    Temporary Store Colleague Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Holland & Barrett Retail (Droitwich, England) in April 2020.

    Interview

    Had to do an application online which was fairly quick and easy, received an email that someone is reviewing my application a day later. A recruiter rang me a few days after and just asked me a few simple questions, was not a formal interview I think because it was a temporary position.

    Interview Questions

    • - Have you had any experience with customers
      - Do you enjoy working with customers
      - Asked about availability
      - Told me responsibilities and asked if I am comfortable with them i.e. manual handling ect
      - At the end she just told me she was looking for someone she is able to have a good chat with, so it was very informal but they were looking for someone who is decent at talking to people and has confidence.   Answer Question

    Store Colleague Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salford, North West England, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Holland & Barrett Retail (Salford, North West England, England) in September 2019.

    Interview

    I had an interview at the Salford Quays store on the 13th September and I was told I would hear back early October. I had heard nothing back by the 10th October, so I emailed asking for feedback as I assumed I was unsuccessful.. only for someone to reply saying the role had been cancelled. I spent hours preparing for the interview and felt like it went well, for them to just cancel it like that. This isn't the first time holland and barrett have messed me about and I am done with them. In the end it is holland and barrett's loss as they've lost a potential employee who is genuinely passionate about the products. Don't waste your time with this company.
