    So, I got a part time job at wilkos
    When I applied for the job, it said 7 hours a week
    They are making me work more than this and they said I'm contracted to weekends which I'm okay with.
    I didn't sign a contract or anything, should I have?

    Yeah you should have signed one.
    I'd query it and see why you've not had one!
    Did you sign up for any overtime?
    I assume not from what you've said there!
    But yeah you do have to sign one usually!

    Unfortunately I haven't
    I feel like they are using me for extra hours
    I don't even know what my overtime is unfortunately
    I'll query with this tomorrow
    Thank you
    I thought working for a big company such as wilko, they should be more professional but I guess that's not the case for me

    That sucks then!
    Yeah it seems that way, although tbh I was used for extra hours with one tbh!
    Ah fair enough!
    Good good!
    No worries!
    Well I worked for a leading supermarket chain before (can't say which) and it was awful! The staff were treated like **** (well I was anyway) and everything was just a shambles 24/7
    Left me with severe mental illnesses! :/
    So they may look good, but in reality, shop work isn't very good from the inside!

    Yeah, they usually have you sign one before you start working. Definitely request to see your contract, and ask about signing it. Your contracted hours are basically what you sign to do, and the rest is overtime. In retail, it's to be expected that you'll work more than your contracted hours unless you state otherwise in interview. Usually they'll ask about availability and they'll go from there. Every part time contract at HMV when I worked there was 16 hours, but that was just standard. We all worked between 25 and 35+ hours a week
