You see the problem here, abbey? They need people who are problem solving yet you can't decide whether to attend the interview. In my view, every interview is experience and practice. Attend the interview and question them about the problem-solving skills, what sort of problems are you likely to encounter?

Yes but couldn't take them as realised bad things about them

This is your problem, accept a job and see if you like it. Just because other people have bad things to say about a job doesn't mean that you won't.

Be brave and take the next job that you are offered.
What bad things were there. If it was because the hours impacted on your social life then you have to get your priorities right. If it was the work requirements then you need to expand your skills. Have you thought of doing some evening courses
at some point you got to make a move unless your going to stay at MaccyDs for ever. And the longer you stay the less likely you are to pick up new skills and experience's to help you get a new job .
If you keep pulling out after getting an offer you need to ask why your applying for these jobs, are you applying for the wrong things.... you need to think what you really want to do and how your gonna get there.
Think...What would your dream next job look like.

Just didn't want to leave my job and not like it.

Question Author
Monday to Friday job either in a warehouse or receptionist
Receptionists must have excellent social skills, be able to deal with hostility and possibly aggression and think on their feet. People love to complain and the receptionist is the accessible member of staff and first in line for an earful of discontent or sob stories.

It is not the easy job many people think it is, stuck between trying to help the client and protect the staff from bothersome people

Got my theory test same day and practising that more.
Abbey, life is not a bowl of cherries. Millions of people work in jobs they don't like, it's the only way they can afford to live and they come to terms with it.
Nowadays conditions have improved (we no longer send kids up chimneys), but you've got to learn to take the rough with the smooth, decide what compromises you are prepared to take to hold down a job.

As regards this particular job, read through the skills and behaviours needed and take a long hard look at yourself and decide whether you are a good fit at present.

Good luck.
