    Sales Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Currys PC World (Barrow in Furness, England) in August 2017.

    Interview

    My interview was very welcoming. We talked about my CV, I got asked about my hobbies and interests. Asked about what I'm studying at college and how long left I have. Then we talked about times and pay. After that he told me a scenario if he was a customer and wanted a laptop just for the office package etc etc. After that, he said that if we think you're successful with this interview, we will ask you to come in to meet the store manager about the job and to talk about times etc. So he took my details and gave me the job.

    Sales Colleague Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Swansea, Wales
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Currys PC World (Swansea, Wales) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I first applied online a few weeks ago and then received a phone call (form an unknown number) about a week ago. This call turned out to be the phone interview. I then received another call a day later saying I had passed the phone interview and if I would be interested in an in-store interview.

    The in-store interview consisted of some traditional interview questions, and then a role play scenario. The role play required me to look over a brochure of some tablets and then ask the interviewer a series of questions to determine which product would be best suited for them.

    Sales Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Currys PC World.

    Interview

    My interview was in four parts:
    - Online test. You use a slider to indicate how you would prioritise actions in a hypothetical work situation.

    -Phone interview. About a week later I got a call from one of the managers in the store. If they call you up to take your application further they actually ask you some interview questions there and then on the phone. Stuff like "Why do you want to work for us", and "tell me about your previous experience". In hindsight the call was just to find out how you speak and what your energy levels are like.
    ** be warned that the number they call from was a private number. It took me a while to work out what was going on and that I was being assessed.

    -In store role play. They get you to choose a product and sell it to them (although I've also heard of people being told what product they should sell). The manager who did my phone interview played as the customer and I was the sales assistant. The key here is to ask the customer loads of questions to work out what they need- not to push something on them. Ask them what they need the device for and give them some options. Ask them if they have thought about internet security- say that we provide that. Ask them if they need software like microsoft office, etc.

    -Final one-on-one interview. Mine was with the store manager and was a traditional back and forth about your past experience working in sales, working with a team, hitting targets, etc. This is also their chance to find out what hours you are available for and if you will work weekends and public holidays. As always in a retail role- flexibility will make you a better applicant.

    Overall a pretty laid back interview process. My interviewers were nice people and definitely went out of their way to make things easy. They don't want you to be perfect, and an extensive knowledge of their products is definitely not a must (you will learn on the job) but they can tell if you're the right kind of person for the job or not and how natural you are.

    **Also worth noting that they really favour people with prior retail experience. I can't be sure on this but I don't know if they would hire people without it unless they were exceptional candidates. Think of it as one step up from standard retail.

    As someone who was hired- there are good company perks, laid back working atmosphere if your workmates are good, generally rewarding and good customers. However there are targets and you are expected to meet them individually and as a team.
