I wish I could help you more with this...
A few things that
sound good: you enjoy team work, you appreciate the nature of the business and are willing to be flexible with the hours you work, you are a regular customer of the brand and know the product and its customers well.
Also, I think they will ask you the following in your interview:
1- have you ever worked with targets or goals / what was the daily target.
2- what would you do if an item didn't sell as well as we initially thought?
3- what would you do if you had a problem with a work mate?
Those three are extremelly tricky and can make the difference between getting the job or not. Unfortunately there is no right answer for them because each shop works in a different manner according to the manager. If you know somebody that has worked / works in Monsoon by all means go talk to them and try get them to answer those three questions and tell you a bit about the manager.
