    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kurt Geiger (London, England) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Easy application via company website, received offer for interview within 14h of sending off application. When interview was supposed to happen Kirsty (recruiting agent) did not call or answer any of my emails for the next 5 days to explain why she didnt call me at the time of the interview. Only after sending her consecutive emails she responded and said the position had been filled. Extremely unprofessional and rude given that I had prepared for the phone interview within a day.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kurt Geiger.

    Interview

    Invited to a recruitment day with about 12 of us. It was okay. We had to do 3 tasks. An ice breaker; what is your name, explain your outfit and if you wanted to be a celebrity who would you be. Then we were given shoes and had to sell them. We were then given words from Kurt Geigers "DNA" and explain what it means to us. I didnt get an offer cause i didnt meet the "criteria" however i worked in Dune for about 8 months alongside a Kurt Geiger concession and did explain i helped out and knew how to sell shoes, i clearly met the criter. Very dissappointed.

    Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kurt Geiger in February 2017.

    Interview

    Have been receiving calls from the company for about 3 months offering me roles etc when I told them I already had a job. My job ended as it was temp so decided to go for it. Went in for a 'quick chat' which lasted about 5 minutes and then was asked to come back in for a trial shift.
    Came back for a trial shift where I was put on the shop floor and greeted all the customers, sold 3 pairs of shoes but then nobody ever called me so I called for feedback where she said I'd been unsuccessful and not spoken to or engaged enough with the customers. She hadn't been in on the day and relied on feedback from her supervisor who was off the shop floor more of the time or chatting with other colleagues.
    They definitely are looking for sales advisors who pounce on customers as soon as they walk in and which I noticed would scare people off. The main issue is the not contacting somebody after having asked them to come in for a trial shift, very rude and unprofessional. Hopefully they can learn some common courtesy and get in touch with people especially after having asked them in twice.

    Interview Questions

    • Past experience of other roles, the first chat didn't last very long and she asked to come back in for a trial shift. She was more interested in talking about mutual people we knew - not very professional.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Kurt Geiger.

    Interview

    Quite informal interview. Why you want to work for KG? Talk about your experiences etc. The follow up process is atrocious quite frankly and the HR recruiter should of been more professional by providing feedback (despite a few calls asking for information!!) on whether I made it to the next process . Which BY LAW , if a candidate is unsuccessful, feedback must of be provided which what they should of LEGALLY done. Really puts me of the brand to be honest as I shop there quite frequently!
