So my BF just started working part time (10 hour contract) in a retail job.

When he took this job he thought he would only be 2, maybe 3 days at the most, a week.

However he is working almost every day, with his weekly rota being made up only the week before so the days and hours are never the same each week.

This is making it really difficult for him to make plans and is now the amount of hours he works is conflicting with other important things.

He loves this job in retail but is getting totally burnt out and is having to give up things he loves to work.

I really need advice on his for him. What can he do? they seem to be really short staffed so he is worried of getting fired for asking for less hours

Help please!

Hi,

I guess a couple of questions to consider is...
Is he happy with the amount of hours he is working?
Does he want to ask the manager for less hours or advanced notice on when he will be working?

I think he needs to speak to his manager about the amount of hours he is doing. Generally I find companies expect you to do a bit of overtime and it has to be agreed by both you and the manager first, so what your bf is having to deal with is ridiculous.
