With regards to jobs, how flexible are they? Are you allowed to work what days, hours that suit you or are they dictated for you?
the hours i get are dictated to me (i'm working as a waiter for corporate events) but i get a lot a free time and make decent cash even though sometimes i have to do a 13hour shift which is a killer.
oh and i can't turn down a job if i can't take it but i need to give 48-hours notices
I managed to get a job within my college, so they were pretty understanding with what hours I could work.
I recently got a job with M&S and they have different contracts and each contract had different hours to work, so i had the option if i wanted to to look at them all and see what hours would be needed for which jobs but i didnt bother. But not they are set and i can't change them
depends on the job and the contract. i'm contracted to work 7.5 hours a week atm, so if i can't make my saturday shift then i have to do time in lieu or take it as holiday. at my last job i could take holiday whenever i liked, but my hours were dictated by what my employers needed. that said, i know lots of people who can pretty much work whenever they want to - it depends on who is employing you and what they contract you to do.
