    I've given my manager my email address so she can register me to be able to apply the discount whilst shopping on John Lewis online, but it's not working at the moment. Does it take a while to activate or something?

    We signed contracts and filled in other paperwork, we were told about our training and got a USB stick with training stuff to complete at home, and confirmed our business dress sizes.
    How's the job going Moregano?

    I still keep an eye out for JLP jobs but never see any suitable

    What issues are you having with it? I was 17 when I applied for my job and I didn't have any problems with age.
    (Also, just out of curiosity, which store are you applying for?)

    On Partner Connect it says about getting Vue Movie Money tickets, 'Contact your Leisure Benefits Coordinator or Waitrose Branch Social Club Secretary who may keep a supply of tickets.'

    I doubt that was helpful lol :confused:

    I think all staff (non-management) are taken on as temps now for 13 weeks, then its new temp contract, no job, or perm contract.

    This seems to be the way with the majority of retail jobs at the moment, or at least that's my experience.

    Good luck, I don't think it'll make any difference to how your application is viewed by personnel.
