    Part Time Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mile End, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Currys PC World (Mile End, England) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Very easy, very informal and laid back. Applied online and got a call back from store manager within 3 weeks i suppose. On the phone he asked me a few very basic questions ie what im doing now and what im looking for. He then invited me in. At the interview, we went through my cv with interviewer and started the job 2 days after.
