    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Homebase Limited.

    Interview

    Started with a group interview, one thing we had to do was we were given a product and in two minutes had to present to the group and try and sell that product. Then had a 1 2 1 interview. This process I haven't seen in store for years though, and it seems now to just be a 1 2 1 interview

    Interview

    Interviewed by couple of pups that thought they were above their stations. Did not make you feel like you would want to work there, hence why offer was declined. Awful feedback from HR

    I was invited to an interview, this turned out to be a group interview, I was not told this which was very disappointing. We then had to do a series of group tasks.

    Store Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Homebase Limited.

    Interview

    Was asked to prepare a SWOT report prior to the interview and duly did so, plus a business overview, mystery shop and 6 month plan. Turned up to the interview and the report wasn’t even looked at. The interview format can best be described as standard fare from the 90’s for a team leader but for a £40k+ store manager role in 2019 you would expect a 2 way conversation and some flexibility to discuss experience and understanding of Homebase’s business. I wasn’t told how I had got on in the interview until a week later. Given this is the level of professionalism in an interview I think I probably dodged a bullet, especially with their current financial performance. Avoid if you have any sense!

    It was a relaxed and enjoyable interview for and interview! The interviewers were great and reducing interview anxiety while answering the questions they had for me.

    It's a standard interview question template and ask standard retail and personality type questions.

    I ended with completing a role play of scanning items to test interaction and ability. Got hired on the spot and it made my day!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Homebase Limited (Cambridge, England) in February 2018.

    Interview

    There was a short online questionnaire. I then received a phone call the next day asking to organise a interview.
    The interview was fairly moderate in terms of difficulty becuase the questions that they asked did feel like they put me on the spot a little bit. Perhaps I should have prepared myself for it a little bit better.
