    Full time is if you want to work over 32 hours a week
    Part Time is if you want to work up to 32 hours a week
    Seasonal means if you want to work for only three months
    A shift is a set number of hours you work per day
    Rotation can mean a variety of things so that I'm not to sure about
    Overtime means you work over your scheduled hours
    Temporary means you only work for a certain amount of time say like from june to september.
    I hope this helps. Good luck on your application

    Rotation means switching shifts between days, swings, and graveyard.

    Shifts is referring to what time of day you're available. Days is typically 8am to 4pm. Afternoons is 3pm to 11pm. And nights are usally 11pm to 7am.

    Overtime is typically any hours worked in a single week past 40. So if you worked 45 hours in a week, you get normal pay for the first 40 hours, then time and a half for the remaining 5 hours.
