    You’ll be contracted to 37.5 hours a week. If you’re an engineer, that’s usually four or five days a week between Monday and Sunday. And once you’ve got some experience under your belt, there should be opportunities for overtime.

  • You will work long hours and not get paid for them . Expected to give 2 hours travel each day for no pay . Also expected to stay on after finish time which goes on flex rather than overtime .
    Cheap labour avoid.

  • 47.5 hrs if you include the 1hr commitment time at start and finish of shift

  • It will be 37.5 plus you will have to give 1 hour travel at the start and end of day in your own time on a 5 day week in reality that’s 47.5hrs ! 😉

  • 36 hours but realistically can be more depending on work load

  • If you work hard you can finish early depending on your line manager

  • 37.5 per week (often more to be unofficially claimed back)

  • You can get jobs which become long due to faults which mean that you never have a set finish time. You will get payed over time after you do a certain amount of extra hours.
