This is the original problem from an employee...
I'm currently working my first job (Local business, under 20 employees at this branch). I started here a year ago. With no previous employment experience, I was hired on as a part-time assistant field technician, making 8/hr (minimum wage + change), with no benefits. I did however, get a Christmas bonus, thankfully. I work 4 hours, 11-4 generally and expected to work beyond that, as the need requires(I get overtime); meaning it's harder to find a job. Slightly more than a year later, I still have the same wage, and hours. I now work in 3 departments: (Still) Assistant Field Technician, IT Consulting/Support (Tier 1 & 2), and Marketing (Social Media Division). Still no benefits, probably because i'm classified as part-time.

Am I being taken advantage of? I tried asking for a normal 9-to-5 day, but my supervisor keeps going back to my part-time schedule after about a week (this happened twice), when I'm free all day. Should I ask for a raise soon? I don't mind working there. I'd like to work there as long as I can before I ship off, but I feel i'm not quite getting what I think I deserve.

This happens all the time. Find better if you can, otherwise, just suck it up. Talk to them about going full time and getting benefits... it probably won't work though, but who knows!
