Best Answer: If you're applying for a part-time job, your availability should be discussed during the interview. Be careful about being too rigid in your days and hours. Most employers are willing to work around your school schedule however.
You can but it won't help you get a job
In fact back Webern I did hiring anyone that told me something like that would never be hired
I set the schedule, you work the days/hours scheduled or you don't work, period

only if the employer advertises the job as part time work
in your case, you are seeking less than full time work
most states are "at will" employers, meaning you work at the will of the employer, not your will, it is a legal thing.
you have no rights to set your own hours once hired, in an 'at will ' employer
You can tell them whatever you want, and they can fire you if they want. But to keep your job, you have to work how many days they want you to work; you can't work more than they want, and if you work less than they want, they might fire you.
You can. But their needs trump yours. If your wants don't match their needs, you don't get the job.
I ran a pizza hut 33 years ago before delivery. Everyone except one experienced waitress could work nights. And everyone worked weekends. If you came to me and said you wanted to work mon-thurs 3 days only, I would have said sorry, I don't have anything for you. I did not like having to hire the one that only worked days but I was desperate at the time and she was experienced.
I had one guy, an experienced dough maker that worked days only. He was good and had a 2nd job at nights.
I had a guy that interviewed that wanted to work days and I told him I did not have anything.
Yes, and they'll either say ok, that's just what we need, or else say thanks for coming in, but we need someone for more, or less, than that. Or they might hire you, then schedule you for either more or less hours than you asked for.
