    University
    I currently work at a supermarket, on a 12-hours a week contract.
    [Thursday evening and Saturday all day]

    I sometimes get roped into doing overtime; a few weeks ago, I worked 19 hours [Thursday afternoon/evening, Friday afternoon, Saturday all day] and the another week I worked 29 hours [Tuesday all day, Thursday afternoon/evening, Friday afternoon, Saturday all day].

    I get £6.21 an hour, paid on a four-weekly basis.

    I couldn't live without that extra money. My loan and grant leave very little after my rent - like £200 for a full term...

    Most of my friends at university work, either during term time or in the holidays, although there are some who don't and don't see the need as they get 'allowances' from their parents.

    School
    I worked 18 hours a week, all at weekends [extra during the holidays], for an electronics retailer.

    It was a bit hard-going, as I had to be in school Monday-Friday 8am-3pm [with an hours walk home]. A one stage, I had been in school/work every day for nearly three months and thus hadn't had a single free day. I got used to it though, but when I did get days off, I would be shattered.

    I was earning £5.35 an hour, being paid monthly.

    Last year I was working 20-25 hours a week and earning about £250 a fortnight on that.

    I'm in my 2nd year now, and because my time management sucks and with the extra workload this year, I currently work 10-15 hours a week (weekends only) which is about £150-£170 a fortnight.

    I work anything from 24 - 30 hours. I just started so I'm not sure if I'm on a proper pay cycle and I'm too scared to go ask for my payslip cause the cash office people are scary!! But...I get paid every two weeks and I got about £230 on my last pay.

    I work around 14 hours a week, although this depends on the time of the year. Usually I'll do 5 1/2 hours on Friday then 8 on Saturday. Get paid every 2 weeks and it's roughly £140-£150. I get more shifts over holidays and stuff too.

    Contracted for 13.5 hours a week although with overtime this last month I've done around 20-30 a week. Knackered, but thinking of the money

    How many days? And how much are you paid? And monthly or weekly?
    I work between 10 - 16 hours a week at a coffee shop, on Saturdays and Wednesdays (I go straight from my 9am-10.30am lesson at college to my 11am start at work, then often straight back up to the library when I finish ) I get paid £5.50 an hour, which is pretty good, and we get paid at the end of every month.

    I have 3 jobs, although 2 are voluntary.
    In my paid job I work 23 hours a week at £6/hour, though its really not busy so I have a lot of time to think my life through and plan what I have to do for my other jobs and uni work.
    I have about 10 hours/week at university but lots of reading to do.
    Absolutely no time to myself but it will be worth it! Need to save up for my unpaid placement year

    I work as a Christmas Sales assistant in GAME. Usually I'd work 5pm-9pm Tuesday and Wednesday, and then something like 10am-4pm Saturday or Sunday. But with Christmas coming up, I'm working a lot more hours. For example, I'm working 4/5 hours Boxing Day, 4/5 hours 27th December, 4/5 hours 28th December, 4/5 hours 29h December...
    15 hours of lessons a week, so that's not too bad.
    £5.93 per hour, and triple pay on Boxing Day :cool:
    Get paid fortnightly in arrears.

    I had the best job ever. For me anyway:
    Free cooked breakfast & Lunch
    12 hour shift saturday
    12 hour shift sunday
    6.50 per hour.
    around 640-750 per month
    Sat & watched tv. Had access to internet and was on that most of the day.
    Did school work too...although often i was too tired from waking up at 5:30am...especially if they ****ed up staffing upstairs and i'd go upstairs after and do another 2 hours.

    Max i worked one week was about 35 - 9 of them was stewarding, 24, hall porter doing **** all.

    Had to walk around the building once every 4 hours to check security.

    I've got two jobs at the moment ha but that's only because I work at my uni and I needed a job during xmas holidays when the term was over. I'm roughly working 12.5-16 hrs a week and commuting which is hassle, but at the moment I'm finding it pretty hard because my workload is pretty insane! I shouldn't really be on tsr haha
