Is there more shifts available/overtime if i need extra money?

10 answers

  • Often - it is a hit or a miss. Overtime is not usually available at the end of the tax year or when the company is saving money. However, during summer and Christmastime there is usually plenty.

  • Always overtime when the busier periods for retail start

  • Possibly, there should be overtime available if it is needed

  • Overtime is given to employees weeks in advance and put onto rotas like normal contracted hours. This means staff can work many hours (An actual example 6 contracted- 30 worked) but not accumulate hardly any holiday pay.

  • Yes especially at peak times.

  • Related questions (more answers below):

  • At times if they were at panic stations which was frequent

  • Yes there is often overtime available

  • Yes when budgets are not cut.

  • No, I was never till trained and therefore was never offered any over time.

  • Dependant on your manager.

    Some months they would give you full time and the next month they would have no budget to cover hours so no overtime available
