If its anything like my local CO-OP you need to be prepared to stop using deodorant.

What are your strengths and weaknesses (with examples)? Try to turn the weakness into a positive

Make sure you know some facts about the company as you nearly always get asked what you know about them.

Try to focus your answers towards skills that they will be looking for.

Good luck

Just look nice and smart, and don't keep answering their questions with ......errrr,errr,errr....

oooo.........and GOOD LUCK,hope you get the job (_;)

Cheers guys
So what, are smart black trousers and a shirt good? Is a tie a necessity?
Many people on The Student Room have said said they strolled in wearing jeans and a t-shirt and didn't even have to have an interview, and as I only gave my CV in yesterday I'm hoping they are facing some sort of lack of interest and will just hire me there and then

Perhaps when you show up looking smart, you will already be a step ahead of the morons that show up in jeans to a job interview.

Good luck.

(Suit, tie etc)

Cheers guys, went in and was pretty much immediately offered a job, starting there next Saturday!
He said something about £6ish an hour (can't remember exactly) but will that also apply for under 18s or not?

:p:p..............Well done !!!..............an hour goes pass quickly on a saturday. Easy money!!!

Its usually less for under 18s but if he told you an amount I would assume that applys to you. Well done. Its all experience as well. shows you can give customer service working in retail
