    I work 10 hours a week at L.K.Bennett (very nice ladies clothes/shoe shop), I do 4 hours on a Wednesday and 6 hours on a Sunday. Completely manageable with my uni workload as a third year student. I worked 22 hours one week about a month ago though and it was horrific. I certainly couldn't manage with more than 12 hours a week this year.
    I get £6.75 an hour plus 1% commission on what I sell(shoes are approx £200, boots are around £250-£400, bags £250-£350, dresses around £250 to give you a rough idea).
    So I normally come out with £270 plus around £80 in commission.

    I have 21 hours a week at college and then I work 10 hours at the hospital as a Ward Clerk (admin). Originally, I was on 18.75/week when I started the job over the summer, but when September hit I found that I was going a bit crazy and stressed out over the lack of me-time.

    When I worked 18.75 hours I got roughly £500 a month after my national insurance and pension deduction. I then went down to about £300 when I reduced my hours. However, I now work 10 hours over the weekend instead of working weekday evenings which makes me roughly the same amount as when I worked 18.75 hours due to 'unsociable hours' work pay. I love the NHS!

    12 hours a week, usually in 3 x 4 hour shifts. £6.25 an hour, paid monthly. Pay and a half on Sundays.
    Pretty easy going really when you look at it like that! But believe me, it sure as hell doesn't feel like it.

    Do you find you're not left with much time for yourself?
    I'm doing a-levels, 36 hours a week plus 10 hours travel time a week and loads of homework and I don't know if I can handle a job atm so I was just wondering. Come the weekend, I'm exhausted and I don't know if I'd have the motivation to work. How do you all find it? Hardly anyone at my school has a proper job...

    In sixth form I worked 12 hours per week for £6.12/hr. Now I don't work during term time, but in the holidays I do night shifts (~40 hours per week at £8.27/hr).

    I work as a language tutor for a company here in Paris. I currently work 5-8pm Tuesday and Wednesday, and I get 10€ an hour. So I'm getting 60€ a week but it obviously changes monthly due to me coming home for holidays/exams etc.
    ETA: I only have 12 hours a week at uni but have constant essays to be writing and books to be reading. The workload here is ridiculous and I'm thinking I will have to leave this job as with travelling time it's just too much, as Tuesdays and Wednesdays are full days for me aka 9-9 not including time to eat etc

    Personally i don't mind it. it's ridiculous because my job is a minimum wage slave type job, but i absolutely love it there. my team are amazing, & we all have fun. There are days when i really do not want to get out of bed, and some friday nights when i want to go out and not have to worry about surviving a 12 hour shift the next day but at the end of the day, i HAVE to work. i don't really have a choice, my student loan is not nearly enough. If i dont work the rent doesnt get paid and i don't eat, though the extra money to spend on yourself is always nice too!
    find a job you like, or put it off as long as humanely possible.
