Hey everyone, I finally got myself a second part time job at Gregg's .

But I'm really confused. I have got the job at Blackpool, but my induction training is in Preston, is this normal?

Are they providing the transport or allowing you to claim back the costs?
Could be that they're training loads of people together and it was just easier to get them all in one place

When I first applied I missed my interview slot, luckily they gave me a second chance and was interviewed two weeks later.

I was interviewed externally from the Gregg's store in question, at another Gregg's store close by. They started by asking really simple questions about why I want to work here, a time I worked in a team, how I overcame a challenge, a time I succeeded, the implications of being late to work.

We had a laugh at the interview because it was very informal and she said I'd be contacted in 5-7 days.

Today I got a phone call from the London HR department saying I got the job and told me my induction is on the 22nd June and I start on the 24th June. He said he'd send me an email about all the forms, which I am now waiting for :H

It can be depends on how they do there training. They save money by you going to training staff. In set places around the country.

I won't know until I get an email about it, but I'm popping in to my store tomorrow to ask. Even so it's £7.20 for a return train ticketticket, but that explanation seems viable .

We were just sat there drinking coffee, I didn't even feel like an interview. And yeah I applied online. If your looking for a job at Gregg's make an account on Gregg's family, it tells you all the recruitment opportunities in your area and it's pretty helpful.

Never said anything about it making sense.

Said they are out to save money. Ie staff pay then fuel then food and sometimes rooms.
Oh yes don't forget training rooms sometimes.
