Today was my Welcome Meeting and the worst day of my life!
I applied for the team member position at the Westfield(STratford) restarant and had an interview there. The same day when I had the interview I received an email with a invitation for a WM. I was so excited that I didn't notice that the address is different! I only noticed it when today I came for the meeting 10 minutes in advance. Tried to call them but nobody answered.
I understand that this is my fault, because I had to read the address, DUH...
But why the hell I was sent to another restarant if I applied to a particular restarant and had an interview there!?
p.s. God, I feel myself so emberest( And at the same time angry, nervous and confused=P

I contacted the restarant 2 hours ago and was told that they will contact my manager and he will send me an email with the details of the next meeting.

The welcome meeting is generally held in the biggest store of the group. Makes it easier to fit people in, and means they'll need to hold less welcome meetings. I made the same mistake when I started, I'd applied to work in a store on Princes Street, but the welcome meeting was in a different store on Princes Street, so I turned up to the store I'd applied to after not reading the email properly too
Luckily I was only a 5/10 minute walk away so still made it (even if I missed the video).
I wouldn't worry about it, best thing is to call your store and ask when the next welcome meeting will be (I dunno if you've already found that out or not) and at least you'll know where it's supposed to be this time! Mistakes happen, I wouldn't worry about it, it's a pretty common thing to happen.
So as I understand the WM can be held at any place, but I will work at the restarant where I applied for the position, is that right?
