I need help answering interview questions for my first management position at a restaurant.

If anyone can help me with this prior to my interview, I'd greatly appreciate it.  Okay, so I am in college almost about to graduate and I applied to be the General Manager at a fast food restaurant in my town.  Well, they called me back and I have 2 phone interviews to go through before they offer me the position.  I am a little scared because I'm not sure if I will be prepared to answer all the questions that they are going to ask me... things like:  "What would you do if an employee stole money out of the register, but you couldn't put your finger on who did it, how would you handle that?"  or "What would you do if someone tried to rob your store?"  or "What would you do if an employee did not call and did not show up for work?" ... questions like that, plus other ones.  This is my first management position and I do not want to sound like I don't know what I'm talking about on the phone.  If anyone could give me some pointers on how to answer questions like these, I'd greatly appreciate it.
