    Anonymous Employee in Scunthorpe, England
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at PoundStretcher (Scunthorpe, England) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was the only good thing.... but do take note of what they are saying as if you are like me and having problems you need to back yourself up also ask loads of questions like overtime and when you will get a contract etc.

    • They ask you a lot of scenario questions and what you would do in certain situations.   Answer Question

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at PoundStretcher (London, England).

    Interview

    Brief and informal .I was a expecting a more formal interview considering the fact that they were willing to put me in charge of a store within a few weeks. I expected them to drill into my past experiences and decide on if I had previously encountered any of the tasks and responsibilities expected of me. Instead it was just a chat with a box ticking exercise.

    Simple interview. Basic questions. Not many questions. Really friendly interviewer. Quick. Laid back atmosphere. Not much to it as it was a temporary job.
