    Hi, I applied for a job at Next and recieved a call this morning inviting me to an induction. It is for the sales support team and is my first induction. What is it like? What do I have to do? :confused: I have never had a job before

    Hey I just got a job for sales support and didn't have an interview or anything.. as far as I'm aware you only need to go for an induction then that's you I have my induction on Thursday and first shift next week.

    I forgot I even applied so I wad quote surprised about the phone call. I guess they'll just be telling us the rules so to say and the way they do things in the store if you get me. Don't be nervous induction days are easy

    I applied on the Next website. Yeah I am excited, hopefully I get the job. I haven't been told what hours I'd be doing yet, do you know yours?

    Don't worry, I was worried because I didn't have an interview. What questions did they ask you?

    Do we have to wear that ugly t-shirt!? I am so nervous about wearing it because I'm overly self conscious about my arms and do we have to wear black trousers? Are we allowed to wear a black skirt with tights??

    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!
