    hi basically im a student at college and my timetable is pretty heavy (maths, biology, chemistry and economics), i need time to do plenty of work as i want A's hopefully

    I really only want to work one day a week (sat or sun) is this possible and do you think it will put alot of employers off?

    can anyone give me websites where i can apply online?

    im not sure if most places would want you to work one day a week because they usually have a set minimum number of hours for you to work in a week ranging from 8-16 hours. But i think thats only for big companies. Ask around at small shops or restaurants, they might have some as ive seen my friend get a saturday job at a restaurant

    I work at WH Smith - Sunday only. My job is just to change the charts every week, and to work the entertainment desk. I just went in and asked if there was a weekend job available and they said they needed somebody to work Saturday or Sunday or both.

    I know asda are supposed to have a minimum of 12 hours a week but i have only ever worked a 6 hour shift on a sunday i think it depends on the store but there also pretty good at giving me unpaid leave or doing shift swaps if your needing more time to study or something

    You need to go into your local store and ask for an application form, but usually they don't have any and will ask you to send them a CV/Cover Letter and they mail you back in the post an application form.

    I'd take a CV/Cover Letter in an envelope ready if you go in and ask for an app form when they say "we don't have any, bla bla" .. :p:
