    I recently went to a m&s interview and was successful, i put my supervisor at the time down as a reference however. having gone back to work today i discovered she has moved on to a different company. However, I first started the job in ladies wear as a temp and then moved on to the stock room as a permament worker on a saturday. The supervisor that has left was really the only person that would be able to give me a reference i think because she was the only person high up that really knew me from the stock rooms so i don't really know what to do! Help!
    Thanks.

    I had this problem. My longest job yrs ago, the company doesn't even exist anymore. And the manager that was at a hotel I worked at isn't there anymore either. I think if you cant put a work reference they generally take character ones? As long as they aren't family. I filled the online one in for M & S once & i'm sure they said that on there? x

    I put down my guidance teacher aswell. They said my contract is conditional though, depending on what my references say about me. Thanks.

    Your guidance teacher will be a good one. I'm sure it will be fine. Good luck x
