    Accounts Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burton upon Trent, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Holland & Barrett Retail (Burton upon Trent, England) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Inflexible over time of interview, no information for finding the location or sheet to park etc. Never gave any feedback after interview even just to say thanks but no thanks. Total waste of time and petrol as they already had somebody in mind who already worked for Holland and Barrett so a poor excuse for getting my hopes up and having to go through the interview process for a non existent position.

    Accounts Payable Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nuneaton, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Holland & Barrett Retail (Nuneaton, England) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by two women, one who had been there for 3 years, the other 3 months. I felt quite intimidated throughout, I definitely felt as though I was being spoken down to and the sly little side-eye looks between them were incredibly obvious. They acted as though I was stupid and couldn't possibly comprehend the 'workload' (it's not that difficult to do the same thing every day I promise you), and the main emphasis was on the fact that they were a HUGE company. Huge. So huge. Just really really huge and I couldn't possibly keep up with the amount of invoice processing there was, because it was just so huge. No, I'm not joking.

    Interview Questions

    • How many invoices do you normally process on a weekly basis.   Answer Question

    AREA SALES MANAGER Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Holland & Barrett Retail (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview, a face to face with the regional and then an interview with a director. I prepared a presentation for my first face to face with the regional and we went through it but the Director did not go through this. The director is more interested in how you deliver results and what kind of person you are. Overall the interview process was good although I wasn't so sure about the job after the phone interview. I later found out I was the last person at 6.30 after a full day of phone interviews. When I met face to face my opinion really changed. The passion and commitment to the company really sold it to me and I felt it was a team I really wanted to be a part of.
