It really all depends. As it is classed as flexible hours they can change your shifts 48 hours ahead of time. Sometimes depending you can do an open-close shift. Or a normal am or pm shift. It is all down to your contract.

Your shifts get moved and changed at the last minute and they very rarely allow to drop a shift and if you do you will receive a huge bollocking

TGI's will always try to stick to your contracted hours, but because shifts are so flexible they can change very quickly. You can request to work days or request days off. You can also drop shifts on the Hotschedules app (where our shifts are posted) if you can not work that day and another person can pick it up.
You have to be prepared for unsociable hours and working weekends, but management will work around days you can't work. For example another job, education, hobbies, religious reasons etc.

Working hours are fairly reasonable however as a serving assistant because it is such a gruelling job, SA's are found doing extra long hours to cover those who choose to quit shortly after applying.
