    Strategy Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    I applied online. It took two weeks in process. I got a phone interview first. The HR offered me lots of materials of their company and their insurance products. The interview went smoothly. Tell me about a time when you had to choose between multiple options, your thought process, and the outcome of your choice.

    Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cardiff, Wales
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at JD Sports Fashion (Cardiff, Wales) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I was called about my cv id sent. The lady said 'you sent us a cv about any management opportunities, are you still looking? Would you like to come in for an interview?' I obviously agreed and then later thought 'I haven't been told what the hours are etc' but figured I'd ask in the interview. I waited for half an hour before anyone saw me, and noone approached me during this time to apologise for the wait. After the interview, which was just standard questions (oh and she asked me three times throughout why I left my previous job... Like she hadn't been paying attention to any of my answers) I asked what the exact role would be. 'oh there isn't one' excuse me? 'we're just interviewing in case something comes up in the Wales area'. A joke. I don't know how they get away with it. I interviewed for a fictitious job. She then said if I was successful, (I'd be called back for a second interview in 2 weeks!!) I'd go to Manchester for a 3 month training course. Where I work Monday to Friday in Manchester, and then in the store I'll be employed in on weekends. For 3 months. It was a total insult. To interview someone for a potential maybe job that might happen somewhere in the country of Wales... Such a waste of my time.

    Part Time Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Newcastle upon Tyne, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at JD Sports Fashion (Newcastle upon Tyne, England) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Took a total of one week. I asked in store whether they had any job openings, they said I could bring in my CV. I brought it in around 2pm the next day with a covering letter (just to further show my interest!). I handed in my CV, waited with a friend of mine who already works there for about 5 minutes before one of the sales assistants came out of the back office to say I had an interview the next morning.
    The interview was alright, I was pretty nervous but the manager made sure to keep the interview in a conversation style. She informed me that I'd get a call if I made it and a letter in the post if I didn't.
    By the end of the day I received a call and was told to come back for an induction the following day.
