Most retail positions require a wide range of hours that may include evenings, weekends, holidays, overtime, and split shifts. Assure the interviewer that you can commit to a wide range of hours. If there is anything in your schedule that may hinder your availability, be sure to address this.
"I am happy to offer a flexible schedule, and to work overtime as needed. I do take an evening college course on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so I would not be available those days, after 5 PM."
"I understand that this role will include working evenings, weekends, and holidays. I am available to work anytime and am happy to work overtime as well."
"Yes, I am able to commit to the flexible hours the job has."
Good! If you want to offer up a time when you have worked flexible hours, you can always add that in.
"Yes, I can offer flexible hours. In my current role, I often work overtime to cover shifts and peak times."
