    Ahh it's always the way! I remember when I got my first ever job working in Iceland. I had gone for an interview both there & Superdrug, Iceland let me know that they wanted me so I started working there. One week later & Superdrug phoned saying they wanted me as well!

    When I got my job where I am at the mo, I also had an interview at H Samuels. I'd been working where I am now for about a month then H Samuels said they wanted me!

    Both times I stayed where i'd originally started working but I do wonder what would of happened if I had swapped.

    The main reason for me staying where i'd already accepted was the pay was higher & I prefered the hours they were offering me anyway.

    If I was u i'd find out what TK Maxx are offering u, hours u would work, rate of pay, discounts etc & weigh up the pros & cons of each. As u have only just started at Big W u won't have to give much, if any notice I should think to leave.

    Good luck! :)

    i started big w today and i really enjoyed it! i also went for my interview at tk maxx and that went really well, they are gonna ring me tomorrow and tell me if i was succesful. they both offer the same discounts and both nearer enough give me the same amount. but tk maxx pays more. but like my mum said money aint everythin. first of all im gonna see if i get the job at tk maxx then see what i do! do you regret not going for the other jobs??
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    If u enjoy it & the people u are working with are friendly then I would stick with it personally. Your Mum is right, money isn't everything. I'd much rather be working for a lower wage but with decent people & a not too bad a job than a high wage but with people I hate & a crappy job. :)

    I don't regret not going for the other jobs but I do wonder what would of happened if i'd worked there instead. Working for Iceland was pretty crap as I didn't get on with anyone I worked with except one person but with the Superdrug job, it was when i'd just split up with one of my ex's & one of his mates works there & said he was gonna beat me up & shit if I had worked there. :rolleyes: Still got no idea why to this day & it was nearly 2yrs ago now!

    As for the job i'm in at the mo, well i'm handing my notice in on Sunday. I've been there for about a year now & when I started everyone was lovely & the work was good. Now it is just awful & I dread going into work. I am glad I did start there & not H Samuels though as i've made some great friends & it is also easier to get to.

    I've now applied for yet another job, only one so far though so hopefully won't have the 'argh, which one do I go for' thing although knowing my luck I won't get it anyway! :(

    If u are enjoying working for Big W then I would stick with it personally. U may find u hate TK Maxx & if TK Maxx do offer u the job u always have the option of applying there again if things don't work out at Big W as u know u had something they wanted! :)

    Yup! :D

    Had to tell the guys who work in the gym & on the bar when I work y/day though & they were really upset. :( Still I see them a lot outside of work anyway so it won't be too bad. I still felt bad though.

    I hate working w/ends though & I hate the new managers & haven't been happy for a good few months now though so I am very much looking forward to leaving. I was training the new girl taking my place y/day, that was quite fun actually! :D Second person i've had to train now & I love doing it for some reason!
