    I have been working at Boots part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed and enjoyable workplace. Everyone is always positive and everyone helps one another, especially if there are complaints/ problems with customers.

    Cons

    Only Con is dealing with customer complaints, however, that comes with the job so you just need to know how to communicate and deal with people.

    No7 Beauty Advisor Interview

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

    Application

    I interviewed at Boots (Bromley, England) in February 2019.

    Interview

    There was 3 of us being interviewed at the same time but for different stores. The lady who interviewed us was lovely and kept things really simple and a chilled atmosphere. We were asked different questions then shown a mini makeover then had to practise on each other describing products as if we were customers. After about an hour we were taken to shop floor where we had to interact with staff and customers... after a short while we then had to find a customer to have a mini makeover, which will seem daughten at the time but was actually quite easy . After doing makeover we then had to look at no7 stands and find things that could be improved on !
    After about 1 1/2 hours we were taken downstairs to room again and asked questions etc then were told that we had all passed with flying colours which obviously we were all very happy about!
    One main thing is to know about the latest beauty tips... go onto you tube, Instagram and look at beauty magazines... you will be asked who do you follow and what beauty tips have you picked up on !
    Interview was just over 3 hours long but because it's full on time goes very quickly !
