    why is it that of the shopfloor Next play the 'advert song' every minute, Im so freaking tired of it all ready
    Next radio is the most depressing thing ever, i can hear the AB10 opposite my store playing top 40 songs, but most of the ones in next; i've never heard before.

    Well it's really just filling out forms and being shown around, oh and you can't forget the videos..., both of mine I've came in casual as I was told to on my first one, and it wasn't a problem. Just don't come in in dirty trainers looking like you've just woke up and you'll be fine!
    Maybe go smart casual as it's the first time they'll meet you so good to give a good first impression.

    I have an interview at TWO of my local next's tomorrow. one at 11.30 and the other at 6.00. the 1st one just told me to bring in a CV and said it would be a 1-on-1 interview with a shop floor exercise. Whilst the other told me to bring in a Passport, Ni number and bank acc details and nothing more.

    What should i be expecting from the interview and exercise and with the 2nd one asking me for bank details does that mean i have the job.

    I've got a like a group interview thing on Saturday at the Next in town. The lady never said what to wear so I was planning to go in a grey (Next) suit with a purple (Next) shirt with no tie; kinda stylish but smart. But reading through this has made me think it might be almost too formal? I know it's better to overdress than underdress but does anyone think I should tone it down a bit?

    (And it's just a coincidence the clothes are actually from Next :P)

    well i had my NEXT interview on Wednesday - it was one to one, and only lasted 10 mins! I have to say it was the most relaxed, fun and easy going interview ive had. I got the phonecall today to say i got the job which was amazing! Ive only got x2 4 hour shifts at the moment which brings me on to my question, lol. Generally, how many more hours do they offer you? ive told them my availability, so presumably they'll know i'll need to fit it in around my uni hours.

    I'm working as a xmas temp, and I've had my interview and everything and I was told that I was going to get called about an induction. But instead of the induction I was called and they asked me if I could work in the weekend even though I haven't had an induction and I have NO CLUE what to do! :confused:
    ALSO, Smart wear is okay right? like a skirt, a blouse and a blazer maybeee?! Thanks!
