    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    First of all, you apply online via the Selfridges website (Stage One) and if successful, you are invited to a video interview (Stage Two) which consists of a few questions asked on-screen and then records your response via your webcam. Be professional and let your personality shine through as the video interview is assessed to see if you're a bubbly character, which are what Selfridges look for in their staff.

    If you're successful in Stage Two, you are invited to a group interview a.k.a. Hiring Event (Stage Three) where you do a presentation about yourself and why you want to work at Selfridges inc. relevant experience. Interviewers (usually a good handful in the room) assess your ability to listen to others and how you present yourself, your passion for fashion/retail and communication. Few quick-fire questions asked and then you have a one-to-one interview. Will be contacted within a week.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Selfridges in June 2017.

    Interview

    Simple online application. Was then emailed a few days later inviting me to complete a video interview. For this, there were about 5 written questions you had to answer before the actual video portion e.g. when can you start, the hours you want to work etc. For the video portion, you have 1 minute thinking time and 1 minute to answer, again about 5 questions specific to the department you've applied for. You can't go back and re-answer questions, but you can skip them. I recieved a call about a week later inviting me for an interview with one of the managers, who was super friendly. The questions they asked were related to the 5 values of Selfridges, as well as questions asking about any planned holidays and stuff like that. They really do want you to do well and aren't there to catch you out or anything. A week later they called me offering me the position.
