My interview was good as back in the day things were done properly. However nowadays due to no full time contracts being offered, the basic criteria to get a job is 1- can you speak a bit of English, 2- do your arms and legs work (not always is the answer yes needed for that one) and 3- would you like a job on 12 hours with a small bit of overtime? (Prob not small at all, will be banged up to 35 hours a week without gaining the rewards of holiday pay
