Hi!

I got a call yesterday offering me a weekend position at Greggs (very happy), but I told the woman on the phone that before I accept I have some concerns about holiday and whether I can make up for being away at the weekend by working during the week during school holidays etc. because I go away a lot. She said she would phone the manager at the shop and then phone me back. It's the next day and I have no call back and left a voicemail at about 4pm. Should I be worried?? I really don't want to miss out an opportunity and don't know if they're always busy at recruitment/take a long time to get back to you and if I'll annoy them by phoning every day. In the voicemail I said I wanted to accept the job and whether I could discuss holiday and other concerns with the manager at the induction (which she didn't mention to me). Does anyone who works at Greggs know how long they take to get back to you about the induction after they offer you a job?

Did you mention the fact that you go away alot at your interview?
If you didn't they could have potentially revoked the offer... It's not just about you making up the hours during the week. If you're weekend staff they expect you to be there on the weekends...If not someone else (probably weekday staff) has to have their hours messed about to cover you.

Congratulations on your job offer.

Out of interest, have you noticed just how many threads about jobs and offers and working conditions at Greggs there are on TSR? It seems a very popular employer
