View Full Version : When do Supermarkets start advertising for Christmas staff?

19th September 2008, 09:57
Am considering getting a temp job in the run-up to Christmas. I know Debenhams are recruiting, but that would mean going to town and :eek: paying for parking! Has anyone seen ads for Supermarkets yet?

Thanks! :D

Argos are just getting their Christmas recruitment sorted so my advice would be to go and ask for application form :)

Supermarkets dont normally take on extra, they just seem to give the students more hours.

They seem to round here - I saw ads last year, in fact a friend worked for Sainsburys over Christmas if I remember correctly.

I remember working in Burtons Menswear store over Christmas when I was 18 and a student.

You need to work wherever you get the biggest discount!! :D

Went to our local (small) town. Argos aren't advertising yet. Checked with CS at Mr T and they do take people on for Christmas at that store, but nothing yet. I got told just to keep my eye out for ads instore.

Most shops will start recruiting next month. I was in TK MAXX on friday and when a young girl asked they said bring in a CV now ready for next month. So some may not even advertise if enuff people drop in CVs well in advance. I know i seen few shops saying already full time temp staff jobs availiable
