Retail workers: are there any staff shortages where you work? Our store is 5 people short so we are all having to work overtime to make sure shifts are covered. It's exhausting.

Retail workers are often overworked and underpaid. The staff shortages that you are experiencing are just another example of this. It is exhausting to have to work overtime to cover shifts, but at least you are all able to make sure that the store is covered. Hopefully, the staff shortages will be resolved soon and everyone can get some much needed relief.

Right now, we have enough personnel, but every once in a while, we have an outage and work overtime. I think it is something common in the industry. In a while, it will be solved and then later on it will happen again.

We are way understaffed and the boss refuses to pay overtime. It's often just one of us on the floor when it used to be 3.

Staffing currently isn’t the issue, the labor we are able to use is. Even though I have the personnel needed, we are not given the hours to give out. Myself and other salary employees are working 60-70hpw and my full time hourly associates are working 25-30hpw.

We’re in negotiations to buy a house. Seller has agreed to all our terms except price. The guy has finally acknowledged he’s going to lose money on the sale from when he bought it. We originally offered 10% below the already reduced price with the house having sat on the market for almost three months. Seller countered with 2.2% below asking and accepting all other terms. Our max is 7.5% below asking. Not sure what our next move should be.

Hi, how much do food and beverage supervisor make in Australia?

I love working at the bookstore and I'm proud to work with such a large group of people from different backgrounds. I'm really happy we're all here. But it probably isn't the best idea to get someone to reshelve books when they haven't been taught how to categorize them properly. It's like I spend most of the day following one of my coworkers around and discreetly fixing what he works on. He's a great guy, very personable, but wow is it frustrating.
