I'm a cashier. We just got a new manager, and she's making things really hard for us. She starts work at 4:30am and leaves around 2:30pm, but she still expects us to stay until 6pm and work on the weekends! She gives us really long shifts and doesn't give us much time for breaks. And when we ask her about it, she gets mad.

I'm worried that if I speak up, she'll make my life even harder. I don't want to lose my job because of this—do you guys have any advice?

Those are long hours. Is this a big box chain?

Do you start work at 4:30 as well, or she comes in before you? What are your shift hours. And legally, depending on where you are located you are required to take a certain amount of breaks. I'm assuming this isn't a big box chain, since just one manager has so much power. Is it a smaller business?

State laws differ but as long as you're being paid for every minute you work, there's very little that can be done in a right to work state. I would research the specific labor laws (federal and state) and see what she may be violating.

Technically like everyone else is saying you are required to take breaks. It does depend on the job. I know I work several jobs. I have to take my breaks in between customers. I cannot stay away from the desk for so long due to being the only person. I've only seen breaks given when you are working with other people. These are usually big business.

Why does GNC provide their products at Walmart cheaper than in their own store? I sold a product to a guy who comes in later to return it because it was $15 cheaper at Walmart. Customers don’t go to corporate GNC when this happens, they go to the retail associates working the counter. I feel that this damages my reputation as a salesman when it’s really not my fault.

Sales assistant at a drug/grocery store. The manager thinks my coworker does great work but I've seen her putting out new products without rotating stock (so the oldest food will be sold first) and we are always supposed to check the dates when shelving new things. The problem is, I don't really get along with this coworker and I think it's noticeable to management. If I bring this up with our supervisor, are people going to think that I'm just trying to sabotage my coworker so that I will look better than her?
