    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Dunnes Stores.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed by a shareholder and HR. I'm not shy so wasn't intimidated. Took a long time for them to get back to me I had to make some calls. Interview was straightforward more about them assessing whether I was a cultural fit more than anything. Nothing related to my area more about my past jobs and my experience. I enjoyed my interview but would certainly be intimidating for some.

    Trainee Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Dunnes Stores.

    Interview Details

    Filled in online application on company website. Emailed with instructions to call and organise interview. Set interview for 5 days later at HQ. Interviewed by just 1 interviewer, nice guy. Didn't really seem versed in interviewing, asked no questions that would have given him any indication as to whether or not I was qualified/experienced for the role. Didn't even ask what I knew about Dunnes or their processes. Just asked what I qualities I believed were important in a HR Mgr, asked if I had experience in retail, if I was ok with working 5/7 rota and night work. However, he asked me my salary expectation and was taken aback when I told him. I was shocked at this as it is a question on the online application so I felt they would not have bothered interviewing me if my salary was too high. He informed me that managers would not earn that much and would I negotiate, I said yes, he said managers start on 14k per annum less than what I required. Waste of time, it was clear he had not read my application, took a days holiday in my current job to go in for him to tell me that they had no intention of coming anywhere near what I am currently earning anyway. Wasting candidates time by not screening applications properly.

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Dunnes Stores in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interview was relatively easy, no difficult questions. One on one interview with the head store manager. General questions about myself, where I was from, interest, previous employment and experience. No formal dress necessary, business casual attire will suffice. A few days after the interview, received a phone call offering the position.
