I recently applied for a job as a shop assistant in my local co-op shop. I explained in my CV that I was 18, had my own transport, had no restrictions in terms of hours or days, had GCSEs and A-Levels, and wasn’t going to university. My application was rejected, anyone have experience with them or know why I might be rejected. I know that classmates work there, and people the same age as me. Thanks

If you want you can message me your CV, and I'll see if there's anything that appears to be letting you down.

P.S always send a cover letter with a CV.

It took me about three times to get an interview with the Co-Op! Don’t give up.

You need to sell yourself, e.g. great communication (customer service) skills, good problem solver, solid listener, and able to work both independently and as part of a group to complete objectives and meet targets. Good time management skills, and last but not the least, attention to details.

Outside of that a lot of it depends greatly on other candidates they have too.
