    I worked at Clarks (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Started as a sales assistant and progressed to store manager - if you get in with the right area managers and managers there is endless opportunity!

    Cons

    Found that management were often far too laid back about poor performance and behaviour - senior management often had to pick up the slack for the rest of the team

    Customer Assistant Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Clarks (Bolton, England) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email telling me to attend a group interview a few days later. I arrived at the interview and was told there would be 3 tasks:
    1)
    2) Pick any shoe from the store and describe why you chose it
    3) Given a paper with a person on either side. Had to describe my sales experience with them- how i greeted them, how i found out what they were looking for, how i helped them pick a certain product and why, advantages of the product etc.

    Got an email and phone call the next day to tell me that i got the job and to come in the next week to fill in the contract! :)
