. After I was hired three days later I was told to expect an email. I waited one week, and it never came. I called, and they said they would fix it for me. It never came. I waited another week, and called back. Finally, they were able to send it. They scheduled me to come in three days later for orientation. I came in. It lasted an hour and a half, and I never got paid from it. I was constantly on call. Never once was I needed to come in. Finally, after being hired for over a month I got a four hour shift. I explained I've never worked retail, and the orientation was just about theft and a run down of the store. The manager gave me barely any tips, but kept coming up to me saying I had to do well because at the end of the summer they would have to cut people. I was told this was not seasonal in the beginning, and I had no clue what to do, to be doing well. The next week I had a 3 hour shift. Right before I left my house, I got a call saying they did not need me. The whole next week I had 0 hours or on calls. I finally put my two weeks in. In two months of being hired I worked a total of 4 hours, and was also never paid for my 1.5 hour orientation. I feel like I was only hired as an extreme back up. I had to constantly ask my father for help to pay rent because I was literally getting zero hours. I think the managers here are very disrespectful, and this was unprofessional to hire me and give me nothing.

    Perhaps they did not need you because you were not doing a good job. You yourself admitted you did not know what you were supposed to do.
