There is a job opening for a partime associate for 19.52$ per hour.
1.) $19.52 . No company pays that much even if workers should earn that much. Its probably a lie and the HR will say something like you may earn up to that and offer minimum wage.
2.) They are probably short staff because management sucks. They are looking for employees who will be on call working part time. That means, no benefits but working like a salary employee where they can terminate your employment if you can’t make a shift.
3.) Nepotist management. The reason they are looking for employees like that is because the managers they hired probably don’t know what they are doing. The lead and supervisor depend on managment training to efficiently plan and execute the operations of a grocery store. Who ever is in charge, probably was put there by their friends.
This is how most businesses work. Scalability and then nepotism.
