Only some people work the same number of hours theyโ€™re contracted for

Not great
57% of people report working 8 hours or more than theyโ€™re contracted for each week

Based on information from 7 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.

Itโ€™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 youโ€™re contracted for, a good job should guarantee them.

This means youโ€™re more likely to know when youโ€™ll be working and how much youโ€™ll earn in advance.
