Too flexible. Only got 4 hours a week maximum offered to me throughout my 0 hour contract and some weeks as little as 3 hours.
They were very accomodating about days off when urgently needed. They are kind and flexible, probably more so than other retail companies. Could be because they have loads of employees.
just write in the availability book when you can work 2 weeks in the future and they only give you shifts during that time. When you clock in it tells you if you are working less than 12 hours in the next week and they prefer for you to work more than that but if you talk to your manager they should just give you however many hours you want and if the store has hours to spare then you may get a text or call to ask if you can work anymore which allows you to earn more money.
If you told them in advance that you would not be able to work on a particular day then they would sort this out for you
Very flexible. I can tell them when I want time off about a week before. Christmas time is different for obvious reasons.
Hours are decided 2 weeks in advance. However, they would then change it without notice and blame the employee for a no-show.
If you have a good manager then the flexibility can't be criticised. As a zero-hour contract worker, it's naturally one of the benefits of the job that you can take whatever days off you need to take. The downside is the managers are very fussy for last-minute changes if you need them, which to an extent is understandable, but they have to understand your issues sometimes as well.
good for people and young people who has no major responsibility such as kids or supporting themselves.
Allows you to work around your school and personal life.
Majority of the time if you cannot attend a shift you can swap with another staff member, but not always!
