    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Barnardo's.

    Interview

    Really simple. Got to the store, was greeted and then taken into the back of the store and asked some questions. The interviewer was quite nice. As long as you know the basis and values you should be fine, it's easy.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Appalling, frustrating and chaotic.

    I applied online and recieved an email asking me to go to their website to select an interview slot.

    When I went to the site it required me to fill in a number of additional forms before allowing me to proceed to select a slot (not a big deal but would have been good to mention).

    When I got to the select a slot part of the site there were no interview times uploaded. I emailed to tell them that there were no slots for me to select from.

    About 10 days passed before I recieved a reply saying that the interview panel were not available on alternative days to those listed and therefore they would not be proceeding with my application.

    Awful recruitment process.

    Don't waste your time.

    They ask basic identification questions, then asked about why I'd want this job. Am I good with talking to people, what retail training I had and about my flexibility. Just your generic questions I suppose.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nottingham, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Barnardo's (Nottingham, England) in August 2019.

    Interview

    Applies online through their own website and received invite to book an interview at the store the vacancy was at. They stated on the vacancy what date interviews were on. Only notified two days before the actual interview. Interview itself was about 45 minutes and was told they let all candidates know either way the following week. That was 3 weeks ago and nothing from them, very unprofessional and if they cannot tell the truth about a simple thing like that then I'm not sure I would want to work for them now anyway!
