As you all know I am now a uni student and my student loan will only last me so long (sob). Since I started I have been applying for Christmas work so I can have a little extra cash for presents Christmas gatherings (and little treats for myself ).
Many job applications filled in, applications handed into stores but still hadn't heard anything. I was starting to feel a little deflated as money was running out and my mum could only help so much. But finally a break through a new LUSH store in Canterbury was opening (yay). I applied straight away with fingers and toes all crossed for an interview and finally luck was on my side and the following day I had an interview for two weeks time, que me jumping up and down with huge smile on my face, and interview is better than nothing.
I love LUSH, the smell from the store is amazing and you can sniff LUSH out a mile away. If anyone hasn't heard of LUSH before they are a handmade cosmetics company. All products are beautifully crafted using eco-friendly ingredients, suitable for both vegans and veggies.
Once I found out about the interview, I took a wonder to the LUSH website and Facebook page to get some background knowledge to help with my interview. Also whilst doing my research I created my wish list of goodies I wanted and put them on the Christmas list.
Finally the interview day arrived (eek- been years since I did an interview for an retail role). It was a group interview with about 9 other girls. We first had to introduce ourselves and then we moved onto the main interview. We were split into groups and we had to create a new product etc. This was so much fun, I love being creative so this was great fun. Once this was over we were told we would find out if we got the job the following day by 6pm. So let the waiting begin.
As my interview was on a Friday, Saturday is usually a busy day for me especially now I have essay's due, so when my phone rang late in the afternoon I thought it was my mum, however I was wrong it was my new boss. That's right I got the job. YAY.
