That is fair enough. I don't blame you for doing that because that would be exploitation.
I'm not saying exploitation doesn't exist, I'm just saying that three days is not it.

No fcking way. Trials rob you for your free time. I've had experience with this

yup, i'm job seeking, got an interview, interview went ok , and then the lady said, 'the next stage of the recruitment process is to work unpaid trail for a few days'

Would you do it? is it legal?

Oh wow,how has my life come to this :rofl:
Depends how much I wanted the job. Although I have mentioned previously on a different post that I completed a 6 week "work placement" programme with Asda a couple a years ago when I was desperate for a job but I found a different position by the end of it and turned it down because it was sssssooooo BORING. But that was my experience and it will obviously be different people so I am not bashing the company as a whole just the one store. The issue with so many people looking for jobs is that some employers will take advantage with these trials and such. The placement I completed was exploitation in hindsight.
