    While you can reduce your hours a lot as an associate, for managers you have to work at least 30 hours to maintain full time status, and the most ridiculous recent change was for assistant managers. They have to work 45 hours on the nose. If you work more or less, you're punished. They were also reduced from salaried to hourly pay. If you don't work your hours, you don't get paid, so "flexibility" comes at a cost.

    If you really need to show up late or schedule time off, before scheduling, they are flexible.

    you have to ask 2 or more weeks in advance and don't find out if you have those days off until the new schedule is released

    Very easy to pick up hours, as well as have other people cover shifts or request days off if needed.

    For the most part they would work with me to schedule around my school and most events I had planned outside of work. Just make sure to talk directly with the scheduling manager to let them know of your availability.

    Completely unflexible, and reduce your hours if they don't like you.

    Depending on your management this can go either way, my cafe had very flexible schedules and others and tight and secure
