    Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    HR reached out and asked for my salary expectation, then tried to get my bottom line lowest salary expectation. And then further tried to get me to negotiate against myself to almost minimum wage — despite the job listing stating that they would prefer if the candidate had a masters.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Harvey Nichols (Manchester, England) in July 2019.

    Interview

    Very quick and efficient process from the online form and called within a few days. Met with the hospitality manager and was a nice and relaxed experience. He said that he will let me know In a few days and called me back for the second interview with another manager. Again just went over some points in my CV and he said again they will let me know in a week or so as they have some other candidates to meet. It has been almost two weeks and unfortunately I haven’t heard anything back and now the job has been re-advertised. All in all was a positive and professional experience until the end when not hearing back and seeing the job advertised again.

    After applying online, I was successfully chosen to attend an interview the following week. The interview went very well and everything was very relaxed. They asked about times in the past where I had gone beyond my role and how I had made a cusomterfeel valued. They also asked why I applied for HN. I accepted the offer, however this had to withdrawn due to an issue regarding travel.

    Buying Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Harvey Nichols (London, England).

    Interview

    Had a fairly informal first round interview, talking about previous relevant experience and why Harvey Nichols. After the interview I was asked to do a maths test on percentages and ratios. The next day I was invited for a second round interview and asked to prepare a SWOT analysis and to propose two new brands to add to the HN portfolio.

    I met with another buyer who seemed nice. Minimal questions relating to my presentation which was frustrating as I put a lot of time and effort into it.

    I was told I would find out the following week whether I was successful or not - the week past and I still had heard nothing. I e-mailed the recruiter just to check in to see if any decisions had been made, I received (what looked like a copy any paste - try keep to the same format / font throughout HN) response 8 minutes later saying I was unsuccessful. Which to be honest really annoyed me - her response was so generic and impersonal. I reckon if I hadn't of e-mailed I wouldn't of heard a thing!
