As far as trainee manager advice goes, it's difficult because I was promoted internally, rather than coming in from outside the company. I think I was successful because I had specific ideas of ways our particular shop could make more money, which obviously an outsider wouldn't be able to do. They already knew I had the customer service skills, product knowledge, work ethic etc...

Yeah, I knew you already worked there. The job advert for mine said must have managerial experience.....I've had a PM with a few ideas about questions from someone else. Apparently I interview well, so here's hoping :D

I've been thinking about the shop & the stuff I rarely buy....but forget they're there iykwim. If they were moved somewhere else perhaps people (like myself) would buy them more often.


I can only see & hope........

Has anyone got any tips on Porridge soap? When I first bought it, I loved it, it smells amazing and lathers up a treat, but by the time I had used half of it, it seems handfuls of oats were just being wasted in a smush at the bottom of my shower ;_;

Does anyone have any tips to prevent it disintergrating so messily? Or any use for the oats that drop off? ^^

I've given up with Porridge, as much as I love it all it does is attract wasps (I'm allergic to wasp stings) and dissolve in the shower before you can use it all. It's a shame because it's so lovely, just too much effort for a soap.

Well done girls, for getting the jobs! I'm sure you will both be awesome :D

Did a spot of shopping today; bought some Glogg to try out, not sure if I like it not! It sort of reminds me of Coca Cola rather than Mulled Wine. =/

Sigh, apparently after seeing how I cope with a full shift, I'm "not what Lush Derby are looking for really".

I'm quite gutted about this, they didn't tell me what I was doing wrong right until the end of the shift and didn't give me any chance to try and do what I was doing better :/

DSM and Wild.Rabbit.Ren - like Iamtheparty I was promoted from within the company too so can't predict exactly what your interviews will be like but would just advise you to be yourselves, go in with ideas on how you can help your store become AWESOME and see where that takes you:)
It is knackering at times but I do love my job:) x

Thanks. I'm actually starting to panic now. I hope my blue hair doesn't put them off :? I've dyed it a darker shade, but doesn't look any darker. :oops:

'There is a common misconception about the 'type' of people that work in Lush. In my opinion there is no 'type'! You can be loud, quiet, have 15 different vibrant colours in your hair, or have beautiful natural looks, listen to Madonna or listen to Placebo; it does not matter. As long as you have raw passion for the products and love interacting with new people than you should be working for Lush!" Sonia Saada - Wimbledon'

The above is a quote the company themselves choose to use time and time again to highlight that they accept diversity. Stop getting in a panic and remind yourself of the reasons you are qualified for the position and why you will rock at it. No one is going to hire you if you aren't the first person to believe you deserve the job and you will be wicked at it (imo). Be you and be confident. :)

ETA Bomber- I'm really sorry to hear that. :( I hope you find something you love the idea of even more soon. x

Good luck DSM!

Is anyone buying the perfumes in the fragrance party this year? I'm in 2 minds whether to or not, if it's something I absolutely love I'm going to but I have a million perfumes already so going to try and resist.

DSM - really no need to worry about your hair, mine is purple and I am a Trainee and there are loads of heavily modified folk in managerial positions within the company!

I'm used to "answering to the man" though, my last place I was allowed dreads, but no piercings so still have that thing going on in my head.

Eeeeeee, I'm a little exited for it :D

Just gotta keep doping up on cold medicine & I should be fine!!!
