    Hey all,

    I applied for a position and wanted check how my application was doing...I phoned the store and they said that No christmas temps positions are being advertised. The problem is, they are advertising, on the official site!

    Any advice

    You probably just went through to someone stupid. Say you have already applied and want to know the status, if they say no temps. Just say well how come I applied

    Sorry, I wasn't expecting someone so pretentious. Well in that case have you contacted head office to see if they are lying or not?

    I've checked and the other manager said that they were advertising, but they are taking noone on now, because the store did not meet the qouta? So i've asked what i can do in the process, and the advice i recieved was to apply to other stores.

    Waste of time!

    I assume the store isn't getting as many sales as they were expecting so they've had to cancel the temps (they can do this at any point, even if you were already working as a temp). Try some other shops in that case
