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.

They will tell you 15-20 hours per week, but it will end up being approximately 6-8 hours, often split over two shifts so you have to pay double the transport costs. This is apparently so they don’t have to give staff a break. My daughter has worked for them for months now as a casual and has NEVER had 15 hours per week, even though she’s available for full time work. They treat their casuals terribly.

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.

Smart casual clothing is okay, try avoiding things like ripped jeans. I personally wore a button down shirt and a pair of casual jeans

They said they like to ask "fun" questions but don't think it really helps get to know the potential employee's experience in the work force. "What in what 3 words would your friends describe you?".
