    i got a job in greggs and i just had my third shift yesterday, however it's only my second time being out on the shop floor as they didn't have my uniform in my first shift so i couldn't do anything. I've been taught how to use the till, make hot drinks and refill things like drinks or crisps but nothing else. I try to keep busy when there are no customers but i feel like i need to ask for permission to do this or that? i feel like i'm being annoying to my supervisor as she was often trying to find something for me to do. I also haven't been taught about bake off yet i think but they're always telling me stuff about the oven when idk how to use it yet. I'm really confused.... i was often just standing there doing nothing but they tell me i need to look busy, If anyone works at greggs could you let me know how i can be better at my job? like what can i do when the store isn't busy? it's really bringing me down, i don't want them to fire me

    Don't stress too much, you've only done 3 shifts! If you're worried the best thing is to ask another colleague who's at the same level as you - someone who seems to know what they're doing - they'll be able to give you some advice about what the boss likes + how long it will take to be trained on various things.

    ok, thanks. There is another person who is 6 weeks into the job so she's still learning, i'll ask her
