Do you get set shifts (i.e. the same days and times every week) or are you able to work around other commitments and have different shifts each week

At our franchise it was random and definitely not based on contract hours. We were all contracted 6 hours but were working between 10-44

No, you usually get told the week before

Shifts works as u provide them

Depending on the terms you were hired for can impact this. Full time workers have more of a structured schedule whereas, part-time workers tend to have a slightly scattered shift calendar. If you're upfront with management about your availability when youre being interviewed it'll serve you well.

Regular nights

Not really but sometimes depending on team you might b able to do the odd set days

You're given a rota at the start of every week but if there is a certain date or time you cannot work, you have to inform the manager and they will help to make arrangements and find cover.

Not the same shifts every week. it started off with working the same days but then our store manager was off ill for 4 months

I complete my rotas myself, I always worked longer than I should, I'm a very proud manager and do try to have a work and life balance

8 hour rota'd shifts. The rotas are done 4 weeks in advance (depending on the punctuality of the manager).
Days off/ hours etc. are somewhat negotiable, providing there is adequate staffing levels to cover.
