I work 6 and a half hour shifts in the Newcastle store and get half hour break but I work on menswear so it takes 5 mins to get up to the lockers 10 mins to go get dinner and 10 mins to get back leaving only 5 mins to eat and be back on the shop floor. I would much prefer to work a 7 hour shift for a 1 hour break

Experiance is definatley not needed but a positive attitude will go a long way. If you have no experience then don’t worry they will train you up and buddy you with a full time member of staff to help you get started also if your successful in the job don’t be scared to ask your colleagues for help they will only be more than happy to help you
