In my experience with shifts you either get all or nothing. I’m currently averaging 3 hours a week while others in my store are doing 10 hours a day.

Depends, the training for seasonal staff seems pretty poor. They usually have them attend a group induction and provide some training. Not everyone learns to use the cash register at christmas the more 'fun' jobs are usually reserved for more senior staff.

If you're hired outside peek trading seasons the training is better. I was fortunate to be inducted one on one with my manager. You can expect a large majority of your 'training' to come informally from the senior casuals, ask them how stuff works and how they do things. I've worked at a few stores now and this seems to be the best way to get good at the job.

Awkward, they made me stand up in front of the store, interview was standing on the spot so it was even hard to concentrate with people passing by in the mall staring at us.
