    I worked at Carphone Warehouse part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun environment to work in, staff are very friendly and working with latest technology. Opportunity to earn loads of money if motivated. Also chances to progress with brands directly I.e Sony, Samsung ect

    Cons

    Very unorganised, too many unrealistic targets and can be quite unprofessional at times this could differ depending on the store you are in.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Carphone Warehouse in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call a few days later from the store manager inviting me in, the place seemed chilled and a bunch of really nice staff, the assistant manager came out before the interviewer and had a brief introduction with him, interview itself was quite relaxed and I was just myself in the interview which seemed to work as a couple of days later I was offered the job.
