Question First Job Interview! NEED HELP ASAP! - April 30th 2011, 12:54 AM

I just got a job interview tomorrow for the Captain D's in my area. I'm so nervous because I have no idea what to expect. Can you guys please tell me common questions most interviewers ask please?

I heard once that if you wear glasses your chances of getting the job increases because you look smart. I have glasses and have gotten jobs from most of my interviews.

Geek? Nerd? More like intellectual badass.

Really the best thing to do is act professional and let them know that you really want this job and will do a great job. Tell them the benefits of hiring you (example: you live nearby). And be proactive! If they don't call you back, call them! They like people who are willing to work for the spot

And here you are living, despite it all.

"Tell me about yourself."

Don't give them your life story. Tell them about school/previous work achievement that you did. Talk about volunteer work that you did. Talk about what you do for fun, that relates to the job. For example if you want to work at disneyland, say that you like to work with children.

"Why should I hire you?"

Tell them why you would be a good candidate for the job. say that you are a hard worker, you are willing to learn things that yuo don't know much about. Say that you will always follow company rules.

They will usually ask questions like that. However, they might ask questions such as;

"What would you do if you caught an employee stealing?"

Your answer should always be something along the lines of alerting security or a supervisor or boss.

I wish you good luck. Dress for success. Give a good handshake to the interviewer. Smile. Do not say Um, or Uh. If you come across a question you have trouble understanding, tell them to repeat the question. Here are some videos to help you.
