    hie everyone!i just had a telephone interview for Xmas temp,Leeds store today.i though i did OK,but the lady said i would be contacted within 10 days with the results,which sounds like a no to me! .to be honest,i was expecting to be told i had gotten through to the next stage,WITH ALL THE PREPARATION I PUT IN!Well,has anyone been contacted back after the telephone interview with a yes,or should i just move on?please someone answer
    I was told straight after the telephone interview that I was successful in going through to the group interview. However the group interview was two days later so could have been why she told me the decision immediately. Good luck

    When i applied for the xmas temp job online they asked for a phone interview a month later. I did the phone interview and the women didnt ask me to wait 10 days she told me straight away i passed and i now have a group interview at the store. When i did the group interview they called me back the next morning telling me i got the job

    I hope this helped. But remember it's different for different people so they may call back for you. But dont wait around. Apply for other jobs too.

    Just go smart casual. When I had mine, I wore black trousers, black top, but other people were dressed in grey. They really don't mind. Just look smart

    For my induction they specified to wear something 'black and comfortable but nothing with a logo.'

    Well if they said 10 days I would wait 10 days then call. I was told the same last time and they didn't bother calling (Oxford circus) and when I rang they were unhelpful and said they would ring back, they never did! Don't feel like a failure, even if you didn't make, you will definitely do better in your next interview. I was so relaxed today and I got a call a few hours later although tbh I think a lot has to do with who interviews you and how much they liked you (which isn't your fault!)

    That is their number. Didn't they leave a message? They will tell you to call another number (which i can get for you, have it around somewhere, which you call to arrange a telephone interview)

    Last time i attended it was majority girls however today it was a mixed bag!


    Ok now me time lol. Today I attended the assessment center at westfields. I got a call back a few hours that I made it(yay for once), however this store has a second interview with the store manager, talk about a filtering process! Should I expect normal, run of the mill questions? I was told that he would ask 5 question and its only 15 minutes

    Yay for you lol. Could you possible ask your friend what questions were asked?, we were told its only 15 minutes long and 5 questions are asked, seems rather pointless

    Took a few days for them to offer me a phone interview. After that interview, they told me straight away that I'd passed. I went to the group interview the next day, and was told two days after that that I'd been successful. That was a few weeks ago now

    How's it going for you? I've got my till induction today. To be honest all the talk about safety, Debs products, brands was all really quite boring. I just want to get on with it now!

    I'm on a 16 hour contract and from what I gathered it's 4 hour shifts. Quite annoying that it's short shifts now and again rather than two long days and done. I'd rather do 10-6 for two days than 10-2 or 2-6 over the course of 4.

    I have a telephone interview tomorrow. Didn't expect to hear back so soon so I'm a bit underprepared. What sort of questions should I expect?
