    What attracts you to working for us?

    What skills and qualities would you bring to the company?

    What does the term 'good customer service' mean to you?

    Would help if you told us which company, to answer the 1st qts!

    It would also help if you gave us your honest answers to the questions.

    Why do you want to work for that company (is it because it's local? pays well? you like the stuff it sells? you know someone else who works there? etc etc)

    What skills and qualities do you have? (teamworker, problem solver, initiative, compromise, learner, communicator, punctual, reliable, trustworthy, hard working, cheerful, friendly etc etc etc)

    And surely you can think of an example of good customer service that you've had from a company? Something that impressed you (a delivery company contacting you and letting you know when a package will be delivered so you don't have to spend all day waiting in, a company that reacted well to a complaint/faulty product by solving the problem and being apologetic and friendly, someone who went out of their way to order in an item of stock for you by visiting/ringin round all of the other shops in the area for you? etc etc)

    Well known store, that you've shopped from and you'd like to continue to help build and mantain that image of a good shoop!
    JUST BS- it always works in moderation

    Lolz, Ive alwayz written sumthin along dem linez but i neva seem 2 get nowhere!! :confused:

    I hope you dont use your insane 'txt tlk' when filling out your application forms!

    Does it really take much more effort to spell words correctly (eg. write 'always' instead of the infuriating 'alwayz')?

    Rant over. Use your common sense; what is Debenhams going to want from its employees? The ability to work as part of a team, but at the same time use your own initiative. Responsible, honest, hardworking, motivated etc etc etc.

    Good luck
