I would suggest that being able to do some research on the firm would be of critical importance.  If you are looking to impress the interviewer, I think that being able to articulate how you and your specific talent set would converge with the principles and mission of the firm in question would be important.  In my mind, it is not merely enough to say that you are a good candidate, but rather the right one for this position.  In this light, you would have to match up what it is that you possess with what it is the job and firm specifically needs.  In applying for the position of assistance manager, I think you want to also showcase how you can help management as well as serve as a liaison between workers and upper management.  These attributes will help in enhancing your chances of procuring this position.

I can appreciate that you want this job. Also best of luck! Here are some pointers. First, make sure that you let them know that you have experience in a managerial position. If you have a reference or two, that would be great. If you do not have strong reference, give them a reason or two why you would do a great job.  This will be important, since a past record is an indication of future performance. Second, make sure that you know something of the company. Do a little research before you go in for the job. Third, make sure that you present yourself well - dress appropriately, give a firm handshake, speak well, etc. These things are important, even if they seem small.
