Why this matters

Most people work the same number of hours they’re contracted for

Good
40% of people report working 8 hours or more than they’re contracted for each week

Based on information from 5 job reviews

Why this matters

At a good job, you should expect to work about the same number of hours that your contract guarantees you, most of the time.

It’s useful to pick up or drop a few shifts here and there, but if you often work a lot more hours every week than you’re contracted for, a good job should guarantee them.

This means you’re more likely to know when you’ll be working and how much you’ll earn in advance.
