    I worked at Origins part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Absolutely lovely job, amazing products, lovely company to work for.

    Cons

    Hopefully you will get a nice account manager. If your just part time it will make a difference.

    Advice to Management

    Lovely area manager. Supportive and nice. Keep doing what you do.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Origins (London, England).

    Interview

    First there was a interview online where one had to record answers to questions that came up on the screen. Then if you passed that they would call you into an interview. I found that origins is quite unorganised when replying to questions. The interview is like many sales jobs interview with the usual questions . If you pass the interview they ask you to come into a trial shift. Here they wanted you to go up to random people and offer them a free hand massage to try to get them to come to the origins counter and buy some products. The people who work there are nice however they said they would give me an answer the following week but did not. I found that they are unorganised, slightly unproffessional as they only gave me a response one MONTH later, this was quite disappointing as I had turned down another interview as I was waiting for their response. So keep your options open when applying and don't rely on this job if you are in need of work.
