    Well i get paid for the while shift, i just always think 30 mins break for 8 hours is a bit crap, especially as i work so much.

    I assume that on my 6-10am early shift I won't get a break - I mean actually I don't want one, I want the 4 hours pay! :yep:

    Nah, no break on a 4 hour shift. Although when I did 6-10 as overtime on Sunday and we finished at 9.30 I got a half hour 'break' before I clocked out. My manager insisted :p:

    They normally email you if you are successful within a couple of days. It can take from 1 - 1 month sometimes for HRSS to get back to you about your interview. I think what most people do is call up HRSS and ask about the status of their interview .

    Try shoe zone they are cheap, last a good few shifts (done three months in mine so far) and they are really comfortable, but if they don't mind what you wear you could get a pair of comfy black trainers, i only have shoes as i work in shop open hours as well (2-10) as closed, night fill!!

    I do night fill- so only untill 10, but i was offered the night shift as overtime over summer, then they realised that i am too young to do night shift, but i would have done it if i could have, would have been a laugh seeing my boss come in at 7am when i am going home, but i think night shifts are mainly guys, because the nature of night shift work- is all shelf stacking whilst most girls would prefer to be on a checkout.
