    Upon reading a job description, I came across this term:

    Fully Flexible rota basis (Monday-Friday 8am-8pm and Saturday-Sunday 9am-6pm)

    What does this mean? Although I am aware of the term flexible, Will I be working 7 days per week? Can I choose 8am - 4pm if it fits my schedule?

    No, you won't be working 78 hours per week. That's crazy.
    No doubt they'll assign you shifts within those time frames.
    So you might work 8-4 Monday to Friday one week and then another week do 10-6 Monday to Wednesday then 12-8 Saturday and Sunday.
