    Hey, I've got an interview for Morrison’s on Friday and I was wondering if anyone had any advice they could give me. For example, what type of questions will they ask and how should I dress? I've not been to a proper interview before, so I have no idea what to expect. Thanks in advance.

    I used to work there...when I went for my interview I just wore black trousers and a smartish top. They asked me why I wanted to work there, what kind of hours I wanted to work, what my best qualities were.....don't remember many more lol. It was really relaxed and stuff, so don't worry about it....hop I helped

    HAHAHAHAHAHA I worked in Morrisons for 3 years. Oh those were the days hehe

    Anyway, my interview consisted of the woman handing me my Application Form which I had completed, then she went through every question and asked me to answer them again. EVEN MY NAME AND ADDRESS!! She was like "OK, so why do you want to work for Morrisons?"...so I looked down and read out my answer that I'd written and she was like "Good "

    Idiots...but I'm sure it's more advanced now (maybe not...Morrisons is going down the pan, glad I got out while I could! )

    1. dress smart - as smart as u can.
    2. look fresh, smile and be as casual as possible.
    3. do ur homework and research on the company.
    3. exude confidence and show minimal fear or anxiety.
    4. go in answer like you wud normally wud to any of pals. And ask a couple of questions ...i mean do ask sensible ones.
    5. other than that ....be honest abt urself. tat policy actually works.

    also...keep ur ears open and try to get some hints abt the company frm people. But relax during ur interview. dont keep moving around in ur chair...get into a comfortable position initially. dont play with the pen in ur hand or play with ur fingers or crack ur knuckles. just keep cool. And dont show tat ur desperate...a cool and calm and sensible approach will get u the job. Never answer to the point and then keep mum. that doesnt mean you keep talking a lot. Answer but also ensure its a good conversation. and remember its not the sledgehammer that awaits u if u dont do well!!! :rolleyes:
