    If there's any vacancies, try Greggs. I worked there for several months and now my sister works there, I think it's pretty easy to get a job there
    Well, I just sent off an application for a Team Member role. Thanks!

    Hey guys!

    I'm just really confused and wondering what I am doing wrong when applying for jobs, I don't even make it to the interview stage. I'm a student, who is 18 looking for some part time work. I have about 2 months of sales assistant experience, and 2 months of volunteering experience, living in Birmingham.

    I've applied too:
    Boots
    Body Shop
    Next
    Superdrug
    River Island
    Subway
    House of Fraser
    Vans
    Poundland
    CeX
    JD
    Footlocker
    Tesco
    Pizza hut
    Costa
    Starbucks
    Argos
    Wilko
    Boost Juice Bars
    Marks and Spencer
    Holland and Barrett
    Aldi
    Lidl

    I think these are the ones I remember from the top of my head, I've been rejected from about 80% of them and the rest didn't bother replying so I assume rejection.

    I'm just not sure what I'm doing wrong?
    Try mcdonalds.
    They take on people quite a lot
