    Had interview and was asked about former jobs I held, felt optimistic but was not called for a second interview. One interviewer asked questions while the other wrote down my answers. Asked basic interview questions, such as how you helped a customer who was upset. I gave several scenarios. The one interviewer was outside while I was leaving and was very optimistic.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at JP Boden & Co.

    Interview

    Interview process was a positive experience. The interviewers seemed to be looking for a particular type of attitude and willingness to provide the customers with a kind, positive attitude. IT seemed like they were trying to weed out anyone without good "people skills". They asked different questions from the normal interview questions we are all used to because they wanted to get a picture of the type of person you are.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at JP Boden & Co.

    Interview

    The Recruitment department got in contact and called me in for a 1st stage interview with someone from recruitment alongside the Hiring manager. After a successful 1 st round, they invited me back in for a 2nd stage with Hiring manager and the head of the department.
    The interview process was very relaxed and the questions were not designed to catch you out. Every one during the interview process makes you feel at ease which gave me a sense of company culture. There was no added stress of presenting or preparing something.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at JP Boden & Co (London, England) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was managed really well and efficiently. It was a two week turnaround time from my application to being offered. The Talent team also kept me informed and updated on my status. They were really friendly.
    They do use an online application form, which I am not keen on as an applicant, but it is really easy to use and does help them recruit people who are genuinely interested in the brand as they put the time in to complete the form!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at JP Boden & Co (North Acton, England) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Fast - I applied online and got a call a couple of weeks later and was offered and interview the next day which I took and later on that day I was called to come in for a final round interview for the following day.

    Encouraging - the internal recruiter was very polite, smiley and encouraging and the hiring managers seemed like great fun. We had a good laugh and I appreciated greatly that the manager asked me questions about my hobbies which I haven't been asked before.

    Successful - Since my final interview was on a Friday I was offered a job the following Monday.
