    Hi All

    I have an interview in Primark, and I''m pretty nervous. It's my first job and my reference is from the owner of a small hardware shop i did experience in.

    The email states that "The interview process will consist of a competency based interview to assess your skills, experience and suitability for Primark.".

    Any idea what questions they will ask me ?

    When they ask you when did you work in a team, can you say in college on a project ?

    What would you say to when you overcame a difficult situation.

    The questions were all based on competency.

    They asked me

    Why do you want to work for Primark
    Describe a time when you had to change your communicative skills
    Describe a time where you did not achieve a goal, and explain why (this was in terms of anything)
    Describe a time where you worked in a team and how you did it
    Who are primarks competitors
    He spoke about my education and asked if I achieved beyond my expectations, and if so, why?

    Describe yourself in 3 words

    He asked a question about myself
    "Tell me something about yourself that I wouldn't know by looking at you"

    Advice:
    take an interest in your interviewer...ask him questions about himself when you can. When he asked me something about myself, I told him about my phobia of birds and I then asked if he had a phobia. This seemed to create more of a rapport with him. We laughed and exchanged stories which eased the setting a little
    Be nice
    Be genuine
    Seem positive

    It helped me I got the job!

    Hope it goes well for you
    Good luck!
