    Depends.

    I asked my store (Manchester) when I handed mine in and she said they'll be calling people back for interview near the end of September.

    I'm going to wait for a couple of weeks then give them a ring if I've heard nothing back by then.

    The argos i had my evening at said they will be having three more recruitment evenings which will be over the next three weeks, so you should try, maybe the same at yours.

    You can upload your CV onto this https://secure.argoscareers.com/index.html on the left hand side create a profile, however if i were you i would hand in an application form

    Handed my application in today. I'll be so gutted if I don't get the job! I hope I don't have to do a one-to-one interview either! I hate being asked questions like 'what do you think you can bring to the company' - errrrrrr.. i don't know!

    I am thinking of applying for Argos this Christmas.
    I worked for Christmas 2003 it was my first retail job, first full time job infact.
    Absolutely loved it, I really wished they had kept me on.

    I got an interview thing later today. Any tips?
    I'm not actually sure I'll be able to do the job even if I get it, cos I'm not back from uni until the 13th december. But its still interview experience whatever.

    Don't think so, I would say end of Septembers too late.

    Still nothing end of 3rd week tomorrow, don't think I've got it to be honest.

    Everywhere should have a law for job applications to say whether your successful or not, just to stop you being paranoid!

    I was a Christmas Temp last year, now working there permanently.

    If there is more than one argos you are interested in. Apply to both/all.

    Most stores will stagger start dates, otherwise it'd be impossible. I was the last to start on 12th November!

    Expect to lose weight. Especially if your store has more than one floor.

    End dates vary. Last year everybody was told 29th December, and 9 out of 12 finished on that date, the rest extended (including myself) to 12th Jan. I Then Left, then I got an phone call 10 days later asking me to come back for 3 months. Then after about 8 weeks was made permanent (unfortunately the only one of the twelve who was).
