    Dont get drunk at lunch time.

    You are up the road from me. Is the job in London or local.

    Are you really 7 stone 4? :shock:

    Good luck with the job. :thumbsup:

    [SIZE=2]smile alot, look lively, be helpfull (verging on ass kissing )[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=2][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=2]and over all be postive calm and decisive![/SIZE]

    [SIZE=2]what am i on about LOL[/SIZE]

    Things to do :giggle:

    Be on time or early if necessary. Shows your keen.

    Keep smiling no matter what job you're asked to do.

    Be pleasant and polite to everyone you meet - after all you probably wont know who is who. Dont overdo it though!

    Be presentable. No harm in overdressing on your first day just dont underdress. Presuming your female trouser suits would be my recommendation.

    If in doubt ask someone.

    Things not to do :-(

    Dont drink alcohol at lunchtimes.

    Never gossip or get drawn into office politics until you are fully familiar with everyone around you.

    Good luck and let us all know how you get on. :thumbsup:

    I have had alot of temp jobs in the past in that area, especially the Pru. Most of them are really nice. Just dont get involved with any bitching. Thats the only problem I've found when temping.

    BC (before children) - I was hardly ever over 7 1/2 stone and 5'8".

    I used to eat all the time and my doctor put me on a weight gain drink to no avail.

    With age comes weight. Now I'm 9 1/2 and have grown my curves I've been after.

    haha, why thank you :-D

    To sort of try and explain myself (If i can!), I watched one of those "size zero" programs and ever since have disliked ridiculously thin women (really tall and stick thin), I shouldn't have said anything, Sorry.

    I jumped in with a comment before I knew all the facts, Size 8 is fine can be maintained without compromising health.


    Sorry once again! (And I hope I explained that a bit better this time round!)

    Hi everyone!

    Just wanted to let everyone know how it went today....it was ok. The people seem quite nice. Im glad its just a temp thing because im not sure about it yet, give me a week at it and I will see how I feel. I didnt do anything embarrassing though which is always a plus!
