    Apart from your qualification which i believe would not even matter if you're going for this type of job, but in order to be successful at getting one you'll need to have a personality that stands out, quick thinker, outgoing type, able to work and conduct yourself in a proffessional individual and team working manner.
    Yeah OK, I know that is a typical part of the Job Spec but how do I show it and prove it on an application form without sounding trite and prove that I am being serious and not just saying it to impress them?

    To those who have worked in a cafe place before, please tell me how did you get the job? Think back and remember what you said or did on your application form and interview to convince them.

    Weird. My local Starbucks and McDonalds are still looking for people
    So are mine but soooo many people apply for 1 stingy job. The McD's jobs (about 1 or 2 of them) we're taken off the website within a day.

    My application was rejected, don't know why :confused: they said it's their policy not to give reasons. My Costa Coffee app also failed due to high competition.

    Thing is though, for the McDonald's job which I was point blank rejected from, they interviewed my friend who has less qualifications and experience than myself - she isn't at university though. Maybe they thought she was more likely to work there longer :dontknow:. Gah, I hate job searching .

    Yeah, or if you live close, you get higher up the list.
    I lied, and said my grandparent's address like really late on. And I got in ;D
    It's nothing special though, gets old and boring in a couple months.


    oh and :mmm:...NO. Not in that way.
