Good - you choose when you work Bad - since it's a zero hours contract you could end up with no work for weeks
You can choose your hours two weeks prior to schedule being made
Best: Able to get last minute shift covers Worst: Usually given few shifts unless your availability is open for everyday and for any time
Can take any days off if it's been requested on the online system 2 weeks in advance. You don't have to work a minimum number of hours per week. As the company gets a set number of hours per week if it's not busy you're not likely to get any/very few hours.
You can fit working around college or university
they are very understanding with there flexible working.
sometimes you have call in shifts where you have to call in an hour before to see if they need you to work.
Sometimes shifts were not available as a result of everyone increasing their availability or the employees that befriend the managers getting the best shifts. Also good when you do not want to work and shifts can be covered quite easily
you can trade your shifts with people
The flexible hours means you don't have to work if you don't want to. You can choose how available you are every week.
