    So I have an interview for a JD Sports outlet in my area. I have had an interview with them in the past but I was unsuccessful. I would very much like to have some type of income to help me through the holidays and my University studies.

    Its fine to have a strong interview, but they tell you this while not giving you a chance, then there must be something they aren't interested in, or something we are missing that they need.

    I have had friends who worked for JD Sports who are the opposite of sporty as well, so they must have said something right.

    Any advice at all would be fantastic.

    A good way to prepare is to research on Glassdoor and find previous candidates who posted reviews of their interview.

    Make sure you research the company and the role and come up with examples to back up answers. These could range from school, uni, work or any extracurricular activities you have taken part in.

    I work at JD sports myself and I would suggest going in with a positive yet professional attitude. You need to be approachable and confident. If you’re shy or really awkward they won’t take a shine to you. If you know what you’re doing, appear eager and interested and are lively but dedicated you stand a fair chance in being noticed. When they ask you examples about the job role make sure you know what you’re talking about. Make sure you’ve researched and spoke it over in your head about how you would deal with customers as they often ask you different scenarios. Hope this helps a little.

    Does anyone know what number do you right on your pay sheet at the end of the week?
