Farmfood interview
I have an interview with Farmfood on next Tuesday and I thought I would start a new thread about it to get some help from you guys here.
What type of interview and questions should I expect?

 Hi There,
Firstly, well done on securing an interview. Your CV and covering letter must have really impressed the hiring team! The first thing to remember with an interview is that it’s just that- and interview. It’s not an interrogation and I personally find it easiest to get through an interview by pretending to myself that I already have the job, and that helps you to relax and answer questions more calmly.
With a high street store they are going to be looking for someone who is capable of serving the public in a friendly and helpful manner, whilst looking smart and presentable. A combination of a smart skirt or trousers, with a smart shirt or fashion top would look smart.
Usually in these types of interviews you will be expected to answer a range of questions about working in customer facing environments and assisting customers, as well as answering questions about any previous similar roles you have undertaken, so think in advance of examples you can give of good service given or how you have relatable experience.
Just remember to keep calm in the interview and listen to what you are being asked. Be honest, and if you are struggling, don’t be afraid to ask for a few minutes to think. Research the company so that you know all about them, and be sure to have some questions of your own lined up to ask your interviewer, and remember, if you don’t get the job don’t see it as rejection- you wouldn’t want a job that wasn’t suited to you, so it’s important to be honest.
Good luck!

Farmfoods may conduct group interviews, as a lot of superstores do. I think it depends on how many people are applying for the job, as they may not have time to interview everybody separately straight away and so group interviews give them a chance to narrow it down a bit more easily.

If there is a group interview, you will probably be asked to do some activity so the interviewer(s) can see how well you work with others. They will be looking to see if you're more of a team leader or a team worker. Your skills with other people are also very important in a store like Farmfoods, where you are working with other people all the time and also dealing with customers on a day-to-day basis.

Congratulations on your interview. You obviously assembled a fabulous CV!
At Farmfoods you will be working as part of a larger team, so emphasise yourability to work as part of a time while still having the initiative to  work alone.
Customer service is important in your role, so experience of this is preferred. If you have no experience, fear not, they already know this. If asked about customer service questions, think about what service you would like to receive if you were in the scenario.
More importantly, just relax and 'enjoy' your interview if possible. I wish you the best of luck!
