I'm one of 14 christmas casuals and i average 15 hours a week
In my experience with shifts you either get all or nothing. I’m currently averaging 3 hours a week while others in my store are doing 10 hours a day.
3 hours that’s about it
They will tell you 15-20 hours per week, but it will end up being approximately 6-8 hours, often split over two shifts so you have to pay double the transport costs. This is apparently so they don’t have to give staff a break. My daughter has worked for them for months now as a casual and has NEVER had 15 hours per week, even though she’s available for full time work. They treat their casuals terribly.
36 hours per week as a christmas Casual.

Really depends on the size of the store and how many casuals are there. The shortest shift they usually give is 3 hours. Sometimes you won't get any shifts for weeks, and sometimes you'll get several. In my experience most of the casual staff isn't valued very highly and i think thats reflected in the rostering. Also get used to getting rosters on incredibly short notice.
