    I have a trial shift at a pizza restaurant/cafe today (on Friday 13th, just my luck.) It's a small family run business and if I'm successful I'll be working as a kitchen porter. I have experience doing a similar role but I'm really nervous going into this job because my last one was literally the worst job I'd ever had, after a dispute about them under paying me by more than £50 three times, I got my last shift beginning of August and was never contacted again. So I always felt like I'd done something wrong or screwed up on the job.

    I'm worried too because with it being an Italian run business a lot of the staff don't seem to speak English too well. Not trying to be mean or offensive but I'm worried about miscommunication problems and when things are busy I don't want to get yelled at for doing something wrong. They also told me to wear black trousers, I have office trousers but also black jeans and I have to wear a black t-shirt so do you think it would be OK just to wear the jeans as the trousers would look too odd? I won't be in view of the customers anyway I don't think.

    I wouldn't wear jeans at least not until you see what other people in the same role are wearing. Always better to be overdressed than under.

    I agree. It wouldn't make a good first impression to turn up in jeans unless you've been explicitly told you can wear them.
