Easier to job hunt while you're in work too Dave (at your old pay too which is sweet :) ) - keep the wolf from the door as well :wink:

My experience of being on the dole was that employers seemed to consider people in work more seriously than those of us who hadn't worked in a while. I only got my current job because I worked there back in the eighties and knew one of the managers. Even my current boss often discards the unemployed out of hand, particularly from the Job Centre, over someone who is already working (demonstrable work ethic I suppose?). :?

Cant explain it ALL....... but..... Four hour training session this week on how to get people into debt! Big debt!

I have one of the highest selling points (items) of the store... but lowest margins. I show them the best buys.

I don't believe in debt.

Persuading people to get expensive items on HP and deliberately getting them into debt?

Nice people you work for. I'd have problems with that too.
