Just a word of warning to anyone who has replied to a recent online job advert for a sales assistant selling shoes in either the Crossgates or St John's Shopping Centre in Leeds. Replying to the advert with your CV as requested will be met with an immediate offer of an interview and 'training.' You will be asked to attend the interview at the start of the day and find yourself with 2-3 other people who have also been invited to be interviewed too. The woman leading this will then make an excuse and leave you with the stock, but not before warning you about CCTV and the fact that you will be accountable for any stock missing during her absence. You will be left selling shoes for her all day. She will return at around 5.30pm to collect the takings and promise to phone you the same evening. Neither you or the other people who have worked for her all day will be offered any payment for the work she left you to do, most of who are young teenage jobseekers desperate for work. Nor will you ever hear from her again. Whatever you do, please do not be duped into giving this woman your national insurance number. She will ask for it when she first meets you, but why does she need it if you are only attending an interview? If you have given your national insurance I advise you to inform the police on their non-emergency number 101. I have searched this womans name online and her business interests leave a lot to be desired!!! If you or anyone you know has been duped into working 8 hours for no pay you can contact the Citizens Advice Bureau for advice on taking civil action. There doesn't appear to be a genuine job on offer, when my neice was duped into working a full day for her along with 3 other young girls, they handed takings of around £300 to this woman who promptly got them to carry the remaining stock to her fancy car and swanned off. Since this happened I have heard a friend of a friends daughter was duped into this too. The same scenario, a group of young girls all asked to attend an interview, given an excuse then left all day long selling shoes for no pay. It seams to be a big con. If you or anyone you know has been duped by this woman it would be interesting to hear your story. EDIT......................... Please read post number 25 in this topic, I don't want to put anyone off buying Flossy shoes, this post is about one particular individual who has acted deviously for their own gain, but who is no longer trading in the centres here in Leeds.
