    I gotta ask this, do you actually get to see the Queen? I know it's a silly question, but imagine bumping into the Queen while she's in her pjs carrying a bowl of cereal, like "hey don't mind me" :eek4:

    I honestly doubt the Queen is going to be rolling up on the shop floor in her pjs.

    No, I wish. The title just interested me. Good luck with the job, give Her Majesty a fist bump for me if you ever do bump into her

    Ooh have fun! Dont worry about it honestly, people went from smart to casual but I'd suggest to opt for smart when do you start?

    Anyone else applied this year or done it previously that would like to share their experiences: what the interview is like - whether they ask the general customer service questions (I applied for retail) or specific questions about the palace as well, whether you enjoyed it and how flexible they are with the start and end times of the contract?

    Thanks
    Working for the palace is just the worst. The pay is absolutely appalling, you're expected to constantly scrape and bow and debase yourself in front of horse-faced inbreds, you're often expected to live at a special Buck House halls of residence they have for the servants (and you have to sign your guests in).

    Apparently the royals make up somewhat for the awful pay by giving their staff expensive gifts at Christmas time, and if you rise high enough you might get a knighthood in the Royal Victorian Order, but at that point you've already given the best years of your life.
