    yep, just stacking shelves I'm afraid, can get very hectic so just take your time and don't get stressed
    Maybe I'm weird but just stacking shelves does appeal to me. I like to just get on and focus with a task like that. I think I would prefer it to dealing with loads of customers during the day.

    Also, how did you find dealing with working at night? Did it seriously mess up your body clock?

    don't stress about sleep, if you can get 5 hours before a shift that's good.

    stomach upsets is the worst thing but this can be stopped by eating healthily and having plenty of water....


    good luck

    how many days do you do? i find it extremely easy to revert back to a 'normal' sleeping pattern. I usually sleep a couple hours during the day after work.. and then go back to sleep at night as usual.

    If i have uni lectures the following day however... i'm a mess throughout the whole week

    If I get the job it would only be 2 nights a week and it would be at the weekend. So will probably be fine. It is just a case of actually getting the job now!

    Had my interview on friday evening (yesterday)
    I think I won't make it any further because I don't think I answered the customer service part well (DVD test)
    The person said it would be marked and if I don't have a high enough score I will get an immediate rejection but if I do it'll wait for when the rest get interviewed and they decide then

    I was the only one there (was expecting a group :P)
    Do HR work on weekends or will my application not be decided till during the week?

    I think the more apt question would be; Do HR work?

    is it true on your last shift you're not allowed on the checkouts? So what are you meant to do? Since I began working there that is the only thing I have ever done. I've never ever been into the warehouse and actually don't even know where it is as I was trained at a diff store! I've been working there for nearly a year, so yeah..

    probably just left behinds, baskets, scanners(if you have fast-track) . Thought it was more of a good-bye present to be free from checkouts on your last day.

    I worked on checkouts for my entire last shift [an 8 hour] and for a few minutes over. [As usual, they had no one there to take me off the basket till when my shift finished, so I had to carry on serving.]

    I had the most wonderful customer yesterday who I was chatting to whilst on the checkouts! She was talking about a drink she had tried on the way round the store and how it was really nice.. She noticed I didn't have any water with me and bought me a bottle of the drink. :eek: What a legend. :love:

    It's days like those that I like my job.

    Officially you're not meant to, incase you steal all the money in the till and then disappear forever, but most stores forget about that and let you carry on as normal.

    Got told today i had to hand in my notice today even though my last shift is 4th September!
    Wrote it out really quickly by hand on some lined paper.
    What a joke.
