Employee scheduling for stores is complicated and presents many challenges. Stores face peak hours, high seasons and a variety of job positions to schedule and shifts to cover. Store managers are usually given labor budgets (payroll dollars) that generally vary from week to week as sales fluctuate. Union and FLSA rules may place restrictions on work hours, overtime compensation, and the types of work schedules that can be implemented. Store managers must also consider time-off requests, labor rules, and personnel availabilities when developing schedules for full-time and part-time workers.
