They are not flexible at all. The norm is the job is 40 hours a week for pay, they other 10 hours a week you work to get the job done, you dont get paid for. They do it by saying "overtime is not approved", but the amount the expect cannot be done in 40 hours. Especially when they call and email you after hours.
Hours start out very flexible. Then people quit. Turn over is hoghbdue to how badly employees are treated. Then hours are no longer flexible and they dont care about your availability.
0 to 18 hours average per week is not what I would call reduced hours those are normal schedule for me,
If you needed time off just give your boss a heads up but it's not likely that you'd get those missing hours back.
One of the few pro's to working in this position
You cannot get enough hours to get by on. You need another job to make a living which is hard to do because of the schedule you have to work.
You don't have to ask for reduced hours, they just reduce your hours.
Flexibility with hours good, Work hours fluctuate
when hired you are told "up to 25 hours" per week, however I struggle to get 10-15,hours a week, and they are five hour days.
You cannot make a living off this part time job alone, you have to pay out of pocket for gas, ink, paper, car maintenance, which you cannot write off due to low annual income.
