    Kaz put a application form into Asda yesterday and today a guy called from the jobcentre asking if she she attend a panel interview next thursday evening. I texted Kaz asking if she was free then she said yes then texted me a few minutes later saying that they werent willing to give her the time off i told her to just call in sick and go to the interview

    I think its pretty low to stop someone make something with their lives

    The reason i cant get time off is because the shop is majorly screwed up and needs as many people as possible in when theyre meant to be in, which i can understand.

    I put on my application form that i could only do interviews in the morning but they still offer me one for the afternoon/evening. I will be phoning up in the morning to arrange something.

    id rather just arrange another time for the interview. I would find it very uncomfortable to keep working at poundland with a disciplinary action if i didnt get the job at Asda.

    Like i said i specified i could not do interviews in the afternoons, the guy should have taken that into account when phoning me

    :rofl: its only Asda! you made that sound like she was going to be a scientist lol

    AG asda should arrange another one that will suit you, esp if you stated on teh forum what times you could and couldnt do, they should have read it!

    good luck!

    I just phone up, the only interviews are Tuesday at 6pm and Thursday at 6pm, no morning ones.

    I put myself down for Tuesday and im gonna call in sick. Its a different day to the day i asked about so hopefully i can get away with it.

    When i went for the panel interview our group had to build a house of cards which we couldnt manage but we did give a good sales pitch saying it was actually a subterrianain house and what you could see was the roof
