    Alright! This is my first post so excuse me if I don't get to grips straight away

    Anyway, I'm 16 and have a job interview for a "Casual Sales Assistant" tomorrow evening and, as it's my first, I'm kind of filling my trousers.

    I was wondering if anybody could give me any tips?
    What to wear?
    Questions they will ask?
    etc etc etc

    Thanks

    I'd suggest smart casual so smart trousers a shirt but don't bother with a tie.
    They'll probably ask the same old questions: "Tell us a time you worked part of a team." If you haven't had any work experience it's ok to draw on things from school. If you have work experience use that instead. Just try to seem confident, it's more about having good customer service and seeming like a good person to work with than trying to make them think you know everything about sports as you'll get trained up on their products.

    And they'll probably ask why you want to work for their company. I usually use the old, a family friend used to work for this company and said they are great and care about the staff.

    Hope this helped and good luck

    When I had an interview for Sports Direct, I just wore something smart
    They'll ask questions like 'why do you want to work at Sports Direct?'
    Just be confident, you'll be fine ! I've been working at Sports Direct for 7 months now !

    I had a interview for sports direct on the 12th, got the job and start tomorrow, I strongly recommend shirt tie and trousers, trust me, better to be overdressed than underdressed, when you first know who your interview is, make normal conversation as much as you can to make you less nervous, he looked at my CV, asked me things like, 3 words to describe myself, my hobbies and activities, things I enjoy, we did a role play about selling bags for life, I talked about previous employment which was at a charity shop, and that was it, he said he'll contact me 3 days, next day got the call that I had the job, goodluck!!
