I have an interview at the Co-op tomorrow and I was just wondering what questions they asked you?

Cheers!

Probably generic questions, I doubt they'd ask you anything challenging, aside from maybe 'what do you think of the company' or 'where do you see yourself in x years'

Good luck I hear they give reasonably good pay for supermarkets.
O.K.

I did; all the questions were just kind of generic. They didn't ask anything complex or try any trapping things. It was pretty simple. They're a good employed too, although it took them a while to sort our my tax code - but then that could have been a fault 'Her Majesty's' rather than the Co-Op.

Ok cheers. Can I just ask what did you wear? I don't know whether to wear a suit or just a shirt with black trousers

don't know about that, my freinds who work there only get minimum wage and they've been there a few years.

I had an interview with them a while back, they basically asked the usual stuff and what you would do in certain situations (Irate customer, people trying to buy alcohol without I.D. etc.).

I wore a white shirt and black trousers, but I guess it depends on the position you're applying for. If you're just going to be a till runner or shelfy then I'd say just go in a white shirt and black trousers, if it's one of the higher ups then you might consider wearing a suit. If you are just going to be a shelfy and you turn up in a suit it'll look like you're trying a bit hard.

Cool. I'll go in my blue shirt and black trousers, I don't have a white one

And haha at "Shelfy", never heard that one before. I think I'll use that

Really, I thought it was in common usage. Must be a local thing.

I am currently sat in a coop petrol station bored out my head. Just say they're really big on the whole ec friendly shit and you're in. I wore jeans and shirt to my interview and got the job. But the one i work in is very very laid back, hence why Im on my phone. I can sit on the till with some of my music on, whatever i like. My boss makes me more cups of tea than i make myself. Which i drink on the till of course. I take breaks when i feel like it. So does everyone else. But you won't get it this easy. No chance. Its because it's a petrol station and not a main store. And i get paid more than usual because we have fuel responsibility. Its a tough job but someone has to do it.
