    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Next (UK) in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Initially my friend applied for a job and got an interview, she was offered the position at the end of the interview on the same day so, as I was keen for a job, I applied that evening. I was phoned a few days later for interview the next day. My interview was very brief and I was asked the usual previous customer service experience, dealing with a problem and as part of a team and why I wanted to work for the company. I was offered the position straight after, filled in my payment details right there and then and had my induction a few days later.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Next (UK) in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    Firstly we were put into groups and had to do tasks. After that it was 1:1 interviews. As it was my first interview I was very nervous and as a result didn't get the job. I wouldn't reccomend NEXT as a suitable job for students anyway - my friend was on a 5 hour contract and they were making her work up to 35 hrs a week while she was still at school. She had to leave in the end.

    Shop Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glasgow, Scotland (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Next (UK) in May 2008.

    Interview Details

    I sent in my CV to Next and I heard back from them when they were in need of hiring people. I got a phone call asking me when I could come for an interview. As I was a student at the time, it was an evening interview. When I arrived at the store I was told to walk around and get a 'feel' for the shop. I noticed how everyone working there all had a position in the shop (i.e someone standing greeting at the door, two on the tills and so on). I was then taken into the staff room where I was sat down in front of the store manager and had a one to one interview. It all felt very informal. The only preparation I did for this was to think about my experience in retail already and I also looked into what kind of extras I might had to sell in the jon (such as store cards).

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Next (UK) in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was given a 1:1 interview within a week. At the interview, went over some of the online interview questions to ensure they matched up with those given originally. Was asked about the reason for applying for the job and what were my long term aspirations. Was taken into the stockroom and spoke with one of the stockroom employees; was given the opportunity to security tag and hang some clothes - speed and efficiency of doing this was loosely monitored. This was the last part of a roughly 20 minute interview. Job was offered over the phone the same day.
