    I actually thought that when you said you were working from 3 - 7, RI and their hours! They cut me down to a 6 - 9 shift last January.. It took me more time to get to and from work than the actual numbers of hours I worked!

    Did you work boxing day? I had the easiest job ever last year haha

    What branch are you at btw? Seeing as your from London

    Just got back from work.

    My hours were pretty bad when I started I had 11-8 and 9-6, on my first days.

    Now this week it's totally shortened but now I'm working every day. My last week uness they keep me on.

    Anyways I'm at the Hammersmith branch! Was supposed to be Oxford Street / Oxford circus / Marble arch - but they transferred me there at the last minute.

    It's not too bad, if it's not busy then time can drago slowly, but if I was based in west end I think I'd probably die.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure I'd quit after first day if I was in west end.

    What's the point in selling them back to the suppliers, when you're only going to buy them back again for next Christmas?

    Not being funny, just curious:confused:
    We don't 'buy them back again' next Christmas though, we buy different designs and ranges every year. Brands that sell particularly well, for example our Me to You bear cards (some will know this as Tatty Teddy) get updated every year, so we'll sell this year's designs and shops like Tesco will sell last year's designs. Then next year, we'll buy the newest range and Tesco will sell what we had this year.
