I had my telephone interview today and I passed meaning that I have an interview next week. I was just wondering if anyone has had an interview for this role before and can tell me the sort of questions they ask?

Ah mines Derby. Are you going to prepare for questions about customer service too or just mainly stockroom related questions? When the lady on the telephone interview asked if I would consider any other role, I said I would be happy to work on the shop floor as a sales assistant so I don't know whether they would ask me questions about that too!

During my telephone interview the lady said that they are going to ask me similar questions like they did over the telephone i.e about the stockroom assistant role. Also when I received an email about my interview it said i need to researched into Debenhams.
Maybe you should prepare to be asked questions about being on the shop floor.

Basic questions such as;
Why do you want to work here?
What skills do you have?
What do you think the job will involve?
What experience do you have?
Do you work well with others?

Then she'll tell you straight after if you are successful. I think if you haven't passed then she'll say that they will contact to on a later date if you've got through or not.
Don't worry, it's quite simple, I'd suggest having a few notes in front of you.

-started off with do you have the right to work in the UK etc
-what do you think the job role involves
-what experience do you have
-what are the required skills for the job role
-what extra service do debenhams offer e.g click and collect
- asked questions about working in a team

my advice is look at the job description for the role on the debenhams website and basically all the questions they are going to ask you, the answers are in that job description. Make notes and have them in front of you.
