    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Perfume Shop (United Kingdom)

    Interview

    Group interview of 3 people, followed by a second one-to-one sit down interview. We were asked to design and then pitch an original fragrance, if you've not had much experience with perfume look up some well-known ones to get the general vibe of how to describe the notes. Second interview was very straight forward customer service related questions, although the company are really hung up on your availablity, so they asked a lot of questions about that even for a low hours contract.
    Interview

    Give an example of a time you delivered great customer service.

Does The Perfume Shop offer unlimited holiday?

...The company have been for a number of years getting rid of certain things (abolishing lieu time and double time pay for bank holidays etc) and the final straw was getting rid of all deputies apart from the so called top 27 , so basically they have cut hours from 37.5 to some cases 21 or less, cut our hourly rate and we are still essentially doing exactly the same as before!!...
