    Just went into my store to pick up a few things. All the ends of the aisles have Christmas items on and everything else has moved. Gonna be a nightmare finding everything on Wednesday morning

    How long do you normally have to wait until you find out if you get the job or not?

    No more night shift premium?

    I checked my new contract as it was sent in the post and under additional allowances it only states bank holiday premium. Nothing to do with nightshift!

    Maybe they left it off accidentally? Mine has night shift and bank holiday premiums on it and I only got it on friday.

    john_daniel- it depends when they interview the other people and stuff. I heard on the Saturday after my interview (my interview was on the Wednesday)

    Do you work through the hour of 2? The night shift premium has just gone up 5p across the company, certainly not been removed

    I KNOW! They are bloody incompetent! Basically, I got to work on Saturday and it's like "Oh by the way I'm Samantha and I'm your new boss!"

    Nothing wrong with her, she gave everyone maltesers?! But it's just nice to know what's going to happen rather than when it's apparently been the case for 3 weeks all of a sudden to find out!! Haha.
    Atleast you got introduced to your new boss! We never did, & she started doing it about 6 weeks ago! I only know who she is because she writes on the notice board

    Well, that was fun for me wasnt it.

    I got put in a room without a tv, so that sent off some red flags. Then a woman comes in and tells me that because i applied only a month ago before, im not allowed the interview, and was then shown the door. :mad:

    What baffles me is that she told me i was flagged by HR that id had a previous interview and that they had contacted my store. Why didnt the guy i phoned to arrange an interview tell me that at the time, instead of making me look like a fool and go to the store :confused:

    Blargh Unemployment is nasty.

    I had my interview yesterday and I was really worried about it but there's no need, it's very casual and enjoyable. Just remember to smile and stay relaxed
