I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at La Senza in October 2013.
Interview Details – I applied online, took three weeks or so, then they called to set up an interview the next day. It was a group interview ... they don't tell you this ahead of time, but there is about six of you being interviewed at once, and you don't all get a chance to answer the questions unless you kind of jump in. So although the interview atmosphere itself is laid back, it's kind of difficult to make yourself stand out in a positive way. BE AWARE: the dress code at La Senza is all black, try to match this for your interview. They like blazers and black boots. (Wish I had gotten that heads up!)
Interview Question –
What is your favourite store (other than la senza) and why?
Have you ever had a really good or really bad shopping experience?

Interview Details – Dropping off a resume at a store location is the best way to get an interview. Applying on La Senza's website or through another online job site means that your resume may not be seen at store level for a few weeks. Always ask to speak to the manager. If she is not available make sure to ask when she will be in. Best time to come in is Monday morning. Make sure you know why you want to work there. She will ask you! Open availability is key. This means weekends as well! If your initial conversation goes well she will set up an interview. If you are applying for a management position a 2nd or 3rd interview may follow.

However, my boyfriend convinced me to go in and I did and talked to the manager who happened to be there. I handed her my resume and she informed me that they were holding interviews every tuesday and thursday, since the holiday season was approaching.
