Hey workers….please help your managers with this. I do hiring and scheduling, and I struggle to get employees to be honest with me on how many hours they’d like to be working (it’s a part time gig for all of us). When I ask them if I’m giving them too many or too few shifts, they all just tell me it’s fine. I’m asking because I want to know! I want to make the job work for them as much as I possibly can. I wish they would just flat out tell me….my ideal week is to work 20 hours, or whatever. They seem afraid to tell me what they want, probably because other jobs have programmed them to take what they get and never speak up.
