    I applied online. I interviewed at Matalan Retail (Liverpool, England) in February 2020.

    The interview took over 3 hours and consisted of an ice breaker, presentation, two-on-one interview and group task. It was a long interview process and a lot of waiting around in-between but they got back to me with feedback which was very helpful.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Matalan Retail (Liverpool, England) in January 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online then I had a video interview. Then I was invited to the assesment centre. There was a group exercise, presentation and interview. Presentation topic was given in advance. In my opinion the group exercise was a bit irrelevant as there wasn't anything concerning the industry or role I've applied for

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Matalan Retail.

    Interview

    I applied online, the process took 2-3 weeks. Once I'd completed the online application I got an email inviting me to an interview 4 days later. The interview is a team interview, there was 5 of us at mine and we started off just going around and introducing ourselves. Then we completed a task where we all as a team had to style two outfits from two different departments and then sell/explain our choices to the interviewers. We then did one to one interviews with the manager and went home. Took around an hour. Then called an hour later to say I'd got the job.
