    My brother used to work there, you def need to go in a suit, its that kind of company. Just find out where/when it was set up (nottingham) although its now called John Lewis. Also prepare to get asked the normal question e.g. why do you want to work for them blah blah.

    Be aware that Jessops are a very reputable company which offer their employees lots of benefits e.g. fixed yearly bonuses/regular wage increases/staff discount/discounted food/drinks/sports clubs etc - so you could say that they are a very caring company and thats why you want to work for them. Also if its part time, get in the fact that your friends are doing poorly paid crappy waitressing and you really want to work for a decent company gaining customer skills/experience which will definitely help you to develop and become more confident.

    Hope that helps xxxx

    No im sure they wont do roleplays and you def wont need to know about cameras, coz they train you, but if your working in the camera department (which i presume u are) explain that you are interested in electrical equipment etc.

    Also again John Lewis have a great reputation especially with their staff being very product aware and knowledgeable about ALL the products in their department. So u could say that you like the fact that the staff are trained so that they actually know what they are on about - and not just blaggin it and trying to sell you the most expensive!
