    Part-time Sales Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at H&M.

    Interview Details

    After many online applications (and rejections) I finally got a phone call and arranged an interview. The interview selection process is kind of ridiculous, they just chose people at random for the interview so if you get a rejection email, keep applying.

    The interview was approximately 20 minutes and easy. One of the women asked the questions and the other one wrote down your answers. We started off going through my CV, flexibility and they asked me to talk about my past work experience. After that, they started asking me questions like

    1. Why did you chose to apply at H&M (mention their collaborations with different designers, they will love that)
    2. Did you apply at other jobs and why would you pick H&M if you get other offers?
    3. Describe the best customer service (they want you to tell them how you will treat customers from the moment they walk in until they walk out)

    They gave me different scenarios that could happen at the store and how would I deal with them.

    Interview Details

    Friday was the day i applied for a sales assitaint job.it wasnt the first time i applied for H&M and was very shocked when i heard a reply so quickly. on the wednesday i recieved the call from the hr depatment and arranged an interview in 2days time on a friday which was exactly a week from when i applied for it .i turned up 15 miutes early but the store opened the exact time as my interview so i found myself waiting outside until i could meet the workers and find out where the interview will be.

    I waited in the staff room for around 15 minutes whilst the manger setup i tried to have some friendly conversation with the staff there but was still quite nervouse.i finally got my 1:1 interview with manager and i was aked questions like

    what qualities do you think an H&M sales advisor should have?
    do you know about the H&M lines?

    i felt pretty confident with all the answers i gave but i was worried when he explained that he a had another 6 people to interview and that he would be in touch with in a weeks time.he said he would contact either through phone call or e-mail

    4 days later i recieved a phone call with good news that i had got the job.and i am now to start in a weeks time.
