    I have an interview at Warren James on Monday and was wondering if any of you have been to one before and what questions should I expect?

    Never been to an interview by them before, but I would expect standard retail questions such as "tell me about yourself", and your availability, as well as questions that probe your knowledge of the company and the industry. If the job position is part-time, they will also most likely ask about your availability to work as well.

    This is my first ever interview so I wasn't sure of the questions, thank you😃

    Ahh no problem! I remember my first "proper" interview (in which I got the job, in which I still am now) three years ago, and since I work in retail too I would suppose there is quite a lot of crossover. I've also been to two other interviews since then, and those questions have normally come up.

    Heck, one interview was for a DIY store and I told them my interpretation of the economic outlook for the industry (how unemployment rate is falling, economy is recovering therefore more people are gaining money, more wage increases, linked with new confidence in the housing market, more people looking to improve their houses, leading to DIY sales increasing - obviously a different scenario to Warren James, but just an example from my own experiences)

    Ah right, I'm really nervous for mine but hopefully it goes well

    Thanks for the help
