    I got offered a job of doing 2 nights a week as a night receptionist, from 11pm to 7 am
    Should I take it? It requires me to be flexible for example I'll have to agree what days I have to come in with the other receptionists.
    I'm scared it might smoke my sleeping pattern and when uni starts in september, I won't be as flexible, also the contract is minimum 1 year.

    How will you deal with uni if you come back from a lecture, and are working throughout the night? I know its for 2 days, so I`d suggest either trying to get into a pattern now that fits with the job, or ask them for an idea of the hours. If you let them know you`re going uni, they should be able to tell you when they`ll require you to be in so you can change your sleeping pattern in accordance to that

    I told them I go back to uni in september, they said that was fine as its only 2 nights but on some weeks like holidays they might require me to work more nights, and the specific days are not exact as you work things out with the other receptionists, the other guy wants 2 nights off on a friday and saturday, I wonder why.
