    It's okay.. they will just all be there for a slightly different reason, I'm sure they will introduce themselves and explain what they are there for. You'll move mountains, in the words of the great Dr Seuse :

    Somehow you’ll escape
    all that waiting and staying.
    You’ll find the bright places
    where Boom Bands are playing.
    With banner flip-flapping,
    once more you’ll ride high!
    Ready for anything under the sky.

    Just never forget to be dexterous and deft.
    And never mix up your right foot with your left.
    And will you succeed?
    Yes! You will, indeed!
    (98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)
    KID, YOU’LL MOVE MOUNTAINS!

    Good luck to you, just do your best

    good luck to bretty and sheep xxx

    Make lots of eye contact with all three interviewers, exude confidence, do your research into the employer and job description, have a list of good questions on a piece of paper if necessary.

    Good luck.

    it went well I was in the a little less time than i wanted but i answered everything the best i could, made them laugh and was honest. Very nervous though and a very dry mouth!

    at the end when they asked if i had any questions I asked " how long had they all been working there and if they really enjoyed it". They all commented on how great a question it was and really swung things around a little.

    If i am successful i will find out on friday

    So fingers crossed.

    Hope yours went well mate!
