    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Currys in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received call from the hiring manager a few days later where a brief phone interview was held over the phone. I was asked basic questions, and was then invited for an interview at the store. The interview atmosphere was very casual, and at the end of the interview the manager told me that she will inform me by the end of the day if they are hiring me.

    Sales Advisor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Currys in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I saw the online advert and promptly applied for the role. One month had passed and i had no answer at all to my application, as the status of it remained in progress. I've decided to send an email regarding the situation which ended up generating a phone interview from a manager few days later. The phone interview went so well that the manager invited me to a 1:1 interview in store. I've met with the manager and he led me to his office. We've had a extraordinarily good conversation that lasted for more than one hour, where we've really talked about a bit of everything, from professional to personal, we had a few laughs too. I've had a role-play test in store and was introduced to some of the staff. I've listened to some tips about sales, i was told about the training process and about the company's career plan and wage progression. My documents were digitalised too. By the last half of the interview it was becoming clear that i would be hired, or at least there was a high probability of getting hired, which didn't happened, and my application remains in process to this day. I've never heard a thing from them since that day. I've sent another e-mail and even tried to contact the manager that was responsible for the interview, but in both cases, unsuccessfully.
