Industrial Painter .com will try when possible to arrange work schedules that are convenient to the employee's and to the company. However, you must realize that the company's needs, not the employee's desires must come first in deciding what work schedules will be posted.
Discuss both days and hours available with your immediate supervisor. The supervisor must have a clear definition of your needs to best develop a schedule that works for you.

The company reserves the right to adjust schedules to the needs of the projects.
4.5 Scheduling Criteria
Industrial Painter .com, believes in scheduling its most productive, loyal, dedicated and cooperative employees first.

Ability and willingness to work less popular shifts is also important. When possible, we generally try to balance out the available hours among employees. Seniority is somewhat of a secondary consideration. If it is difficult to differentiate different levels of performance, then seniority would play more of a role. Overall, if you are looking for more hours, the best course of action for you to take is to put a little extra effort into your job performance. Overtime, this extra effort will be noticed.
