Recommended Posts

I have a interview at Marks n Sparks next week and I have come to the conclusion that i'm in need of help.Could you lot help me answer these questions please. You dont have to answer all of them. But help would be much appreciated so I can memorise for next week lol.Thank you in advance.*Why do you want to work here?*Why do you think you are suited to this job?*Tell me an example of when you have shown leadership. *Tell me an example of when you have shown initiative. (I have no idea if that is the correct spelling! You know what word I mean though!)*Tell me an example of when you have been a team player.*Do you work well with individuals or with groups?*Will you be able to adapt to a working environment?*Why should the company employee you?

They asked me about previous work (i had none) and i told them id worked in a shop my uncle owns then they asked a quetion later on in the interview about why i would be suitable for the job - i said, eventhough i have no previous work experience i still think im suitable because i learn things quickly etcThey then clocked about me syain i worked for my uncle, they just asked me about that - i felt like getting up and just walkin home lol

Not really.More maths, english and problem solving tests, but I haven't been for a retail job in ages. My bro used to work there not too long ago so i'll see if he remebers what they asked him.
