Majority of the time if you cannot attend a shift you can swap with another staff member, but not always!
As a part time member of staff you can give a specific availability and book off any time you like. Once you are full time, the company do not care for your social life even when attempting to book different days off. Personally had to quit semi-pro football as company refused to help arrange my work days.
0 hours so you can work with your schedule
If you tell them a week in advance or even a couple of days in advance, you can get time off. But it is ideal to book it off well in advance because sometimes too many people want the same day off- but that is very rarely.
Really good with students for flexible working if you needed to go home for Christmas etc.
Flexible to an extent but if you say no to shifts you are not asked back for as many shifts that you would want. Popularity contest..
Very flexible if you are at college etc
