Hi I’ve just accepted a job at John Lewis Cardiff as an Xmas temp. I was wondering if anyone who’s worked as JL could give me any advice please? I’m really nervous this is my second job! Also any idea of what I should wear? Do they provide uniform? If not is it even worth buying expensive uniform I’ll only work there on weekends until Jan?

Hi
I don't work with JL but I do work within retail ok.

Try not to be nervous but everyone do feel this way when starting new jobs

What to wear if male - either white or black shirt or T-shirt and black trousers and comfortable shoes,
If you are a female then wear either white or black blouse / black trousers or a skirt & tights, or a short sleeve dress about knee length with tights and flat shoes.
Wear this for first shift untill you find out what's suitable to wear as every retailer has there own rules what temps can wear ok.
If buying new for the job then don't buy anything expensive as you could easier rip or tear your clothes so buy cheap clothes , don't matter if its there's uniform as can be replaced but when own clothes take care

Ok thank you so much! I might just re-wear what I wore to the interview then (a black dress and black leggings)!

Hi

You most welcome ok

Yeah that sounds fine because they should had told you what to wear but you'll look cool in that.
Its been a long while since I been in a JL store so don't know what the staff wear nowadays as use to be a dress & jacket I think but changed days.

Hope you enjoy it there ,
