    Ive seen 2 different shops today that are advertising for xmas temps already.
    Is it just me or is that really early?? Its not even the middle of August for gods sake.
    I know they have to go through the whole palava of advertising, interviewing people, taking people on etc and that takes time. But surely advertising for xmas temps should be done no earlier than september.
    What are peoples thoughts on this??

    Probably a longer process to go through nowadays whenever you just want a part time job

    A lot of get their bigger Xmas deliveries starting October onwards tbf ... If they advertise the job for a month and take two weeks to interview applicants, who then start in two weeks time, it's not going to be that early when they actually get onto the shop floor.
