say your hard working, reliable, trustworthy, good at working as part of a team but able to use initative 2. Get on well with people, friendly and helpful....etc etc Also look online at the website find out a bit about the company. My perception on the store is its a bit more classy than tesco, asda etc but bit more expensive. Good luck with the interview, like others i worked in a supermarket 4 10 years and would never go back to it now but have many fond memories and made lots of friends, so had a great social life and made a bit of money while studying...so not all bad

if you get the job DONT get caught trying all the new products as they come in, we used to do that a lot at tesco but never got caught, lol

As the poster above has mentioned research the company.

Waitrose are part of the John Lewis Partnership and as such have a much different "set up" to the normal type company.
They very much pride themselves on being a Partnership so you knowing the background to the company and how it works will create a good impression.

Good luck on your interview.

Here's a couple of links for you:

Well done you :)

Reasonable company to work for but as always depends on your line managers. Head down, listen and learn and you'll be fine.

Good luck hdizzle. !!
