Surely it's all dependant on who you work with and your own personality and how much you want to work? If you are willing to work hard and do the job and hours contracted/overtime...you can't complain about only having a 20 hour contract but then when extra hours are required for the needs of the business...you do get paid for them!

Shifts are 4hr blocks so theres no breaks, but you are expected to work longer
You can only clock out if the manager approves
New builds have staff working from 6am-11pm 7 days a week
If you lose your clocking in card will cost £5 and take 4 weeks to arrive, just take a photo and use the printout
All till voids require a manager so expect queues to build quickly
Staff are expected to act as security with no training given

I am contracted for 20 hours but do at least 39 hours a week (fill shift) and if there are a lot more cages of stock left you could be made do overtime on a Friday depending on how many hours you have done. Fill shift starts at 7am until the cages are cleared usually around 4pm to 4:30pm

Awful, minimum contracts of 20hrs, but if you are on a fill shift you're expected to stay until the work is done so you can do 40+ especially around Xmas. Don't expect any gratitude as it's your job
