    The maths questions are basically: A customer has 7 oranges, and they would like 13. How many more oranges do they need?

    I wore a dark polo shirt and black trousers to my interview. Im not sure weither a tie might be overdoing the formal aproach.

    Bleh, some girl mentioned to me today that having a nail varnish in french manicure style is not allowed?

    I will be annoyed if it isn't, I don't like my nails to be naked :/

    I know :p: - But if (Before admins lynch me - hypothetical scenario) you can't spot that the label for Andrex toilet rolls buy one get one free is under the Chilli sauce then that could be a problem
    :rofl:

    Still, that'll be more observational skills - rather than common sense..

    Smart-arse! :p:

    Please, don't be.

    I'm not sure if my comments have in any way affected your belief of the test for the worse; but honestly, it's not that bad at all.

    If I could give you one piece of advice, it would be to wear glasses or contacts and to have a good look at EVERYTHING you see on screen. Don't always look for the obvious things!

    Good Luck!

    Well I heard about my job on a Saturday, and I didn't expect to!

    I actually need to take my glasses to work with me because there's a screen and I can't read it because I'm too short and well I'm sure glasses could help me lol. Unfortunately my glasses slide off my nose (they can't seem to do anything about that :rolleyes:) so there's a danger they could break...

    Hopefully your store isn't too strict about it. Ours isn't. And I never wear my hair up either, & its past my shoulders. Others with even longer hair wear theirs down too. And the make up rules a joke, some of them put it on with a trowel! I think it will definately be a wait n see what your stores like, kinda thing.

    LOL. I got given a long sleeved shirt thing and my goodness is it big. I look like I'm wearing some sort of man's long sleeved shirt and a pair of maternity trousers... At least it gives me a few giggles? Please tell me the maroon-y/plum-y colour uniform looks better? :tongue:

    Good job, ScarletBlaster

    I think it does. More figure-hugging to inspire male colleagues and generally makes you look maturer.
