- Make sure you have the correct uniform
If there are any issues you must inform us in advance. There is no excuse for turning up to a Stint in the wrong uniform without letting us know beforehand, and in most cases, the business will send you home straight away (this will affect your reliability rating). We recommend always having our core uniform items clean and ironed; doing so will maximise your ability to be assigned to any Stint, whilst looking sharp too!
- Plan your journey
Check the TFL update and decide when you have to leave in order to get there 10/15 minutes before your Stint start time to allow for travel delays. Do bear in mind that travel during rush hour (7am-9:30am and 5pm-7:30pm) travelling always takes slightly longer.
- Charge your phone
Please make sure to have a fully-charged phone on the way to your Stint so you can inform the Stint team if there are any issues on your journey - portable chargers are very useful! Once at your Stint, do not use your phone at any time. We recommend you leave it in the staff room.
- Positive 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?
Perhaps this will help...
