I handed my cv in to Halfords a few weeks ago, looking for part time work. They phoned me up today and asked for an interview. It's my first job interview so not really sure what to expect.

What sort of things will they ask? And what will they be looking for?
Also what should i wear?

Any help would be great, thanks

The questions they will ask will depend on the job you are applying for, what sort of role is it.

Just give the impression you're a complete moron who doesn't know anything about cars/bikes/anything else Halfords does. This tactic seems to have worked for the people who work at my local Halfords.

I'd guess that would be a sales assistant then.

I just quit my job at Halfords. They ask you about your shopping experiences, what you think is a good way to approach customers, what kind of sales techniques you've seen in other stores that you really liked.. all that sales drivel.

You don't need an ounce of knowledge about cars or anything. They don't care. I knew a fair amount about that sorta stuff anyway, even though I'm a girl. ha.

I wore a skirt with a blazer over the top, so quite smart. A nice shirt and black trousers would be fine.
