    Aha

    I now have the offer of employment letter & just to let anyone else know who might be wondering its £5.85 to start then rising to a massive £5.90 after 16 weeks! Thats for over 22s tho.

    Whats the place like to work? Or does it just depend on who youre working with?

    Yeah well I have experience in a shop when I did charity work so hopefully - haha compared to my 4.68 5.85 is a lot

    Did you get an interview where at the start you filled out a survey thing then all they did was ask a few questions?

    It was an open day thing cos its a new store & everyone just filled in an application form & had an interview there & then. So they just had a quick look at my form & asked various random questions!

    Took them like 2 months to finally tell me I had the job which is ridiculous but that might be cos the shop has taken longer to get ready to open.

    I've worked for the Co-op for 14 months. I'm 19 and I earn £5.85ph - everyone earns the same over 18.

    As for what it's like - it varies from day to day. Some days will be good and some you'll just wish you'd never been born.

    As with every sales job, if there's something not in stock, or you've not got any £5 notes etc. then it's automatically your fault, even though all you're paid to do is get stuff from the warehouse to the shop floor and sell them at the till.

    The worst part is age-restricted sales. With the new under-25 policy, we've had to ID people we've not in the past, and they can get angry!

    But most of the time it is alright - and in fairness it is a job, it pays and to have one at the moment is no bad thing.

    I will have been working there for 2 weeks already tomorrow!

    Its alright. Im working with a load of nice people so that helps.

    Out of curiosity, do your managers do anything to get out of coming down to the shop floor!!! For example, they are supposed to come down & get the change order, take it up then bring it down for us but they always try to get other people to do the running up & down!

    As with the under 25 policy, my town is full to bursting with oaps!! :holmes: So I haven't had that problem as yet!
