    1 stage with the new Director of Merchandising- really good interview which flowed more like a conversation than having questions fired at me. Got given lots of time to talk through my CV followed by a few competency questions. Lasted just over an hour and he explained a lot behind the context of all the changes currently happening there.

    Graduate Scheme Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newcastle upon Tyne, England
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Fenwick (Newcastle upon Tyne, England) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Filled in the application form in December, by the end of January I was invited to assessment centre. (Check junk folder if you are expecting an email but haven't received one as that's where mine was)

    About 20 people turned up for the assessment centre, only 1 boy that day. They had held 2 assessment centres the 2 days previous.

    The first stage involved us all being taken to a meeting room and introducing ourselves to the rest of the group. We were then split into groups of 4 to come up with a slogan for Fenwick and present it, the whole task took about 10 mins and then a couple to present.

    Then then split the group into 2. One half had to present their ideas for a pop up store and the other went to do an hour long numeracy test. In the brief of the assessment day we were not told there would be a numeracy test. However, the questions were fairly simple, mainly working out percentages. you are provided with a calculator so it is fairly straight forward work but can be daunting as it wasn't expected.

    There was then a 10-15 min drinks break before our half going to give their presentations. We presented in front of 8 or so other candidates and around 6-7 interviewers. We had to present our ideas for a pop up shop within the store. The brief said it had to be 5 mins but in reality they didn't time it so it wouldn't have been an issue if it was over. We were not asked questions after as this would have given away what they were looking for to other candidates.

    We then had a small buffet lunch before group interviews in the afternoon. Split into groups of 6. Asked a few individual questions, then a buying task and another task similar to the first ice breaker task. Opportunity to ask questions at the end.

    Started at 9 and ended at 2pm. Friendly interviewers but seem very hard to impress. Should hear back in 3 weeks to find out if candidates get through to the second assessment centre which involves a more in depth buying exercise and one on one interviews.
