How to filter results by work schedule

You can filter your results by one or more of the following work schedules.


A full-time job requires most employees to work 40 hours per work week. There may be slight variations in this schedule.


A part-time job requires most employees to work less than 40 hours per work week. The number of hours may vary depending on the job.


Shift-work requires coverage 24 hours per day, and sometimes 7 days per week. A shift-work job means you’ll work during a set period of time within that 24 hour period. You may work a night shift, morning shift or you may rotate shifts with other workers. The exact schedule may vary depending on the job.


An intermittent job requires you to work from time to time – there is no set schedule. This is not the same as a part-time job.

Job sharing

A job share job requires you to share a full-time job with another employee. You and the other employee share the full-time job responsibilities and receive salary and benefits on a pro-rated basis. Each job sharer can work up to 32 hours per week.


A job with multiple work schedules usually means there is more than one position that can be filled and the work schedules may vary.
