    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Currys PC World.

    Interview

    I only had a telephone interview. The manager from the store was on the phone, he was very nice and easing therefore making it feel that I wasn't being assessed and was just having a friendly chat. He asked me about my current job as a waitress and the role I played there in terms of customer service and if it was essentially customer based. He then asked about where I go to school and what I'm currently studying and my available hours due to being in school on weekdays. It was all just general information and I have been invited for an interview on Monday.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Currys PC World (Birmingham, England) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I did completed the online application (although I didn’t do the test required afterwards). I received a call from one of the store managers about two weeks later (be prepared to answer questions about the role you’ve applied for). I was then invited for a 1 to 1 interview the next day. The interviewer was extremely chatty and laid back, questions about hobbies, previous experience, availability etc. I then had to go on the shop floor for 10 minutes and ask customers some question and I was quite pleased at how confident I was approaching them. Overall it was a very good experience, just waiting to hopefully hear back from the store.
