    But they might keep you on permanently... they often take on temps if you work hard.

    I wish I had an interview. Instead I waited two weeks in "Application in progress" limbo just to be told that the position has already been filled.

    I was there for 5 weeks. I really loved the staff and the company, just had a lot of personal stuff happening at the same time AND a degree course and I really couldn't cope with juggling all three.

    Feel quite bad to be leaving really.

    Haha! I'm a Newcastle fan and they generally are Sunderland fans Was very funny for me at work on Sunday afternoon
    I've got a lot of family down Newcastle so I do follow the team and that. Wearing my top just now infact haha. Hopefully I'll manage to make a game before the end of the year.

    Oh a can imagine on Sunday. I got the security guard to check the score for me cos I work 12-8 on Sundays and when he said it was 5-1 I ended up shouting "are you f'kn serious?!" on the shop floor. Don't think anybody noticed though... Just walked about with a big grin on my face for the rest of the shift.

    I said stop what you're doing and help.

    Asking if they want help could come off a bit snarky, i could imagine a customer like 'No i just dropped all my fruit and veg on the floor for fun :rolleyes:'

    Wait for probationary period, then ask. Talk to your HR dept, and the other store usually needs to have a vacancy.
    I know this was from a while back, but thank you for answering
