Based on information from 37 job reviews

Why this matters

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.
