    I usually do uni work 8am-4pm (either in uni or at home/friend's houses), and paid work 5pm-12am. Generally, I work during all of my free time, as I'm self-employed working from wherever I want so can find ways to relax WHILST I work (usually at my friends socialising and watching TV). If I have somewhere specific to go, I just take a day off, and my hours are flexible in case university gets too much, but that's an average week for me - I don't need any other free time because work and free time interconnect.
    Wow! I hope I can find work like yours!

    It is the best job ever. Can't imagine what I'd do if I lost it now; I'm very reliant on it.

    It does really all depend on the person. See how you get on before making any rash decisions. Ask your teachers how well you're performing and see what you can figure out it's being put down to. If it's lack of effort in class, then you're either tired, or it's not the job. If it seems to be lack of effort outside of class, bad coursework/homework etc, then I'd say cut the hours down.

    I was working around 8 hours a day on both Saturdays and Sundays. I've quit the job for my January exams (especially with the amount of resits I'm doing lol), and it#s amazing how much you appreciate the spare time (obviously, I'm spending mine on TSR this past couple of hours lol).

    Do you think it affects your school work or are you managing to keep up your grades?
    No it doesn't effect my work (well I'll find out in January exams) because its two school evenings- I just do my homework the night before and revise for things on different days and the third day, I wouldn't be doing school work at that time anyway!

    14 hours, 1 day.

    I have the killer shift at my brother's Domino's.

    Killer shift, ha!

    I used to work at Dominos as a driver, it was the easiest possible £18 an hour ever!


    I used to do 16 hour shifts at Sainburys.

    The only way I could get away with it was to constantly swtich departments.

    I did 6:30 - 10:30 - Petrol station
    10:30 - 18:30 - Restaurant
    18:30 - 22:30 - Petrol station.

    Used to love it.

    the worst thing about it is that I, not being trained at all, pretty much make boxes and get dough from the walk-in. a couple of saturdays I counted: more than 400 boxes.
    and, being a former employee, you'll know the monotony of it all. take box - fold box - put layer pad in the box - close box - put box on the pile. AH.

    Definitely don't try and work over 20 hours a week. I was doing 30+ for about 3 months in Year 12 (term-time), and goodness me, it was bloody hard work. It was a **** job as well, which makes it worse. I had no time for school work, and well, i didn't do great at the end of the year.

    I work 7 days a week, around 7 hours a day.
    You work hard. I work approximately the same.

    EDIT: Sorry, I thought this was about university work, not part-time work. Is 49 hours a week still classed as part-time? :eek:

    I've got induction on Monday and start officially on Tuesday. I will be doing four shifts a week (not sure what days) but it's from 6AM-10AM. Not sure about the pay either. It's for Dunelm. I'm 17. I also can do over-time if I want to do it. So, even though I haven't officially started to work for them, I think it's quite flexible. And I also like the hours. My first job too

    I do about the same amount of uni work, if not a bit more, during the days' then paid work in the evenings. Both my uni course and my job are considered full time, they just slot into different hours. I'm very lucky in that I don't need separate time to relax, and that I can just take a day off when things get too much, or delay by an hour if university's holding me back.
    I do internet research, to whoever asked; hence the laziness.I also have my own production company but that work takes up only a few hours a week at the moment, if that.
