    Be friendly, smiley, and ready to chat. My interview lasted over 2 hours! They have a strong focus on good ethos, so read up on theirs as a company. Have they mentioned anything about a role-play part of the interview? It's often used, though not always. It depends on the store and the person interviewing you. They'll give you some notes to read over for about 10 minutes, then will come back into the room playing a customer while you play a customer assistant. It's actually really fun. Just dress well and try not to look too nervous. Good luck!

    Its many years since i did my interview and i'm informed by newer people that its very different including literacy and numeracy tests, so if you struggle with either of those may be get a bit of practice in. One girl told me she was in there for 5 hours! I'm pretty sure mine wasn't more than a hour, we had a chat, did role pay and i was offered the job on the spot.
