Don't worry, I also sent mine off over a month ago-I thought it would be a good thing whilst studying a degree-maybe they think I am over qualified!

I thought being nearly 40 and having a lot of customer service experience would count for something-obviously not!

I got a better offer today anyway.

Good luck to all anyways...

Qantas, there probably wasn't any work available in your area. I'm mid 30's, degree educated and previously 10 years as a marketing manager in IT and they gave me a job  wink.gif

Yep, that's what I thought it could be, too. original.gif

I am starting a part time job after the school holidays, more in the line of what I am studying.

Sounded good though!

Good luck flowermummy !!!  

They probably keep emails/applications on file, for when a position becomes available.. Either that or they are still sorting through and reading all the applications they got fom EB ladies!!

Goodluck flowermummy .

I have been doing this for 3 weeks now & slowly getting into a routine after not working for so long , so far I seem to be averaging 15-20 hours a week .

How is everyone else who got jobs with them going ?

Hi there

I have had my phone interview and will be having my face to face on Friday. Funnily enough I am back at school doing my visual merchandising diploma and prior to that have 19 years customer service experience. I am pretty excited about this opportunity to be honest. Tracy that sounds great are you casual at the moment that is what I will be to start with.

Hi Gina

Yeah I am casual , I think that is all they offer .The only ones that are permanent are the team leaders , support staff & area managers all merchandisers are just casuals .

I have been doing this for about 6 months now and love it. It is a great "mummy" job if you have kids at school. Don't have to pay for any daycare or OSH Care. Yes, everyone is casual as your work hours vary from week to week. Hope your interview goes well ... from my experience once you get to the face to face interview you're a dead cert unless you have two heads or something  biggrin.gif

I GOT THE JOB. Face to face went very well. I am part of a merchandising team for dedicated products. I am pretty excited as it sounds awesome. I am currently in second year of visual merchandising so can put that into practice. YIPPEE.

Just apply it may take a while too hear as they contact you when a job becomes available in your local area. It is a constant thing.
3 of us have just been employed in Adelaide.

Thanks, but no, still have heard nothing!! I dont know wheteher to assume I did'nt get it or what, as the interview was very positive, even to the point of the lady saying "wait till u you have to do this or that", so needless to say Im confused!!

Anyway, will post If I hear anything....

Hi Ladies,
This sounds interesting, but did one of you say that you can't do this on weekends or evenings? Why is that? Aren't some of the big chain stores open on weeknights (ie: Kmart) and all of them open on weekends?

If so, that puts me out of the running too. Weekends and evenings would be the only time I could do it when DH can look after the kids.

You can only do this weekdays , so no weekend or night time work available .I guess the reason that they don't do this is because of what they would have to pay you .

#72 sarahbeara4

Posted 06 June 2007 - 01:43 PM

Oh yeah, I didn't think of that.
No good for me right now then.
Thanks for the reply!

You need too work the mon-fri hours 9-5 because you need to speak to dept managers etc and these are generally their hours. I am in SA and they are looking for more staff so give it a whirl.

BTW Tia I heard pretty quickly after my initial phone interview all done and dusted within a week if I remember.

I work approx 2-3 days a week not full days though more like 9-2.30pm sort of thing.

I applied yesterday and have a phone interview tomorrow!
Any tips from those who do work for this company.
I don't actually have any merchandising experience.
Also do you wear a uniform?

I don't feel like I know much about it so hope I go ok.

My bub is also only 11 weeks old and hope to be able to do this job around my partners shift work?

Thanks heaps for any insight...

So is this job available in all states, I only have one shopping centre very close, with Kmart, Target... The next is about 35 minutes away, and after that is 45 minutes.  Do they also do Safeway (woolworths in other states) and coles???

It sounds like a descent hourly wage to me... allthough would only be viable if I was guaranteed to get a certain amount of hours a week, or another of the work from home jobs come through.
