    is he talking about management, or union hourly?

    P/T sups take all kinds of smoke breaks whenever they want. Theres one that takes about 10 a night (no exaggeration)

    Quit now, smoking that is, while you can. I put them down 6 months ago, smoked for 30 years, 2 packs a day.

    It's not smart to put something in your mouth that's on FIRE.

    Smoke breaks? Hell no! We would get grief from our sup if we had to take a leak, as "we should have done that before work, on our own time!"

    Felt like I was dealing with my dad when I was a kid on a long road-trip.

    yes you do get a 10 min break during your part time shift. There is a designated place to smoke. Ask your trainer where it is.

    What always :censored2: me off is that smokers get breaks but people who dont smoke cant get a break for nothing. Sometimes I think I should just bum a cig off someone and say i smoke and just go outside and sit on my ass.

    For our PTers the 10 minute break begins at the end of your shift. Apparently smokers get to take a 20 minute break and management doesn't care but if mine lasts 11 minutes I get blasted for it.

    People smoke on the 10 minute break we get after like 2 hours into the shift.
