    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at AO (Bolton, England) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Originally I applied for the Supply Chain Coordinator role where I uploaded my CV to the company website, had a telephone interview then an assessment centre. I was not successful for that position but ao.com kept my details and put me forward for the Merchandiser role. As they had seen me before and had my CV on file, I had to come in for an interview to meet the manager of this position and get some more details about the role. Everyone I met from the recruitment team and supply chain team were really friendly and approachable. I have never felt so comfortable in an interview situation before.

    Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Warrington, North West England, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AO (Warrington, North West England, England) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Assessment centre with personality questions. They basically want to know what kind of a person you are. Nothing to do with sales. Rather see if you're a fun bubbly person. Waste of a day in my opinion as it saved them the chance to interview one to one. I thought it was a waste of time and dragged out.

    Internal Communications Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bolton, England
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at AO (Bolton, England) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The Interview process was quite lengthy. After sending cover letter & CV, I was invited to hold a telephone interview, then a task was set, and finally a face-to-face interview at head office in Bolton, which included a tour of the office. There was a minimum of 3-4 weeks before I heard back about the telephone interview, then, a week between each of the next stages. I think it is important for employers to appreciate how my time and effort goes into preparing for each individual stage of interview. In my experience the process sped up after the telephone stage, which was positive.
