Sales Advisor Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in York, England

Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Schuh Limited (York, England) in September 2020.

Interview

It was in a group of five of us with two of the managers. It was incredibly informal, to the point where I didn't feel like it was an interview at all. They asked us a few questions but because it was only a half an hour long slot, they were rushing themselves so much. I don't feel as though they had enough time to actually get to know every one of us, and because we all had to answer the same questions, if you went last, all the 'right' answers had already been said so it made you look bad. They didn't even ask us what we knew about the company or about or previous work experience, hence why I think they didn't get to know us all individually. But they asked us 'what would we do with a million pounds?' which I thought was random, a good icebreaker for the start of the interview but because they were short of time I thought they'd ask us more work-related questions. We also didn't do any of the team building tasks other people on here have mentioned. We all had a laugh but I feel like it was too informal. They said you'd find out the next day if you got the job.

    Interview

    mine was a few years ago but you have to have a stand out personality from the moment you walk into the door. they literally know if they are gonna hire you from the moment you walk in. But we had to basically pick a show from the shop floor and sell it to someone else int the room. the you play other games like stop the bus etc. but remember you have to be confident and be bubbly.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Schuh Limited in February 2019.

    Interview

    Interview was super chilled out, unlike anything I've had in the past! It was a group interview of about 8 of us. We had an ice breaker to begin with and then in pairs had to answer a couple of questions and then present our partner to the group from what we had learnt. We had to give a mini presentation in groups about customer service - one group even did role play! And then to finish we had to 'sell' a shoe from the store to the rest of the group. Was a really positive interview experience, so definitely nothing to stress over!!

    Very casual group interview, very fun and interactive. Got feedback if we wanted. We played group creative games, spoke to the managers. We got answered questions but not individually we went round the group. Had to draw a shoe and pitch it to the whole team.

    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.
