Tell me about yourself.  You don’t need to recount your entire life story but pick the most important parts about your work experience that make you suited to the job.  If this is your first job then explain what skills you have that make you a good candidate.

If you’re applying for management jobs the questions will be more in depth about your managerial experience and functional matters so you will need to give full answers using examples and be familiar with marketing and operational strategies for questions like, “What techniques would you employ to boost sales?” or “What is the best way to integrate new training while keeping the store running smoothly?”.
