    Store Colleague Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Pets at Home.

    Interview Details

    Starts off as a group interview where you will be asked some random varied questions about past experiences related to absolutely anything (Pets, Jobs, Holidays)

    Then you are pulled aside for a 1 to 1 interview. Generally talking rates and commitments and just get to know you.

    Then if you are successful you are called back for a work trail where you will follow a store colleague around for a few hours and they will review you (This means nothing as it's more if the person likes you or not, e.g. as the worst scoring colleague in the overall thing was given maximum scores from a colleague who knew her, has no real impact from your performance unless you are amazing)

    Interview Questions
    • This ones tricky its more the one explained in the hiring process, general thing though with this company is to lie to them at first (Within reason) then change later. (e.g. I am willing to work flexible shifts) Just change it shortly after you start and complain about the odd shift   Answer Question
