    Me too! I applied for weekend and part-time work. Mind you, I've also applied at Boots (interview today, but they've closed the Christmas temp positions to new applicants now at my local branch), BHS, Waitrose, Sainsbury's, Lush... keep checking the HMV website too but no such luck yet. I really really want a Christmas job! I think Debenhams would be a really nice place to work too, nice atmosphere and all, and it's quite big so you might be asked to do lots of different things...

    so during what dates are you employed for most of the jobs? And can you get a job if you're at uni but can't come back for an interview?

    I was gonna suggest BHS what about a hardware type shop; like B&Q or Homebase or somewhere (dunno if they have them in Peterborough) cos they are usually recruiting.

    HMV, I had a job interview with them today for the Christmas Seasonal position. They really want to hire me they said but they would need to interview everyone today. But I will find out the real truth on Monday. :yep:

    Well at least it will be better than where I work - Primark. :rolleyes:

    Some supermarkets do Christmas Temps, can't you try there?

    Primark might have we've finished recruiting our Christmas staff in Meadowhall in Sheffield, but it all depends on the store location. :p:

    I've just had an interview with HMV today in Meadowhall, Sheffield for the Christmas Seasonal position as they call it. The man who interviewed me said he's really interested in hiring me, but the thing is the store policy states that he will need to interview everyone before hiring. So hopefully on Monday he will finally say YES.

    Trawl the High Street. Pick a day, print off a bundle of CVs, and dress half decently. Some places will have signs up already, but not everywhere will, so go in and ask to speak with the manager.
