Do you know what your going to say if they ask you...
  • Tell us about yourself.
  • If your hired, how will the company benefit from your skills?
  • What do you bring to the table?
  • Do you have any references and may I contact them?
  • How did you hear about this job?
  • What do you expect from us?
  • What is you ideal position?
  • What are your weaknesses?
  • What are your strengths?
  • Have you ever worked here before?
Of coarse, none of that means anything if you don't hear the magic words...
  • When can you start?

WEll it went well, and none of those questions were asked. The interview was gotten through an agency. The agency tests their applicants and sends us to the jobs that we are already qualified for. This one I was particularly interested in because it is only 3 - 5 minutes away from where I live and about 1/8 of the way to my school where I need to be every night. So the woman who would be my supervisor interviewed me and it went well. We are waiting to hear back from the owner of the company. I may have gotten this job.

I also had an interveiw at the Los Angeles Times 2 weeks ago, but they needed much overtime that I could not do. And it was quite a long way away.

At the last minute (and I do mean the last minute) I called in and said I didn't want it. I'd found another job through my school where there are flexible hours. needless to say, the agency was very mad, they "terminated" me. :rofl
