Yeah i know but i just enjoy working. But can you explain why'd it be stressful? Whats the difference of working 4 days at one job vs working 4 different jobs. It's all part time and not long-term

Just seems like too much energy, I won’t lie. It’s like saying you are going to date 4 different girls.

Those 4 different girls will have their own personalities, lifestyles, etc. keeping up with that seems like effort, I can’t lie.

Why don’t you do a job where you rotate to different places ie 6 months in one place before moving on

I’d imagine organising annual leave for 4 jobs would be a nightmare

What happens when you want to use annual leave? Trying to organise getting time off for each job at the same time would be a logistical nightmare.

I can’t imagine why someone would want to do this to themselves.

And what if 2 or 3 different jobs want you in on the same day? A 0 hours contract means you don't have to accept the work, but it's probably a good way to lose all your jobs if you mess them around too much.

If you have spare time, why not look at volunteering? It's good experience, you could do it at more than one place and they are usually flexible on hours.

If you can find multiple jobs which all want you for a small number of hours per week and which you can organise so they don't all want you at the same time, I don't see why not. There are lots of people who advertise themselves as being able to do a wide variety of basic DIY and home and garden related stuff, so they could be mowing a lawn in the morning, painting a door in the early afternoon, walking a dog in the late afternoon, cleaning an office in the evening, all for different people...

Annual leave is essentially paid holiday which you accrue as you work. The more you work, the more annual leave you accrue. I've taken AL today so I'm not in work but I'm still getting paid my base salary. Zero hour jobs are notoriously unprofessional but the majority of full and part time roles at established companies will have proper HR and payroll teams who are responsible for making sure everyone is paid correctly and on time.

Yep, you think every job will honestly not care if you turn up in a morning or not? Surely not? How do you expect work places to function like that- there'd be nobody in on a Monday or Friday/weekend! If I didn't turn up for my shift with no notice or phone call I'd be in a disciplinary that week.

I have once not turned up with no notice or phonecall - I'd made a mistake booking my leave and I'd booked a day less than I thought I had. I don't have the sort of job where anyone else would have been impacted by it (I'm a computer programmer) - I could have booked it up to and including the same morning.

Manager was at my desk at 9:01 the following morning. There weren't any consequences beyond that, probably because it was so obviously a mistake which I was horrified and completely unaware that I'd made.

This is possible.
Dependent upon your job role, shifts, health, studies, other commitments and whether you are willing to work weekends or antisocial hours.

I have been working more than 3 jobs a week whilst studying for many years.
I wouldn't recommend anyone accepting more than 28 weekly hours or working above 2 part time jobs a week with regular shifts while a full time student.
Good luck!
