    What is LUSH like to work at as a student? I applied for a job as a Christmas temp, but want to go home for a few weeks or so over Christmas. I understand that they’ll be busy over this period and will need as much help as they need, but I would like to go home for a bit over this period

    I tried getting a job at Hotel Chocolat but they turned me down because I wasn't available over Christmas. Not going to happen unless you're there Christmas Eve and maybe Boxing Day too.

    You might get a day or two, but you're unlikely to get a long amount of leave over xmas in a retail job, especially if you are a Christmas temp. That's their busy time and when everybody wants to have leave. A Christmas temp is basically there to replace anybody who did manage to get leave and to bulk up staff because of the extra customers.
    I believe some places do things like you either work xmas-eve or day and boxing day or new years. That's the sort of thing I would expect. You'll probably get a pay increase for those days though so that's a plus.

    If I were you I'd do a delayed xmas with family whenever you can get the leave. Family time is more important than the date.
