    Anonymous Employee in Liverpool, England

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shop Direct (Liverpool, England) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Assessment day- Consisted of a few of the current colleagues giving talks about various roles within the company, followed by talks about the company background, history, ethos, values etc

    This is then followed by a group task, which consisted of a scenario or question that is then discussed and everyone gets involved and then findings are discussed and put together and presented back to everyone, which isn't as daunting as it sounds.

    This is then followed by tours of the office buildings and the spaces, between one on one interviews with staff from the selected role you have applied for, you should by this stage know who will be interviewing you, as everyone is in the cube with you throughout the day and there is ample time to go around and network and ask plenty of questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Shop Direct (Speke, England) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Detailed and challenging interview. The interviewer had clearly done their research and came very prepared with where they wanted to take the interview. Questions were probing and took me out of my comfort zone on a couple of occasions. There was a good balance to the interview as well - it gave me the chance to really understand what I needed to know about the role, the team, the business etc.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Shop Direct (Liverpool, England).

    Interview

    Fairly quick to schedule an interview but once I had attended the communication stopped. Was told I would be notified the next week but heard nothing and have been ignored on several occasions since.

    Atmosphere was nice and the building looks fantastic. Hopefully I get the opportunity to work here in the future. The interview itself was great as I got to meet a few members of the team and learn more about a company I have wanted to join for years.

    Project Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Shop Direct (Liverpool, England) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Two stage interview - first stage was very good with two current PM's followed by a bizarre role play interview for the second stage. The company claims to be moving to agile but the role play was based on good old waterfall project management. The interview appeared to be some kind of trick where if you don't jump up and down and shout at the interviewers then you don't get the job because you "didn't push back enough".

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Shop Direct (Bolton, England) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was invited to complete a presentation and do a CBI. Disappointingly I never received feedback after putting all the effort and preparation in for a senior manager interview, After 3 weeks I chased carious members of the recruitment team. In the end I was casually told by the receptionist at the site the position had been filled. I raised my concerns to the head of talent and the site manager - to receive no apology.
