    Interview

    Relaxed and very much like a training session
    There was a group of 20/25 of us but we were split up into groups of five which wasn’t nice as you didn’t feel as if you had to talk over many other people

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at House of Fraser (London, England) in March 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was for 2 hours (time went very quick)
    It was a group interview followed by a 1-1 with a senior member of staff (application was for various hours for sales adviser role at House of Fraser London Flagship store). Very fun and informal, although dress code was smart, activity consisted of an icebreaker game, and then getting to know the candidate next to you and presenting to everyone what you know about them to the whole group.
    The group interview consisted of 15 people.
    After we were given more information about the company and a slideshow
    Thereafter called one by one for the interview. It went very well i believe, and asked questions about customer service and team work.
    Although my availability was selected for fully flexible throughout the week and willing to work in any department, i was given an email that i have passed the interview but there are no vacancies and my name was added to the talent pool for next available vacancy.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at House of Fraser (Cheltenham, England) in February 2018.

    Started as a group interview where we had different tasks to carry out. The first being an ice-breaker challenge, then we were split into groups and had to interact with our interviewer as if they were a client and then pick products suited to their brief and give reasons as to why we have chosen those items. This was then followed by a 1:1 interview where we were asked 3 questions. It was all very relaxed and enjoyable.
