    I just had an induction for the sale, however I did have an interview for my permanent position



    I'm afraid so If you really are self-conscious about your arms, wear a long-sleeved black top underneath You're allowed to wear either black pants or skirt & tights, it's completely up to you aslong as you look smart!
    Did you have to re apply for permanent job? or ask for one or??? anyone help please???

    Don't worry, I was worried because I didn't have an interview. What questions did they ask you?
    They were something along the lines of what has been your biggest achievement, what would you do to make a boring task more fun, things like that. I turned the job down though as I found out it was only for 2 days and shifts could start at 5am :/

    They ask if you're interested then once your shifts are done they choose people based on what they saw

    hey guys I've worked at Next for two years and I originally worked as part of the Sale team then managed to get a permanent position later. You will most likely to have to reapply for a permanent role as the management tend to hire lots of staff over the sale, and also there isn't much of an interview process compared to applying for a permanent position. If you have any questions, just ask

    Did you do anything special to get offered a permanent position? Like go out of your way or something? (I've never worked in a retail environment before) so basically, any tips haha ?

    Being honest I'm not too sure haha, I didn't have any working experience before the sale. What mostly happens on the sale is you get a lot of new staff standing around, not sure what they're doing, so the best thing to do is ask! There will definitely be something for you to do, and it'll make you look eager and helpful. You probably won't be on the tills, but the key thing is to remember to stay calm and polite despite it getting ridiculously busy at some points in the day!

    I don't think getting a permanent position relies on your sale day experience though. I think if there's an opportunity for a permanent job then you are more likely to get it by saying what skills you learnt over the sale etc

    Hi. I had my induction for the sale support position today, and we were told that we'd be informed which department we would be in for sale day - however this information wasn't given. My shift on sale day isn't until 1pm - any suggestions on what to do when I arrive? Should I just turn up early, clock in and go and speak to admin? Or a supervisor? :/ Thanks

    What clothing have they asked you to wear? For my first shift it was casual, however, for my second shift I'm unsure. My first shift was preparing for the sale the next day, this shift coming up will be when the store is open? Any suggestions?
