    Sainsburys isn't it?

    Anyway good luck. You'll be fine. My first ever interview was with Tesco and I got the job. It shouldn't be rocket science.

    I think it's still Safeway at the moment but stocks Morrisons products:eek2:

    The thing which got me was the geezer that phoned me up to arrange the interview sounded really quite retarded:D Must've just been a busy day for him.

    Interviews for supermarkets are a piece of piss, they'll just ask you why you want to work there and what your hobbies are! I told the Co-Op that i needed the money! I think they appreciated my honesty cause they hired me.

    Yeah, the interview isn't that demanding. As satehen said they will probably ask why you want to work there and your hobbies. I once worked at Safeway and one question they asked was to describe my strengths and weaknesses and how these could be improved upon.
    Good luck!! :)

    Yeah they'll ask just basic stuff, nothing to worry about really.

    Good luck :)

    When I get the job on Friday then it'll be the end of 2+ years of failure to move on from GCSE's.

    I will have finallly moved on @ long last:) I've always said that 2005 was the year for me.

    Yeah, they had to sell some stores because of anti-competition laws. If there was a Safeway and a Morrisons too close together, they had to get rid of one.

    Safeway in Stockton became Sainsbury's.

    Any tips for calming myself down to be less of a nervous wreck?

    I'm lacking in the confidence & self-esteem department @ the moment :no:
