    Visual Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at BHS in July 2015.

    Interview

    Very nice interview. I was interviewed with 3 other girls, we were asked to create outfits on mannequins and analise different displays in the shop. After the group interview we had a one to one interview with the manager. This part was quite long as well: we were given more details on the position and we were asked many questions. They told us that only one of us would be hired and they let us know the following week.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BHS.

    Interview

    face to face interview
    No feedback despite calling and emailing - makes it difficult to understand where you went wrong. Not very professional because candidates spend time preparing, common decency to give decision/rejection instead of being ignored.
    Seemed to be positive during interview and encouraging about my answers and skills relating to the role
