First job interview :/ - July 3rd 2010, 10:19 PM

So i've got my first ever job interview on wednesday and im kinda scared! Its for Alton towers resort, Ride operator.
two things that are worrying me;
1) i dont know what to expect xD
2) ive noticed since getting the interview that the job i applied for was '18 years and over' yet im 16 :S why have an interview if the age is not right :/

any help or anything people know about it is much appreciated

I live near Alton towers! Awesome.

I think you need to call them up and say that you noticed the job was for people over 18 years, but you're 16, did they notice this? Because they probably just didn't notice your age. It sounds like you're not elidgable for the job though I'd probably call up and find that out rather than panic and prepare for an interview, get all the way there, then get told you can't have the job because you're too young.

But please don't whip it out in public and start waving it around.
And PLEASE don't try and shove it down my throat.

Yeah, you should probably call them up and tell them your age. They won't be mad because that was their mistake.

If you do go to the interview where dress pants and make sure that you do not wear too make-up or jewelery.

With most applications and resumes, they don't say 'what is your age' they will say are you above a certain age. Just go with what the others said, and call them up, and tell them that you're only 16. Who knows, maybe they will still let you go in for the interview, and put you in another position? Good luck!

Maybe they needed someone for a different job that you ARE qualified for.

But as everyone else has said, you might want to call them and make sure they're OK with your age before going in.

I would definitely call them and find out about the age thing. They may be able to offer you a different position that doesn't require you to be 18. I loveeeee altontowers! I don't live that far from it either
