    Depends on how many hours you are contracted to.

    No it doesn't.

    Its 75% clothing allowance, however it is strictly enforced, so don't go nuts with it!

    I meant in regards to how much they give you.... such as if someone is contracted to four hours they get £75 whereas someone contracted to sixteen hours gets more.

    But for you to get that break you will have to be there for 5 hours, as you don't get paid for breaks, it'd be better to just work your 4.5 hour shift with no break I think.

    I've got an interview at Next tomorrow, im quite nervous! I'll admit im still no good with interviews at the age of 23 i can never think of answers on the spot to the sily questions they ask and always panic, im silly i know
    I rememeber the days when it was easy to get a job!

    If anyone reads this before my interview tomorrow, can anyone tell me what hours you generally work a day? The shop id be working at is open 9am-8pm in the week.

    I handed an application for a Christmas Temp job into Next today - what are my chances of getting an interview, have I left it too late? I must say, the girl I handed it into looked a bit surpised that I'd haded it in, making me wonder whether it is a bit late.

    No you havn't. As far as I am aware they are still looking for help in the sales.
