    I just applied for a retail assistant job in Primark at the Tottenham Court Road branch and I noticed on the job advert it says that the working hours are: Fully Flexible Fri-Sat-Sun-Mon various 20 hour shifts from 13:00 - 22:00.

    What does it mean? I was under the impression that Primark only either offer you a weekday contract or a weekend contract? The advert stating the working days seems to suggest that whoever gets the job will have to work on a Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. I thought they either let you work on weekdays or on a weekend, that they don't allow you to do a mixture of working a few days during the weekdays and then work on a Saturday or a Sunday. And what do they mean by Fully Flexible? I thought the hours are fixed like many people on the forum have said. Have they now changed how they run employee shifts?

    Best people to ask are primark
    It clearly states flexibility of hours over Friday to Monday and that it’s a 20 hour position. This probably means they will vary your hours over the four days. It’s for their benefit not yours
    If you want weekends only they’re unlikely to let you do two 10 hour shifts. Especially since the law does not permit more than 8 hours for under 18s

    Fully flexible means you have to be available to work overtime. I used to work at Primark on weekend contract and they had always asked me to work extra hours to meet the demands of the business.
    Most employers nowadays expect that now though so that is what you should expect.
