Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Boots Opticians in Jul 2019

Interview

Applied online, had to complete online assessments and found them quite difficult but managed to get through them anyway. They were based on customer focused questions and your personality. I was invited to a 1-1 interview at the store. Interview was very pleasant besides the wait adding to my nerves! I was interviewed by the manager and assistant manager who were both very lovely. They took me into a back room where they don’t normally do interviews and told me about the job. Then I was told they would get back to me by the end of the week/early next weeks via phone. However, I instead received an email saying I didn’t get the position and no feedback will be offered either. All interview questions were competency based and focused on examples of times you have done something relating to the question — quite difficult for those with little/no experience.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about a time when you had to deal with a difficult customer
  • When have you worked in a team

Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boots Opticians (Edinburgh, Scotland, Scotland)

Interview

Got the feeling that they had forgotten I was coming (initially from the interviewer having the interview questions on a post-it note, and after being hired, from a staff member confirming they weren't prepared for me). Had a little chat and asked some brief questions about competitors and customer service, nothing too difficult. After this I was taken out on the shop floor with another staff member to hand out leaflets and attract new customers.

Interview Questions
  • Who are our biggest competitors?
