    Shop Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chorley, England

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at McColl's (Chorley, England) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was a bit tedious I had a talk with the manager which was alright and needed to watch a few clips and answer a lot of questions this took all of about an hour, I guess you could class this as the training part? The interview was in a private place of the shop which helped as it was a personal touch and allowed you to meet specific needs.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at McColl's (Whitefield, England) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The male who held the interview spoke more about his football team he supported and himself for over 35 mins and then when ever he asked me something he jumped in with what he said it does for the question asked. Pointless interview although I was offered the job I think he just wanted anyone rather then the right one

    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McColl's (Hartlepool, England) in July 2017.

    Interview

    overall it was a very nice and had an unprofessional setting so you felt more relaxed, I was first told about the roll I had applied for and then asked me a set of questions. after that I was asked to do a very simple test involving maths, english and customer service questions. He also made me try to sell him a product from the store.
    at the end told me I was one of two people in his 'Yes' pile and then posted the job advert up again the next day.
