    Not a dumb question at all, although I'm sure there are better ways to get answers (Google, ask parents or even ask the employer for example).

    Unless you've been told otherwise you'll need your account name (ideally the exact name the account is in), the account number of the account you'd like the money to be paid to and the sort code of the bank where your account is held. So the details will look something like this:

    Account Name: Mr Dave E Jones
    Account Number: 24689043
    Sort Code: 50-69-18

    You shouldn't need your card but it's worth having it on you. If you've not been told to, have other personal details on hand like your address, national insurance number and so on. They may already have these on file but if not you'll probably need to provide them at some point.

    Good luck and welcome to the wonderful world of retail!

    They will usually get you to fill in all the paperwork before you start, which will include your bank details etc. Usually its the account number an sort code you need to give.

    atm or debit card generally has all the information you need , as does a statement

    the key things are

    -your name as it appears on the account

    - which bank it is (obvious!) and which branch ( not so obvious)

    - the sort code which is nn -nn - nn ( the first two also say which bank it is e.g.) if you bank with HSBC the first two numbers are 40 - the next two indicate which branch . section manages your account )
    - your account number ( usually 8 digits )

    - if you bank with some of the building societies / former building societies they might also need the 'roll no' .
