  • Contracts don’t match the hours people work

    Do people work the same number they are contracted for at Gulliver's Theme Parks and Resorts?

    People work a lot more hours than they’re contracted for

    How we know this

    80% of people report working 8 hours or more than they’re contracted for each week

    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.
