    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Kurt Geiger (New York, NY (US)) in May 2013.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Kurt Geiger.

    Interview

    Started well, they got in touch and quickly set up and interview. Interviewers were pleasant and was a good experience. However, follow-up was shocking. Was told I was through to next round (which never materialised) then waited 3.5 months to be told the position was recruited for internally in the end. Very negative experience.

    Buying Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    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 in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Kurt Geiger (Nottingham, England) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I took my cv in and spoke to a KG sales advisor about the position. I got a phone call two days later and we went straight into a telephone interview. She asked about me, why I want to work at kurt Geiger and then invited me to do a floor trial.

    The floor trail was for 30-45 minutes and it was just simply to see how I was with customers. --be happy and positive.

    I then left and she said she'll be in touch. She called me later that day and invited me to a face to face interview. I had the interview 2 days later and she asked questions such as who are our competitors, why do you want to work here and situations that you have worked in before. She also asked me to sell her a pair of shoes.

    Overall great experience. Lovely people.

    Sales Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kurt Geiger (London, England) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Very relaxed, came into the office and filled out forms including availabilities etc. We were then asked to wait, for quite a while - 30mins or so, the interviewees were then asked to move into the staff room until called. We moved into a spacious meeting room, where a store manager and recruitment lady where. Which is where the interview took place. It was fairly quick and lasted approx' 30 mins. Very friendly ladies interviewing. I was called back that same night by the manager of HOF Oxford Street offered me the job. I ended up staying at the store for a total of 5 weeks, however left due to finding a job that paid more. Very great team I worked with, however pay was fairly low - £7.20
