    Used to work in a local supermarket and went to college at the same time
    as soon as lessons were over I had to rush straight down and start my shift
    It was murder.

    not sticking up for supermarkets, but they do offer flexability, as some offer contracts of x hours per year, so your be covering holidays, sickness, peak periods.

    With 24 hour opening there is flexability of shifts.

    Departments - its not just the checkouts and shelf stackers theres plenty of roles available, multi tasking, gives you the chance to pick up extra shifts.

    I worked for a supermarket (1997/2000) and covered areas from tills, cash management, stock control, advertising, dry cleaning, customer cafe, staff canteen,

    The pay structure was different then as bank holidays were triple time plus day off, sundays double time, - I was young free and single and use to volunteer on a sunday for my department, then I would do price changes after store closed, short week, I would work 6 hours on a busy price change week, I use to do 13 - 14 hours.
