    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Manchester, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Marks & Spencer (Manchester, England).

    Interview

    Really easy process - a short online form, followed by a telephone interview the following working day and an interview a couple of days later. I was told I got the job the same day, so it took exactly a week from submitting an application to actually confirming I'd gotten the job. Both the recruitment colleagues I dealt with were really lovely and down to earth as was the manager who interviewed me. After the interview had finished I got a tour of the building I'd be working in which was really nice!

    Technologist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Marks & Spencer (London, England) in April 2010.

    Interview

    At first, applicants who met the minimum requirements were required to complete three online tests including verbal, numerical and logical tests. A phone interview would follow approximately after a week if the applicant passed the tests. The online tests were not difficult if you practice enough, the phone interview was general straight but the lady did ask a random question about my opinion about the quality of their men's wear products. I personally think that their men's wear products were old fashioned and ugly so I had never bought any and therefore I was not able to give an answer.

    Interview Questions

    • What was your favorite subject in university   1 Answer
    • Do you think the quality of our men's wear products are as high as our home department products   1 Answer
