    Part-time Sales Advisor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Schuh Limited (Belfast, Northern Ireland) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call about a week later asking if I would come for a group interview. It was emphasised that it would be casual. About 10 of us went into the store after it was closed and the manager asked us questions about customer service and how to make it a good experience for kids but there was no pressure to answer, you just answered the questions you wanted to. Then, we watched a video on the history of Schuh and got into groups and made posters. It lasted over an hour but the manager was really lovely so it was enjoyable and relaxed.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Schuh Limited (Glasgow, Scotland).

    Interview

    I handed in my CV to the Menswear Store in Glasgow and got a phone call about 3 weeks later inviting me to an interview the next day. The interviewer was really disorganised - she mentioned she had a pack on questions but she hadn't went over them. I was asked the questions but she never wrote down my answers. Asked if I had worked in retail before - which I hadn't, but this was clearly stated on my CV. She took down my availability and the interview was over within 5 minutes.

    Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gateshead, England
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Schuh Limited (Gateshead, England) in October 2017.

    Interview

    This was a group interview, Schuh are very interested in personality and not your knowledge as they are able to teach you everything else so my advice would be to be really friendly to others in the interview. There was the usual icebreakers to introduce yourself. A group presentation about the ideal workplace , try to shine here and show how you speak on things. It then ended by being made to pick a shoe and talk about it as if you are trying to sell it and an interesting fact about it.

    Manager Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glasgow, Scotland
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Schuh Limited (Glasgow, Scotland) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Group interview, there were 3 other people and we were asked to bring an object that represents us as a person, or a brand sold by the company. Everyone brought something that represented themselves. As a piece of advice, look into the job role, find some traits that it requires but also traits you possess, and find an object that is similar ( a unique and possibly a fun object as schuh seem to be about fun and bubbly personalities)

    We were brought into a training room and then asked to talk about ourselves, what we do etc and a fun fact/embarrassing story about ourselves. Then we were split into pairs to find out how much we had in common with eachother, and the team that found the most things won.

    Since it was a trainee manager interview, we were kept in our pairs and given a scenario to work through (along the lines of people not doing their job right etc) and how you would respond. This is all about finding out your management style and there are no right or wrong answers.

    Finally, we were asked to do a 30 second "hot seat" on why we should be the next trainee manager.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Schuh Limited in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied on the schuh website and I got a call about a week later asking me to come in for a group interview later that week. My interview was at 10am, so I arrived around 10 minutes early and by that time most of the other candidates were there. There were supposed to be 15 of us, but only 8 of us showed up. Once we all arrived we were brought to an interview room where we played and ice breaking game, discussed the 7 core values of schuh and then we were split into 2 groups where we created the "perfect employee". Afterwards, we were told we would get a phone call if we were successful and an email if we were not. The day after my interview, I received a phone call from schuh informing me I had been successful.
