    Buying Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Superdrug (London, England) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online for the position, I was then invited to a video interview. After pretty much a month now, I have heard nothing back, there can at least be some professionalism on Superdrug's part to let the candidate know. The recruiter was very quick to respond to the initial online application, as soon as I did the 'video' interview, nothing.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Superdrug (Ipswich, England) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online about a week before I was called to come in for an interview. Took about 45 minutes and mine was with the store manager. I knew someone who had worked there so luckily I already had someone I got on with. Was a friendly interview, but questions were quite lengthy and were about my experiences in retail and customer service. Overall, it was a good interview, just be calm and confident!

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    VERY FAST PROCESS. Very easy interview. The successful candidates likely don't realise how hard it is to get a similar role - far more rigorous testing and experience required.

    1) Applied online
    2) Video interview
    3) Assessment (half) day - group task, individual interview, maths test, presentation.
    4) Successful candidates contacted 1.5 days later.

    1) Very simple
    2) 5 questions
    3) Very fun. Honestly I must say this has been one of the best companies I have dealt with in the UK. The department staff were lovely and realistic - they didn't ask stupid questions and recognised some of the maths test was actually quite demanding considering the role.

    The HR person seemed a bit....unkind? The way she spoke about rejected candidates, how she was proud and found it hilarious when people gave poor answers and she rejected them - actually laughing out loud about it. I would be shocked if she didn't lie about candidates behaviour to the department staff simply because she didn't like them for whatever reason despite never having to speak with them once they started working there. She did not present the company well in person.

    This was a job I was genuinely sad I didn't get. I wish the chosen candidates the best of luck as it seemed like a wonderful environment and very supportive team.
