    Get some sleep would be a good tip to follow. You don't want to look like a zombie.

    I had a group one earlier on this week too and I'm having the one to one this weekend so I can't really help since we're exactly on the same page. Good luck!

    I'm wearing a smart skirt and blouse. I think its best to be pretty smart for the interview since you won't be doing anything practical like the group interview.

    Maybe wear a suit without suit jacket? I know quite a few guys at my group interview did that. I think its better to look too smart at an interview (makes you look very professional and eager) than to not look smart enough.

    I have no idea, I'm guessing they'll ask questions like why do you want to work at ASDA, what can you bring to ASDA, maybe ask for scenarios where you've displayed teamwork, initiative, coped under pressure, achieved a goal, improved customer service (or helped a customer) etc so I'd prepared for questions like that but really they could ask anything.

    Ahh thanks! And yeah I'll try to practice some of the questions, I don't think it'll be too bad as during the magic session they planned the interview there and then but due to them not having enough managers they had to reschedule so it probably won't be that bad

    It might be different for each branch but
    Q1 - tell us about yourself
    Q2 - have you ever dealt with an annoying customer
    Q3 - don't really remember but was similar to those, was quite easy mostly common sense
