Due to me changing course and ending up having to do a year out of uni to work, im actually gonna have to get off my ass and do a hard days work for the first time in my life (sympathy please)

Got an interview tomorrow at 12 at phones4u (awesome shop btw), ive read up on the company etc and have my good suit (calvin klein) ready for the interview, I would appreciate any advice you experienced workaholics could give or any generic interview questions i may be faced with

*shudders at thought of working*

I think normally people say 'be yourself' but I'd advise against that in your case.

Yeah but I've never seen a phones4u that isnt staffed complete by utter scumbags?

I don't mean the odd bad egg - they seem to only employ arrogant toss pots! Being an arrogant but knowledgable git I like to take the **** out of them then leave.

Don't do it brah.

I think quite a popular question can be "what's your weak point", so you need to come up with some sort of answer which actually makes you look good. I've been asked that before in interview; I think I answered with something like "I'm a bit of a perfectionist". I know it's cheesy but there you go.

They might well ask you about working to a target, so perhaps you should think of an example you could give them, and also as they are customer-orientated you will want to tell them how great your communication skills are. I guess if you can come up with real life examples in advance that can be a help.

Good luck! A job is a job. Remember it's only for a year as well. Plus if you get discount that's even better.

Horrible company, horrible staff, full of commission monkeys. Used car salesmen are nicer.

Whats the all time best phone?

correct answer is Nokia 3210, you might get away with it if you answer 8210, which was also a gem.

Oh sorry to hear that forest2002, I think it must have worked for me (either that or they were kind enough to ignore it).....

I think if they ask you about a weakness you have to make it clear that you are aware of what it is BUT that you know you can rectify it and it isn't a problem that affects your work or whatever it is you are applying for.

You could say that one of your weaknesses is that you can be competitive. Then you could direct them to the cake thread on HUKD :D
