    You'll have to apply for jobs at other retailers. I hear what you are saying though, its a very crowded market at the moment :-(

    Supermarkets seem the likely choice considering they pop up everywhere.

    potluck, with these things nowadays. have to look good speak well, be educated to a good standard but not be TOO educated (degree) or they turn you down, to get just a supermarket entry level job. Many many factors.

    Is it not easier to get 2 part time jobs for these types of things?

    You can't walk down the street without seeing advert after advert for part time work. All the added advantages of being a part timer (slacker) but the money of a full timer.

    Hang on, weren't you the one who made that thread about being a game tester and not getting any respect a year or two ago?

    I'll never get my Orc looking the same again.

    When I was younger I remember going for a group job interview at the Odeon where they made everyone design an outfit that went with a certain film out of a bin liner and some paper. I made an Iceman outfit from Top Gun and it looked EPIC!

    I swear they were taking the piss.
