    Haha I said that about the British Heritage and all
    Yeah my interviewer was impressed when I was saying that
    And no, not yet heard nothing so far But it was two days ago when I called and she said that they hadn't even sorted out the interview dates and all so I guess I still wait which I hate :mad:

    By the way, how much would you get paid and what branch location could you be working at?
    Ahh that's good and that's really good! and aww I'm sure they will soon and between 5 and 6 pound an hour, i'm not entirely sure how much and I'd be working in the in Hull

    So basically the same proices ans all Prepare well and all. If the interviewer liked what you did, you just need to replicate it :cool: But i understand how you would feel, when you get there you'll be nervous probably

    Yeah haha and I have been don't worry I've looked up about Debenhams themselves as a company and the role, the type of food they sell and the facilities they provide for younger diners! The rest I can guess is just about myself and my experience, I can't think of what else to research, do you have any ideas?! or is that enough and yeah exactly, I will try my best and let you know how it went! but I am quite nervous I keep thinking about it and being like ahhhh :confused:

    I hope so it sounds pretty promising and yeah I was like my , there all under different headings too. and some of them where what would you find challenging in your role, when have you received good and bad customer service and what would you bring from that person to the job you're applying for, what do you think the job entails, how would you describe yourself, how would you fit into the team and what could you bring to the job! they're the one's i can remember they just like you to mention about team work and mention about your previous job and how you'd adapt well hope that helps!

    I called today again about it, and to be honest the person who answered didn't know what happened to mine and was confused, so he said he was going to get the person who interviewed me to call me as she would know what was the answer and all

    Now I'm not too sure

    Seriously that's so long and you should just by the amount of waiting you've done! and it could mean that, maybe that's why it's taking so long.. I have no idea, I was scared mine was going to be like that but even though there were a lot of applicants at where I went, there was a few positions too so it'll be okay either way for you!
