I was asked only four questions and they were all situational. “Tell me about a time when...”. The others were “what’s your availability” or “do you have any questions for me”.

Tell me about yourself, why do you want to work here, describe a time I exceeded expectations, a major change to my daily routine and how I dealt with it, a time I worked in a team, a time I disagreed with a coworker, and how many days in a year I think is acceptable for an employee to call out.

Only asked me situational questions. E.g. "Tell me about a time you had to meet a deadline", "Tell me about a time you disagreed your coworker", etc.

Tell me of a time or give some examples when you were really able to convince someone - like you completely changed their mind.

How many hours I could work, if I had any vacations planned, what I would do if I came in to work and I had a lot of tasks that needed to be done and there was already a lot of customers in the store, and a LOT of situational questions. Between two interviews there was at least ten questions that were along the lines of "tell me about a time you experienced a setback" or "tell me about a time you had to work with a deadline" or "tell me about a time you exceeded expectations." So think of experiences you've had at other jobs, at school or with friends that could be applied to those types of questions.
