In the role of hiring many people, I'm not sure of the paintball answers, but there are general guidelines. No matter your background, you need to be confident.
Your resume should be adjusted to fit the job. i.e. you should send a different resume for each different job type.
All of your answers in a positive manner. i.e. Your weakness is a strength. "I just can't leave a job unfinished, and have to work on it all evening til it's done."
And ask questions, It shoudl be that you are not asking for the job, the employer is asking you to work there. Now don't ask for days off or something personnal, but maybe, "will I have the opportunity to take training courses to help me be a better employee?"
Hope that helps. Good luck!

If you are there for a 3 week work experience and you want to stay on after it will not be based much on your resume.

As an employer he will be looking more at how you handled yourself over the three weeks.

If you were a good worker, getting everything finnished quickly, and making everyone around you feel comfortable while doing it, then he will want to keep you around.

Also, you should show that you can be picky about anything safety related. (this doesn't mean be a jerk about it, just picky)

hope this helps, and have fun!
