    Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Rotherham, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at T J Morris (Rotherham, England) in June 2020.

    Interview

    I had to wait and walk around the store for a bit. Then I was taken into the office. There was the store manager and the area manager, the area manager asked the questions and led the interview and the store manager took notes. The questions were exactly what I had prepared for after seeing what was on Glassdoor.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bristol, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at T J Morris (Bristol, England) in February 2020.

    Interview

    My interview meant to be at 4 pm and (was about 3/4 weeks after I have applied). I was there 10 min earlier smart-formal dressed. I have been left walking in the shop for an hour and 20 min. (They were behind schedule). The area and new store manager were very stressed and tired.
    I have applied to that role because wanted to start a new career and couldn't apply for store manager position because it's reserved to internal staff only.
    I have almost 20 years of retail Management experiences, business management, team recruitment-training & developmet, Multisite experience, sales & customer service.
    But unfortunately wasn't enough to become assistant manager.
    the negative answer has arrived Just 3 weeks after the interview held by the "area manager".
    I have then asked for a feedback to understand what I could have improved, I was told that I was very well prepared ( I've also brought a company presentation), but the company opted for an internal candidate, ok fair enough "I have thought".
    So couple of days after, a supervisor position came out and I have decided to apply to that, after few hour was rejected by the system.
    Not even the chance of an interview?? Really??? Your recruitment process is absolutely a disaster, you shutted you doors twice to a manager with two decades of experience... Brexit? Don't know, but for sure wasn't a fair treat.
    Probably he has seen an hungry manager as a possible threat..

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at T J Morris (Blackpool, England) in February 2020.

    Interview

    I arrived quite early so had a walk around the shop and then around 15 minutes before, I asked a member of staff where to go and they were unbelievably helpful. The manager found me after a few minutes and we went and spoke. The interview was fantastic and the interviewer was very understanding and helped throughout, whether this be rewording a question or guiding you.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dunfermline, Scotland
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at T J Morris (Dunfermline, Scotland) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Applied online, was a minimum of a 7 day wait then was invited to a interview online, picked my own slot. When I got to the interview was asked to 'have a wander about the store and get my bearings for a few minutes.' I was then taken 20 minutes later. Manager seemed nice enough until she was making me feel uncomfortable, kept repeatedly mentioning & asking why I hadn't been in solid work since December 2018 when I had already told her the reasons. I was there to interview for a job in her store, focusing on the future not the past.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at T J Morris in July 2019.

    Interview

    It took about 3 weeks to get an interview and over a week to get a reply. When I arrived the manager was in a meeting with other senior staff members and wasn't even told (by area manager) they had interviews, what time and how many.
    From the moment I entered I felt the manager didn't want new staff, they were just told he'd have to hire people. The interview itself was easy however the notes the manager took were very brief and not enough to give a fair representation, it almost felt like the manager wanted to see what you look like and then dismiss you.
