    Sorry no experience of tires for less (bit far for me to go for tires!) but just want to say best of luck with the interview Friday.
    It's tough enough to even get an interview these days!
    Hope it goes your way :thumbsup:

    Well one o clock came, I went had the interview, 5 others were busy filling in ap forms whilst I was there, so i diddnt think I stood a chance really.

    The boss julian said he would let me know most likeley on monday. So that was me, I thought it went well but he reminded me of a strict teacher at times lol, but he was ok.

    Anyway it got to 4:45pm I got a call and ...................




    .................i got it! Start monday 0830!!!!!!!!!




    I wasnt cheeky enough to mention discounts etc lol but i will do when i been there a bit, so I could be your tyre man!

    Thanks for all your support.

    Well done. Getting a new job is a bl00dy hard thing to do in the current climate. Give yourself a big pat on the back.

    Congrats, I've been to a few job interviews fairly recently and know how horrible they are. I've been happily working in my new job for three months now.

    Yes, I know what you mean. I was on the dole for about five months before I got this job, for a while I didn't think I was going to get another job ever.

    I hope it works out good for you.

    I'm not proud of it (going on the dole), but needs must. It's a relief to be working again, I just have to hope I don't get made redundant again. Surely the economy has to be strong soon (maybe stronger) after the lessons learnt from last time.

    Well done that man! Loads of people are in the position you were in.

    The press need to stop banging on about our financial climate. It's putting people off of spended, which stops employers from employing. I'm
    Self employed and really noticed how bad it gets. Luckily it's picked back up for me, short term at least
