    I recently got the job of a permanent sales consultant at next and I am really nervous as my first shift is next week. I'm not really sure what to do when I turn up.
    Is the first thing you must do be clocking in? How do you do this exactly, do you do it on the till and just enter the payroll number but is there a specific button or something that says clock in on the till?

    Also, how do you find out what zone your on (e.g. i think 1 was cover, 2 was changing rooms, something like that etc...).

    Also, when you go to your department for your first shift (i am on menswear for my first) what do you do? Do you tell a member of staff its your first shift and they tell you what to do or are you just expected to know what to do?
    Thanks,,,

    Don't stress. If you haven't had a shift yet they will induct you and tell you all of this! They won't expect you to just walk in and start working.

    They should tell you all of this on your induction day

    If you are working upstairs or downstairs you look at the staff sheet this will tell you what areas you are in and if you have any breaks what time they are

    Clocking in or out there is an option at the bottom which says 'more' press that and the options will change and it should say clock in/clock out, type your code in simple as that

    Have you started yet how are you liking it?
