The first stage of the process is an introductory chat with the recruiting manager. For the second stage, I had to prepare and present a design concept. The brief was provided by the company was short and unclear. There were no brand guidelines provided neither. A very complex task, which was given on very short notice.

Overall the questions were not too difficult but the interviewer kept asking the same questions about customer service but in different ways so I found myself repeating my answers. She asked me questions about how I would apply myself in certain situations instead of my past experience.

I applied online. I interviewed at The Body Shop in Nov 2020

Interview

I applied online and got a phone call 2 weeks later. I first had a quick interview with a FT employee, then a second longer one with the store manager (both in person.) I was mostly asked some situational questions, with a little bit of role-play here and there. Was told they’d make a decision within a week but I never heard back after that. I got the impression that the company likes people who are sales-oriented and aggressive with their customer approach.

Interview Questions
  • What would you do with if one of your coworkers was underperforming?
  • How would you deal with a customer that refuses your help? How would you convince them to purchase something?
