- Attitude, attitude, attitude!
A business would much rather have a Student who has never worked before, who turns up with a smile, is outgoing, takes initiative and is willing to work hard, than someone who has worked for years and looks like they do not want to be there. Always ask yourself - if the manager looked at me right at this second, what would they think?
- Wear the correct uniform
Each business will have a strict dress code, and students who turn up in the wrong uniform will receive a bad rating and get sent home.
- Arrive on time
We have a very strict lateness policy, and when students are late, we have to compensate the business. Even if you are a minute late, the business takes this into account and contacts us. In the event that you think you could be late, please inform us as we will have to warn the business. Make sure to plan your journey and aim to be 15 minutes early in order to account for delays.
- Be ready to learn, and ask questions
You will never know everything, so be proactive and ask the staff members questions on how you can improve your work. However, if the business is very busy, keep the questions to a minimum - staff will have a lot of things to do!
- Look for more ways to help
If you find yourself with nothing to do, ask if you can assist anywhere and make yourself available to help. This will not only show that you are capable of following instructions, but going beyond them to offer extra support.
- Make a good impression
If you are friendly and chatty with the staff, they are always more likely to rate you a 5*.
