    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Debenhams.

    Interview

    Did a application form which consisted of an aptitude test which was relatively easy. Within 30 mins of sending the application away I received an email to telephone their HR department for a telephone interview. The telephone interview was straightforward and the interviewer was super nice! Then instantly i was told that I had passed the interview and was given an in-store face to face interview the next week. The in-store interview was much easier than expected and the interviewer made the whole thing super relaxed and comfortable. Was told that I had been allocated a day that the group activity was not on which i was pleased about as personally i would prefer just an interview. Had the interview on Saturday morning and received the call saying I got the job on the Monday!
