    I'm waiting to hear from an application I made for a job at a Three Store. I tried searching online for more information about them but haven't been able to find anything, possibly because if you type "Three" followed by anything in Google it shows you every page with the number three in it...

    Anyways, can anyone with experience working for Three Stores give me some information and advice? What kind of things do they ask in interviews? Should I show up in a full suit? Do you have any tips to help me do the job well? If I get the job this would be the first time I've worked in retail, so if anyone has any general retail tips that would also be very useful.

    As a sidenote, their website says that everyone who works for them gets a phone and a dongle. Would this be a phone of my choice? An iPhone 5 perhaps? :p

    Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me :)

    You're not finding anything because anyone who can is dead or unable to express their opinion without repercussions.

    What should I wear to the interview, is it more casual? That's what it says on their site.

    They'll pay my bills? Sounds good to me! What type of phones do they give out? :)

    Rule of thumb. Dress as there staff do as a minimum. Smart casual.

    It's an interview, where a suit. Make sure you take your CV and any certificates you have. Turn up early and when he or she asks you if you have any questions do not ask the following
    How many free minutes do I get.
    What free phone do I get.
    What about time off or other benifits.
    Instead ask him or her about the possibility for advancing your career.
    I have conducted many job interviews and this better than turning up casual. Also do some proper research so you can show you know about the company. Like for example if he or she asks you what do you know about the three mobile phone company?

    Mate I'm telling you, don't wear a suit I work for three, do not wear a suite. Just wear a smart shirt and trousers. Do Some research on the company, and ask questions.

    Would jeans be okay or should it be a bit more formal?

    I just went over the site again and this page does say "We tend to wear whatever we feel comfortable in, so the person you're meeting may be dressed casually", so yeah I believe you.

    What's the job like?

    I wouldn't recommend jeans although our uniform is jeans, like I sed before just wear shirt and trousers with shoes. The jobs ok I've working there for 2 years im looking to so something different.
