    Interview

    The hiring process has changed. I was invited to their head office to take part in a group interview. The interviewer divided us into groups and gave us one interview question to which we had to present our answers back to the group. Interview questions were not difficult just the usual. Just make sure you do your research above and beyond and you will be fine.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kurt Geiger.

    Interview

    Handed a CV into store, had no experience but the manager commented she liked the way I asked to speak to the manager and personally handed it to her.
    Had an hour long interview then received a call a couple of days later offering me a job, on 3 months trial. However I believe they have updated this now to include a phone interview (which often threw people off as they had handed in CVs months ago and were expected to go straight into interview mode when they answered the phone).
    Make sure you look nice, as they definitely judge you on your appearance.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Kurt Geiger (Nottingham, England (UK)) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I handed a CV in my local store and received a a call for an over the phone interview a few days later. My interview was scheduled for 2 days later and was very relaxed. I waited a while which was nerve racking then sat with the manager. After the interview i was taken to do the styling activity where i had to pick out shoes for different celebrities. There is just the phone and face to face interview, if you're successful you'll then be called again to confirm you want the job.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kurt Geiger (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in June 2011.

    Interview

    New stores were opening in the area. Applied via website and got a call later that week being invited to a group interview. This lasted about 3 hours. Tasks included selling a shoe to the people in the room, team work creating a collage of the 'Kurt Geiger Customer' and talking a bit about ourselves. The managers and head office staff in the room eventually went outside and had a 10-15 minute discussion, came back in the room and read out the names of those they wanted to stay so they could get to know us better. The remaining people were asked to leave and told they would receive a call letting them know. After this we were interviewed individually. This was only about ten minutes. The girl who interviewed me was very nice and friendly. Questions were done via a script. Area manager went round the interviews being conducted and sat in on a few minutes of each. Received a call offering me a position roughly 5 days later.
