From a small store in Baker Street, Carphone Warehouse started with a big ambition to bring mobile phones to the masses. To provide simple, impartial advice on all the phones and networks available and help customers to find the right phone for them. As we have grown to become a large company with stores on high streets across the UK and throughout several European markets, our ambition remains the same: to help our customers get the most out of their technology and guide them through the increasingly connected world.

Achieving our goals would never have been possible without our dedicated team of experts across every function and brand within the Dixons Carphone Group.

    Commercial Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Acton, London, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Carphone Warehouse (Acton, London, England) in April 2015.

    Interview

    First step was an interview with their talent recruiter before a second interview with the direct line manager. Apparently there would have been a third step with the group CEO which was already putting me off the company as it gives the impression that no one can make a decision on their own.
