Price, Robin (2006) Doing Time in the Retail Industry. In Pocock, B, Provis, C, & Willis, E (Eds.) 21st Century Work: High Road or Low Road: Proceedings of the 20th AIRAANZ Conference (Vol. 1), 1-3 February 2006, Australia, South Australia, Adelaide.
This paper uses survey data to explore employee satisfaction with working time arrangements within a large supermarket chain in Queensland. The findings confirm those in the literature that employees have a diverse range of working time preferences, and that employees will be more satisfied if those preferences are met by their employer. In general, many full-time employees wanted shorter hours and a sizeable proportion of part-time employees wanted longer working hours. This paper is a preliminary attempt at teasing out the explanations behind working time preferences.
