4 jobs is way too many to coordinate.  Can you pick 2 to give you the hours you need? While this situation sucks, sometimes with shift work you unfortunately can’t dixtate the schedules perfectly. 

 

However if you want them all, then I’d quit this one or threaten to. You gave your availability and she isn’t respecting it,so move on

Quit. 4 jobs is not a long term feasible plan.

You have to decide which jobs provide you the greatest benefit and then quit the ones that conflict.  Are these all part-time jobs?  Are they all retail?  My mother worked 4 jobs for years (one full-time and three part-time).  It can work, but it generally works with non-retail/service jobs where the company has well-defined shifts you are hired for a specific shift and that is it – no rotating shifts or shifts based on need, which is what things like retail and restaurants tend to be.  For example an 8-4 office or healthcare day job, 5-9 evening call center job and then a weekend day and weekend evening job.  She eventually quit her evening job when the entire company changed their shift hours and it conflicted with her full-time job.

pumpkinwaffle :  that is still so many though and so hard to coordinate. A lady I know works 2 full time jobs, probably 60-70 hours a week or more, one at the grocery store I frequent and one at the target across the street. Both jobs know and both are ok, and have set hours. Why not something like that instead?

Honestly, I would try to find two jobs that are willing to coordinate and make up for the hours/pay. Asking an employer to be flexible with your working hours of not one but THREE other jobs is a little ridiculous. I understand wanting to work to save but working four different jobs is probably not the best way to go about it.

It doesnt matter how many jobs you have – you gave your availability, they agreed to work with you and are now breaking that. I would absolutely follow up. I would first try speaking with the manager and letting them know again that you gave your availability and arent able to work those nights. Then follow up with the DM and let them deal with it.

Honestly bee since they violated an agreement you made they are not trustworthy and you’re wasting your time with them at this point.

It sounds like no one wants to actually work there based on how many people are quitting. You wanted to quit anyway. Tell them you are only available to work days, which is what they agreed to, and if they require you to work nights then you’ll have to quit your position because nights are not an option. Period.
