    Applied online and got confirmation of an interview on the same day of applying. The interview consisted of a role play in which lead to a 1:1 interview with a manager if you were successful. Role play was fairly easy as you needed to be in character and make sure you, up-sell, give good alternatives to products that the customer (interviewer) wanted, make sure you approach the customer first, make sure you are confident and also promote any offers in store. The 1:1 interview was fairly easy with usual interview questions such as why do you want to work for us?

I was told that the position had already been filled and that the only job they were hiring for was Cafe staff - agreed to interview for this instead and after 45 minutes he realised I couldn't work in the Cafe as an under 18 with no qualifications in food safety. Complete waste of time.
