    I have my Currys PC World induction training tomorrow. I was told on the phone that the dress code is smart casual, followed by the guy saying "so obviously no tracksuits or anything because you'll be going on the shop floor". The fact he said this, in my opinion, implies that jeans are suitable but I'm not so sure.

    Anyway, my two options are..

    1) Casual navy patterned shirt tucked into smart black trousers, with black shoes
    2) Same patterned shirt, not tucked in with black skinny jeans and dark brown suede shoes (bit worried about the skinny jeans since they're literally skin tight, and all my jeans are the same).

    I'm probably over-thinking it all, but I don't want to turn up either underdressed or overdressed.

    Thanks

    Go for option 1. It sounds smart casual, and even though it is Currys you still need to look professional. Always better to over dress rather than under dress for these things.

    Hey,

    It was good! I'm not sure if it will be the same as yours though since our store has both a store induction and a company induction.

    Last Sunday was the store induction. We basically just went through sales techniques, products (mainly focusing on the extras like careplans) and targets. It was very relaxed and informal and just with one of the managers from our store. He gave us the information as well as time to discuss it and write it down; not a bad day for £40!

    I'm at the company induction this Sunday, and from what I've been told, it's more focused on health and safety, company aims and legal procedures etc. They also combine new staff from various stores in the local area and the training is delivered from an actual company trainer rather than a store manager. This may be what you'll be doing since not every store offers the personal store induction.

    Where are you from? It'd be funny if we were both at the same induction this Sunday!

    Ohh I see! How strange, my interviewer told me that the induction is another interview where they will decide if I'm suitable for the job or not

    Hahaa yeah! I'm from London, I think I'll be at the Tottenham Court Road PC World but I'm not entirely sure, wbu?

    Btw - thank you so much for the detailed and quick reply, really appreciate it

    Hmm that's strange! I'm just a temp so that could be why..

    I'm at the Metrocentre Currys PC World (combined), just outside of Newcastle.

    And no problem - best of luck for Sunday!

    I'm a temp too, maybe they have too many applications? Oh well, I'll just see how it goes

    Nice! And good luck to you too!
