    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at New Look.

    Interview Details

    I handed my CV into a New Look store and received a call a couple days later inviting me to a group interview. The interview consisted of around 20-25 other candidates and involved various tasks.

    We were split into groups of around 10 and each group was taken to a different area of the store. The first task involved getting into pairs and answering the question, 'What is good/bad customer service?' One person in the pair answering about good customer service and the other about bad. During this task, the interviewer made notes based on our responses and the way we came across speaking in front of the group.

    The next task involved splitting the group in the half and giving each group a celebrity and a scenario. We had to go around the store and pick an outfit that was appropriate for the celebrity and the event they were attending. This was a timed activity and once chosen, we had to present our outfit choice and the reasons for choosing the outfit.

    After this, all the candidates were joined back together where the various interviewers went off to discuss how the candidates in each group performed. They came back after having deciding on the successful candidates and called out their names. We were then invited to a one-on-one interview at a later date.

    The one-on-one interview was very relaxed and was likened to more of a 'chat'. The manager asked me general retail questions about situations where I had displayed positive skills such as communication, teamwork etc. I received a call the same day notifying me that I had got the job.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at New Look in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I handed in my CV and was called for an interview almost immediately. The interview was scheduled for the Saturday. It was a very friendly and painless process. The interview was held at the store in the managers office. The manager was very friendly and bubbly and the interview was friendly, relaxed and informal. It was one of the most positive experiences I have ever had in a formal interview setting!

    Interview Questions

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at New Look in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    After a week from handing my CV into the store, I was asked to come in for a group interview. The store was closed for the evening, and there were around 20-25 of us altogether. We were asked to each fill out a form, asking about availability etc. Then in front of the group and three staff members, we introduced ourselves and had to share an interesting fact. We were then put into smaller groups of five/six, given a character to dress, and told to go around the shop and pick clothes suitable for this particular character (as a group still). Personally, it wasn't one of the best, or easiest interviews I've been to. It was long winded, staff weren't very enthusiastic or organised and I don't feel that the group task was a good way to show yourself off. However, I got a call about a week later offering me a 4 hour contract, which I took!

    Warehouse Colleague Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stoke-on-Trent, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stoke-on-Trent, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at New Look.

    Interview Details

    Simple online questionaire about previous experience and generic interview things such as 'describe a time when you worked in a team' followed by a quick telephone interview in which they ask you the exact same questions then an interview day (with about 20 other people depending on the day) at which they ask you the exact same questions again and don't particularly care if you give the same answers.

    I filled in the online application and recieved a phone call literally 10 mins later where they rushed through a few questions before saying 'great, come along for an interview next week'. The interview is by far the easiest, least selective interview I've ever been to. It involved a 10 question literacy/numeracy test at which you only need to score 7/10 and a one-to-one interview at which they basically answered most of the questions for me with me nodding in agreement.

    Anyone with any experience at all...and basically anyone who doesn't turn up naked and slaps the interviewer in the face is almost guaranteed a job. The interview seemed very much a formality and they had already decided who was worth taking on from the online application. They let you know on the day if you have a job and give you a letter inviting you to an induction the following week (or in my case, the next morning).
    I almost wish, having worked there for some time, that they would be more selective with their interviewees as it really is ridiculously easy to get a job at the DC. It seems there is no selection process at all beyond the online questionaire. They have no quotas to fill and will take anyone who passes the interview (I've been to 2 and never seen anyone turned down). It is very good for anyone who just wants a quick job and anyone with experience is almost certain to be taken on without hesitation. If you don't have experience, just answer confidently, stress how much of a team player you are and you'll be fine.

    After handing out CVs with cover letters, New Look were the first to respond. I was given a time for a group interview in which we were given celebrities to "dress" for an occasion; we had to chose clothes and accessories from the shop floor within a budget, and then talk it through to the interviewer and other candidates before individually being taken to a room with a senior manager for the more standard interview questions

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at New Look in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had to pick out a fashionable outfit and explain to the group why i chose it, it would have went well if the girl sitting next to me didnt pick up most of the items i did, then went first, so i didnt look original at all. I had a 1 to1 interview, and there were questions like what would you do if an employee was stealing? Why do you wanna work here above everywhere else?
