Hi

I work in big supermarket as t/leader and occasionally stand in as supervisor and I have sat in interviews and questions varies from person to person.

They don't ask you to describe a time you been honest but you never know what they will ask you.


They will ask you :-
Why do you want to work with them
Have you any previous retail experience although not necessary
What can you offer as part of a team member.
What days / time etc are you available to work if offered job

-What do you know about home bargains retail business .
-Tell us about a time you were helpful/a team leader/hard working ( if any previous experience ok ).
-What did you like/dislike about your last job.

Plus you can ask questions to.

I currently work here since Feb.
From what I remember, when you arrive they give you a sheet to fill in and it's just saying what's on your CV, address, work history, references etcetc. But it asks you "why you want to work there", "what you know about the company". I don't really remember what was asked when he looked it over, it was a very short interview - a few minutes long. I'd been working with a production company and previous to that, in retail so I mentioned I wanted to get back into retail again.
They do ask you to be flexible with your hours, in my store it's 5am start for the fill shift (if your store does a fill shift in the morning, I know another colleagues has hers at night) to 9pm and when you do your hours, most times you won't get out on time but if you have other commitmnets, it should be fine anyway.

To answer this, describe the skills that you have that would better your friend (if they were also applying).
Examples could be: I have a qualification in customer service teambuilding, or 'I have shown excellence in delivering a fantastic customer service experience towards all gender types and cultures'.


Describe a time you were honest

If there has been a time you stole, basically describe how you dealt with it, and were able to manage the situation from your mistakes.
