First you should do a bit of a background check on the company to make sure you have plenty to talk about. I went for a more relaxed and jokey interview to show my personality. Ofcourse this will vary on the person you are.

An interview with Marks and Spencer includes a role play, which will consist of yourself and a member of staff where the member of staff plays the customer role and you have to play the sales assistant. They will provide you some paperwork about products and you must refer to this during the role play to answer questions asked by 'the customer'. After this, they will let you know how you did and whether they would like to offer you the job. If they'd like to offer you the job they will then proceed to have an informal chat with you with regards to hours, previous employment etc.
