I posted the question already but got only one response! I NEED THIS
Well, I applied a few days ago and just got an email about a group interview. I'm not intimidated because I am pretty talkative. However, I have no work experience except from being a construction worker. I will definitely dress nice as well as be nice. Have you ever been part of a group interview? What was it like? Did you get job? If not, what did the others do to set themselves apart? If you did, what did you do to set yourself apart? Whats the atmosphere like? Do they ask one question and throw it to the dogs (make us compete/fight it out)? I am a bit nervous because its a group interview and I am afraid that others will try to top my personality which is fine but I don't know what to prepare for?
I think I can top it with spilling the beans about being trilingual and that I have volunteered at places as well as an active member for a college program. Any advice would be great? Please I want to see like 30 answers because I want to have a bit of everything to pull from.
Also, if I do get the job, what would they expect after the interview? How are my hours set? I do have school in the fall.
Again thanks to those do answer with the intention of helping

i have been part of group interviews ( the recruiter end) a fair few times, this will be part or should be alongside an individual interview, sometimes the first stage. This is all about interaction, how you work within a team and suggest ideas. 'Topping' someone is however not a good idea, it shows dominance, lack of giving someone an opportunity to speak, just be measured, talk rationally and clearly and give others a chance to speak. They may have a group exercise to show how you work as a team rather than as you put it 'fight it out'. Do research in company though, the group stage is more how you act within a group, the one to one is about solely you0
