    Hello ,
    I just got an email asking me to come in for a group interview / assessment. I'm really nervous as this is my first interview. If anyone who had an interview before could give me some info/tips , I would be grateful. I did do some research about the questions and how I have to sell a product/Do ice breakers activity and also do a mini presentation about myself etc. However they were a bit outdated and I wanted to know if anything has changed.

    Also What should i wear ? I was thinking of smart shoes , trousers , shirt and tie.
    Would i need to wear a blazer ?

    Bump : Also I did some research but wanted your thoughts on these question and answers :

    How would you make customers welcome? Greet them and ask them if there is anythingyou can help with and if not let them know or show them that you are there tohelp them whenever they need it.
    Why Waitrose? It is one of the biggest supermarket in the UK and it has great career progression which might be suitable for me in the future. Also it has a good reputation for quality of products and customer service.
    Time when you have worked in a team. (I have two answers )1) I participated in a charity week from school where I had to work and communicate with the other members to raise money for orphans and needy children's across the world and I had to speak with new people and work with them to make sure we raise enough and efficiently.
    2) I'm a very sport active person therefore I use team work skills daily. I play a variety of sports such as football , basketball , cricket and rounders where I had to work with my team and communicate to achieve the end result which is a very well experienced game. I was chosen for Young leaders sport from school due to my team work and leadership skills.
    Any advice would be appreciated Thanks
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
