Good luck to all the lads going to assessments! Base all your answers around health and safety and customer sastisfaction and you won't go wrong.

Currently in yarnfield now, To all the guys coming next week, the biggest piece of advice is bring a large bag or suitcase, the amount of stuff you get is unreal!


Thanks for the advice mate smile

How much stuff are we talking here lol When you say large, do you mean hand luggage or bigger ?

What would you suggest taking down also ? Guessing you went wearing usual dress code ?

No not hand luggage, bring a suitcase! One with wheels if possible. You will be getting all your uniforms and laptop, testers and phone etc. It should be a touch easier if you guys don't need to commute to an outside hotel but better to have luggage to get all your stuff away so none of your stuff can get mixed up.

Smart casual so a smart tshirt and jeans is fine, trainers too will suffice for the 1st day then you will be in working boots and uniform from Tuesday onwards.

You guys will really enjoy it, although it's a lot to take in join a massive company like this the trainers are really helpful and insightful so don't be nervous and just look forward to it.
