    I'm starting my temp job technically tomorrow, but I have NO idea on what my hours would even be like. Its a small shop in a mall, so I wouldn't be working daily, but it is a gift sort of shop, which raises in popularity over the holidays for kids and families, so they're hiring a few temps.

    Does anyone have experiences in temp work hours around this time of year?

    As it comes up towards Christmas, you'll probably get offered a decent amount more hours. Last Christmas, my contract was 16 hours and I was working a couple of hours under full time most weeks

    I agree.
    If you have any specific questions, it might also be wise to ask the employer, as they will have specific answers, with every company being different and all that.
