    Whilst I've not worked at Curries, nor any of the companies that it is related to, I do know about the 5 minute impression and especially the role-play thing, having taught people about it before at the job that I've been at almost three years.

    Just remember to stay formal, polite, and relaxed. Look presentable, and be as quick and as accurate as possible. Obviously, you won't know every little minor detail as you've not had the training, but they might say "sell product X to me" in which case you have to do your best to sell the product etc.

    But at least they have pre-warned you what will be included in the interview, to give you time to prepare for it - now it's down to you to research well, and in researching well, impress them as much as you can, even before and after the "5 minutes to impress"

    Lemme guess, "tell me about yourself - you have five minutes".

    Start off by saying your full name, the school/college you attend.
    Favourite subject. Why.
    Interests.
    Hobbies.
    Future ambitions.
    etc.

    And just appear bubbly! If you're bubbly, you'll talk for ages and ages and will leave them happy at your confidence. I had an interview in April that kinda asked the same thing and I spoke about the fact I was at uni, the subject I studied, how I'd helped do up my current house with my dad, the fact I've lived in three countries etc. and it left them impressed

    i used to work there. it was a few years back. My interview was pretty informal. They just want to see that you can sell. All the add-ons like cables, software, and most important is the monthly warranty payment. they only make £20 per laptop they sell, so all the extra stuff is the only way they make profit. Ask something like 'have you made sure you have everything you need today?', 'have you thought about how you will protect your laptop/washing machine from breakdown and damages?' , 'we offer low monthly payments'
    They want people who are not shy, friendly, the type of person to casually chat someone into buying something they don't really need..
    God so glad i don't work there now. lol
