    It ll be mostly round customer service and flexibility I think so what is good customer service?, how would you deal with a complaint?

    Give an example of a time when you've dealt with a difficult situation ?

    How have you adapted your behaviour to suit difference customers e.g older people you might speak louder

    When I had my boots interview they asked why i want to work for them etc
    Then took me on the shop floor and had me approach customers asking if they need help
    I helped a customer find a new face powder
    Then I cleaned up some shelves
    I went back to the managers office and they said goodbye

    I got a job with Next last year, they asked me about a difficult situation I have been in and overcome. What I've done that I'm most proud of, what I could bring to the role, what I knew about the company and what they did and why I wanted the job. That kind of thing.

    Haha I know! Just took my time and whipped out a calculator at some points (oops) to be honest, I don't know why they do this because hardly any of it is relevant when you actually work there.
