    The way they probably looked at it, was you worked for them and quit, why would they hire you again if you're just going to quit again?

    Exactly! I don't understand why they're being stricter. It's not a good pay rate, like its just decent discount tbh. Ahhhh i have an interview for one, but its not in my uni town, its in the next city. ugh.

    That is the problem nowadays. When people leave their part time jobs to study at university - thats it there is no going back, because they WILL think that you are just going to leave again due to your high aspirations etc.
    A lot of graduates have done this, got themselves a retail job and leave when something better comes up. This is why most graduates cannot even get retail jobs after university.
