    It's not about the number of hours. It's about what you learn/your ability to reflect on your experiences.

    Having said that, competitive courses like to see long-term commitment - not just xx number of hours.

    there aren't any set hours - talk to the store manager and ask to come in 1 or 2 hours a week

    I would advise you to try and be consistent with your hours if you can - aim to do a set minimum every week. That way you can safely say 'I averaged x amount of hours per week for x amount of time'. Like Clubba said, it's better to have done a small amount of hours over a long period of time rather than a large amount in the space of say 1 month.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
