    I'll be thankful it's 9am then not 7.30. In fairness 7.30am on a Saturday is a time no human should ever see

    So is the induction just the usual Health and Safety hooha then? I'm gonna be a Counter Assitant so what will my training involve? I'm also getting till trained apparently just in case they are short at any time!

    Same here! Well, 6am. I do wonder why people come in and do their shopping at 7am, if I didn't have to be in there then, I definately wouldn't be! Not on a saturday :eek3:

    lol reminds me of one of our shoppers, she does 12 hours a week, but volunteered for a few all nighters over xmas. She said to me about a month ago, if she is foolish enough to offer to do any of that this year, to remind her how awful it was!

    I don't think our store has it, but a few people have been off sick lately with various ailments. It hasn't got bad yet though. We're still coping with the workloads.

    Apparently we're struggling- people being called in to do overtime etc. and we end up with about 6 on shift. Luckily I haven't been yet.

    A few people claimed to get it over the summer, but it was literally 1 or two people, and thats it.

    100% of my department is always in though, because theres only me who does it at weekend, they would be screwed if i got ill.
