Challenge them to an arm wrestle, say you have to record the interview in case they are transmitting codes, wear borat's bikini, you know, all the usual job interview stuff.

dont shake your legs or do any nervous habits, dress nice (black or blue. maybe a white dress shirt and black slacks) make sure you make eye contact

Just be calm, confident and tell them why you should get the job!

Hey,

i remember my first interview, it was with a really fit blonde 20 odd year old. ill be honest ive never been more nervous in my life, but i just thought this:

at the end of the day, its an interview, if you dont get the job big deal. there are others out there.

when you go for it, try and put a smile on your face and act cheerfull and freindly, this will make it alot easier for you and the interviewer.

i swear alot, but i dont find it hard not to swear. im guessing you wont be a situation where you feel you need to swear!

look tidy, if you get the job you will be representing them on the shop floor, so if you go in looking like a tramp, chances are they will take one look and say no!

erm thats it really, they might ask you where you have use certain skills before, such as were have you use comminucation skills to lead a team or some crap. just think of some examples the night before.

and remember, its not the end of the world. there are millions of jobs out there, so dont think this is your last chance

just my 2p

You're incapable of being polite, dressing nicely and not swearing? What, did you grow up in a cave? Those things matter in society. Especially when you want to make a good first impression.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

Firm Handshake. Also wink at the interviewer at some point during the interview. Worked for me.

actually i grew up in my house and was incapable of crossing the street due to over protective parents


What if they throw a curveball question like

"if 2 customers grab the last shrit on sale and come to you for help, what do you do?"

how am i supposed to answer something like that without making it look like i have to think about it?

EDIT: also, do i gota cut/trim my hair? it relatively long compared to everyone i know... would it higher my chances of being hired?

if youve got long hair and it you wash it, itll be alright lol

lol seriously, if you look tidy that will do. i wouldnt worry about cutting your hair.

if they asked you a question like that, just say something like you would try to reason with the customers and if they still werent happy you would contact management.
first, say you would check for stock in the back first...then say the above...

Try and be enthusiastic about the job too...even if you're not really too keen.

If you demonstrate to them that you really want to work for them you're half way there.

If he asks a question like that, you say you will contact the manager. You are NOT allowed to make decisions with complaints and such.


and sadly yes, you have to cut your hair. I applied at many places, but it wasnt until I cut my hair did i get past an interview. Just cut it so it about 5 or so cm out of your eyes, then let it grow back. usually the rule is it can't touch your shirt collar...

Exactly. If you properly wash it and it doesn't look like it's disgusting, you should be fine. Especially on something like K-Mart. I would understand if it was some business thing but it's not.

think about what you actually want from a job and a working environment and bring your own questions. this is the job market equivalent of playing hard to get. do a bit of background research so you know essentially who you're working for. don't be late and be polite etc.

Punny nonce words are bad in general, but especially when related to topics that people generally don't like.

Brony
everypony
fursecution
fursona

etc

Also anything traditionally considered feminine that has the prefix man- added at the beginning to make it more "masculine" sounding is pretty bad like man-bag, man-bun, etc if you want to count those as compound words.
