Trial Shifts - New Jobs

    • Thread Starter

    Hey everyone,

    I'm writing an article at the moment as I've come across a few people with stories of having interviewed for various places (mostly bars, pubs, restaurants) and being asked to do trial shifts. These have ranged from 2 hours - 12 hours and at the end being told they've been unsuccessful - has this happened to anyone here? Please PM me here or email me at ******** if:

    - You have been asked to work a trial shift for a job
    - You have been messed around with shifts eg. short shifts or split shifts
    - You have been paid incorrectly - cash in hand, less money than you were owed etc
