      2nd Job Interview, im shitting bricks!

      So i have had an interview before but this one is in a completely different league, the pay is more and i need to wear something smart, it's been held at a racecourse (I don't know why) In a executive room, im going to be working as sales assistant in a big store, the pay is Ł6.50 an hour which is great being im 16, but what do you think they will ask me? Im not really a confident person and i have a damn problem with blushing, which is a damn pain in the backside..ahhhhhhhh It's on wednesday, how long do you reckon it will take?

      They might ask you how you are with people, do you have any other experiance in that kind of stuff, why they should hire you, etc. Good luck!

      For 6.50, the only requirement will basically be that you aren't doing crack.

      meh tbh for under 18's £6.50..so bout what $10? an hour is very good. I am im 17 and i earn £4.80, working in a supermarket, i know friends who are paid even less then me(not by much but still, although one is like £3.40 ouch).

      At 18 I will only get £6 an hour which for basic staff is pretty normal tbh, not enough to live on though. Obviously for me it's just part-time while being at college.
      Lugggs and cuddles and hugs for all!!

      Minimum Wage here where I live is $7.90 or something like that. Anyway, if its anything like interviews I've had, they'll ask you "Give an example of when you did such and such" .

      Yes, just lie your ass off about things they can't possibly check for validity on.

      Exactly. They just want to make sure that you aren't like covered in tattoos or have a syringe sticking out of your arm. Don't worry about it. The hardest question will probably be "when you can you start?"

      "Well I could have started yesterday if you hadn't dragged this interview out so long, you dumb asses."

      The best way to do well in an interview is to go in with the assumption that you actually deserve to get the job more than anyone else.

      The ability to happily respond to any adversity is the divine.

      Act like you really like the interviewer, as if he/she is an old friend or something. Laugh at the interviewer's jokes, have a lot of eye contact, act like doing the job will be a piece of cake and that you will really enjoy it, and never act like a question is hard, even when it is. However, still act like you mean business and that you take the idea of the job seriously. Make comments about things you have done that are like what the job involves and talk about how it is therefore right up your alley. Make sure you let the interviewer know that you very much want the job. If you get nervous, imagine the bizarre things the interviewer does when he plays with himself.

      Sure, Denmark is awesome if you're content to live as a serf.

      Oh, that's right. Being stuck in the middle class is called economic freedom now...

      Anyway...

      I'd prepare for all of those generic questions like "tell me a time when you worked in a team," etc. Or just kind of have a clear picture in your mind of all your previous accomplishments when you go in. You prob won't have many, considering you're 16... which makes those questions really stupid anyway.

      I had my first job at 16 or 17, and they asked me tons of that crap. I actually wasn't prepared at all but saved myself by appearing to be a nice person. Heh.

      I am glad like this really, and that's all that matters to me. I'm living a healthier and wealthier life than most brits and americans do, from what I can tell.

      Oh really? I just recently watched an interview with Noam Chomsky, and this is what he has to say:

      The interview was actually fine, i don't know what i was worrying about
      There where like 30 of us in this big room, and about 5 at a time were selected to go and watch a short video and make notes on the good and bad things about the customer service, i then had to wait 15-20minutes untill i actually got interviewed, then a fat old cow came and sat right next to me and i thought WTF FFS .
      The interviewer was really nice and i think i did quite well
