Dress nice, Give a good white mans handshake, Use good vocabulary, Fold up paper towels and put in your pits if you are a sweaty nervous guy. Most of it is common sense.

If its at a movie theatre then no worries. Assuming you're gonna be sweeping floors or taking the ticket stand it should be easy to get the job

I laughed so hard when I saw give a good white mans handshake.

hahah yeah...ibanez's tip = $UCCE$$

but yeah dude you'll be fine...you're a guru...=P....just use appropriate language, dress nicely (buttoned up, slacks, dress shoes, tie is optional), firm handshake, try not to stutter and answer their questions as best and professional you can, and you're guaranteed the job...

"Because I'm a hard working dedicated guy and love to sweep things.."

Yeah.. I'd work on the last part.

I thought usually if the interviewer says "They'll call you", it means you didn't get the job?

And if you did get the job, they'd tell you up front?

It happened to both my mom, sister, and friends. They all said the interviewer just told them up front that they got the job.

Don't act cool, just act subdued and willing to learn. Be polite, being nervous is ok.

for whoever said if they say that theyll call you meaning you dont get the job

YOU ARE WRONG

nah man jk but seriously you are

if they interview you it means there are other people applying for the job so they cant just hire on the spot, they need to go through everyone and weigh everything out

youll be fine dood
