    Anyone else applied this year or done it previously that would like to share their experiences: what the interview is like - whether they ask the general customer service questions (I applied for retail) or specific questions about the palace as well, whether you enjoyed it and how flexible they are with the start and end times of the contract?

    Thanks

    Hiya,

    The 23rd. Retail assistant, the same as you. Hopefully it won't be too daunting as they're mixing things up a bit with the group activity and whatnot. I think as long as you're confident and smiley you should be alright

    Thank you! Good luck to you too

    It said it when you booked the interview slot and also in the confirmation email they sent. Group task, one-to-one interview, a presentation and uniform measurements.
