    How do you cope!? Even being in there shopping for 30 minutes is my idea of a nightmare. I applaud you :clap2:

    But yeah, I suppose. I'm still secretly kind of glad nobody ever got back to me.
    We have fans behind the tills and in the back room where i mostly work =P Pick a till near the fan and it's all good =)

    Cafes, pubs, fast food places and warehouses. Most are always looking for people. Fast food places and warehouses are easiest to get the jobs at and you can easily quit after 6 weeks. Most people will get a job at a warehouse by just going in and asking for one.

    The one that 'interviewed' me was more of a chat, to be honest, to look availability and existing skills but I think it varies.

    Just random warehouses? What kind of work would a warehouse job entail?

    Most common ones are warehouse operative or picker, packer. Mostly includes sorting incoming stuff or packing orders. it's manual work for little pay but they usually hire anyone. Means it's likely most other people will barely speak English but it's not too bad for a few weeks.
    If you look for warehouse operative jobs near you on Google, you'll see which warehouses you can try. I recommend going in and asking for a job rather than applying online, it usually works better

    This isn't exactly true as McDonald's didn't want to take me on for 10 or so weeks as I was going to university, as it takes three weeks to train someone.

    I actually didn't pursue it because I managed to secure two other jobs, but it can find people jobs straight away, yes, and they generally pay fairly well.

    Hey all,

    I need a job over the next 6 weeks but i've got no clue how to go about finding vacancies and applying (especially when I have no experience). So my question is how do I go about getting a job?

    (up until now I used to tutor to earn money, but having just finished A2 i'd rather steer clear of education for a few weeks)

    thanks!
    Hey! Don't worry!
    Here is a new way out! I am interning at TalentRocket this summer. We hand pick great companies, and give job seekers the chance to look at the culture of the companies they are thinking about applying to. You can even follow a company to get an email when they have new jobs
    You can also start a conversation with companies on our platform, which could lead to the best job you could ever ask for! You can sign up with one click on LinkedIn, and it’s completely FREE! https://talentrocket.co.uk/talent/user/join/candidate
    Feel free to contact me for more details.

    When I got my first temp job at my local agency, I emailed them to see if they had any temp jobs. To my surprise, I received a call back an hour later and to get me registered. Got my first 'assignment' day after registration.
