Kim... How did your interview go?
I just applied, but might follow up with a phone call in the morning
Good luck to everyone else too!

Hiya girls! I had the interview and i have the job! I have to say Yay or Nay today!
I am 99.9% sure I want it but I would really love to hear from anyone already doing it how they cope with Holidays! I have FDC for my 2yo and DD1 could go to vacation care a few days a week and my sister/friends could probably help out but is it REALLY feasible?????

Well done Kim !!!!
I would love to know more about what they were interested in that you had previous experience in and what questions they asked you at the interview.
With the children I think you have lots of options, as you said, so I do think it is feasible and you should go for it.

I said yes! Thought about it long and hard and decided to take the plunge!
No real retail experience in my CV, maybe it was fluke! They needed someone in my area and the sums added up!
Good luck to everyone!

I took the plunge and applied too - thanks all posters for the info, will have to update us after you get your first assignment Kim!

KIm you sell yourself short surely a TW demonstrator counts for some retail experience.

I've applied and had a telephone interview with Jan. Now waiting for the State Manager to give me a call to set up a face to face interview.
For those interested in applying, Jan's asked that when you send her your application to mention which shopping centres are close to you so that she can see if she has a territory/work available.
Good luck to all!

Got my info pack, just about to sit down and go through it! Lots of gadgets and strange hooks in there!!!! AHHHHH
Posted 07 February 2007 - 09:39 PM
Oh well done Kim!
I am not working Friday this week or next but maybe you are now!
Posted 09 February 2007 - 12:04 PM
Those strange hooks and gadgets are for hanging posters! Have someone videoing you doing this for the first time, then send it to Funniest Home Videos. You will win

Just sent my resume off - I hope it's OK, as i have never had to do a resume!
Oh well, see how it goes anyway. Can't hurt trying

STarted up! It's bamboozling but I am sure it'll be fine once I am up and running and doing my own thing!
It's time consuming at the moment as I am in training and have to be available when the Team Leader is available!
Onwards and upwards!

I just applied too , I haven't worked as such in 8 yrs & haven't been for a job interview in over 10 years so now I feel a bit nervous LOL would love to know what they asked in your interview Kim ?
Posted 04 March 2007 - 03:35 PM
They don't ask questions specific to the job per se, they are more interested in assessing your problem solving and relationship building capacity. And they certainly take a kind view of Mums who have been out of the work force for a while. Most of the employees are working mothers!
It's not brain surgery All it requires is common sense, an ability to relate to people and lots of walking! It does take a little while to get you head around it, as Kim is finding, but that's really the same with any job.
I have been at it for around 6 mths now and really enjoy it. I love working autonomously and I love the flexibility it affords me. It has been a great confidence boost after 3+ years out of the work force.
I may change my view next week after I have finished my 33 hours of work But that's a rare occurrence!

Well even though I didn't send a CV & haven't worked in 8 yrs , they must want people in my area as I just had a call back from Jan & she sounded really keen to talk further .So fingers crossed .
Posted 05 March 2007 - 03:04 PM
I';d like to apply for something like this but my retail experience only extends to part time school jobs 20 years ago , since then it's been office & IT work. Where abouts are the interviews held?
Tracy, I'm like you, been out of workforce for 6 years. I am just so overwhelmed by going back to work, I have no idea where to start and all the help out there is for people on Centrelink benefits. I'm finding it so hard I just wish I could get some guidance from somewhere without having to fork out an arm and a leg and go privately. I have no confidence and no clothes for interviews or work either!
Posted 05 March 2007 - 03:21 PM
Been dragging my heels and trying to pluck up the courage, just applied now and guess what, they filled my area today... doh! I live on the Central Coast near Gosford, did they fill it here.
She said another one might come up though, always at the airport when the boat comes in!!
Posted 05 March 2007 - 03:26 PM
Burtof I just did the over the phone interview & because I haven't had any retail experience at all ,plus no recent work experience Jan just told me it could be about anything , just as long as it related to the question ,I explained that I was nervous & that it was hard to have the confidence to put myself out there ....but she was really easy to talk to .
I found it easy to just do it rather than think to much about it , I should hear from the area manager in the next day or two , I think he does another phone interview & the final say is up to him.

How long do you work for at a time? Is it just a few hours, or can it be all day long?
I need something i can do that doesn't take more than 3-4 hours at a time, as DD won't take a bottle.
Posted 06 March 2007 - 01:41 PM
Well I had my second phone interview today & he rang back not long ago & offered me the position . So just have to sign my contract & wait for the pack to arrive & organize for a lady to come over from wagga to train me & off I go .
