    Hey, I gave my CVs out yesterday and I just got an interview for Monsoon/Accessoriez and its in 2 days :eek:

    They said it would be a group interview for an hour! I thought it would be a small interview for about 10 mins..I'm afraid I'm going to get grilled for agess..

    How do you think I should prepare for it and what kinds of questions do they ask in an interview?


    i've had a group interview before, it was pretty relaxed tbh... less so that a one on one interview

    (mine wasnt monsoon/accessorize) but i got asked the usual sort of questions- how to deliever good customer service (and actually got asked a store that i thought was exceptional), importance of customer service
    achievements your proud off, examples of stuff like your ability to be a team player/team leader...
    we also went onto the shop floor (when store was closed) and were set a 'challenge', i.e. given a hypothetical customer to shop for. wasn't a crucial part of interview, just a bit of fun really.

    my advice? be enthusiastic, if it's monsoon/accessorize wear an outfit that is fitting- well thought out, co-ordinated, smile and if there is chance chat to the other people being interviewed before...shows your good with people..
