    Default part time work. How many hours per week?

    Hi

    Does anyone know how many hours work part time positions usually are? Would it be 3 x 8 hour days a week?

    TA

    It varies depending on the work - sometimes it could range from a few hours to a few days.

    It also depends largely on your interpretation of 'part-time'. As far as work and centrelink is concerned. I work and have worked part-time for 6months. 2 x 8 hr days for 5 months and 4 x 8 hr days for the last 1 month. Both is considered part time but both is vastly different.

    As others have said it varies.

    My new part time position is 9:30am - 4:30pm 3 days a week, but some can be 5 days a week but shorter hours.

    I start my new part-time position tonight, which is 4 nights a week 5hrs plus each shift.

    I thought part time was a minimum of 10hrs a week, and there was no maximum, or it is like 34hrs or somethingI be wrong though?
