    VAT CONSULTANT Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Selfridges (London, England).

    Interview

    Was asked to team up with other candidates to come up with a brand new marketing scheme during the interview. Felt a bit like fishing for new ideas from interviewees. But overall, the interview process was quite interactive, and multiple senior managers attended, which gave a good impression on how they value potential employees. Can feel that they are looking for people with potentials instead of just paper-filling workers ( although that is what this job is 99% about).

    Interview Questions

    • Brainstorming and presenting a new marketing scheme/ strategy with details in 10 mins with teammates.   Answer Question
