62 answers

  • Zero Hour Contract

  • No shifts are the same, you will WILL, be made to stay behind for maybe 5 mins to half an hour on some shifts. Very stressful! Hard to make plans with anyone.

    No matter what, you get a 45 min break every day, but this may be given to you after working below an hour during say an eight hour shift. Sometimes it's given at a good time though.

  • Depending on how long your shift was you'd either get a 30 minute break or a 45 minute break.

  • Between 4 to 9 hours each shift. If it is low hours, the break is 15 to 20 mins long. If it is a long shift, the break is about 30 to 45 mins long.

  • Shift patterns vary
    Break is 45 mins with a free meal.

  • Continental shifts with 45 minute breaks.

  • You get the same hour shifts but at different starts, the breaks are a reasonable amount of time for you to eat and have enough time after to do what you need to do before clocking in again.

  • 8 hours every weekend

  • Shifts are unpredictable, on long shifts you get 45 minute breaks.

  • You get a 45 minute break. Generally there is a lot of overtime every shift. My shift patterns were very different all the time.
