    Sales Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Colchester, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Colchester, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Schuh Limited in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for Schuh online (the application allowed me to really sell myself) and got a phone call 3 days later from the store manager who was friendly and chatty over the phone; my group interview was the next day at 6pm. As the three interviewing us had to close the store and cash up we waited on the sofas and talked about what college we went to, what other jobs we had etc., which made me feel more relaxed as I felt I knew the other interviewees before it had even begun.

    We had to bring an item which described us so I took a book about a photographer, which had inspired me to start a new hobby and take the subject for A Level. We paired up in the interview and told each other about our items, which was presented back to the group. Everyone was a bit nervous but it got us all chatting and the interviewers (Training Manager, part-time Advisor and full-time Advisor) asked questions to keep the presentations flowing, but didn't interrupt or anything so it was easier than I thought it would be. The next task was to get into groups of three and write down what we thought the 7 values of the company are; this sounded childish when I'd read that it happened at other interviews but when we fed these back to the group I was able to give examples of things I'd learned in my previous retail job, expanding on my team's points which seemed to really impress the Manager.

    The interview lasted about an hour and a couple of us stayed after to have a quick chat about availability etc.; the only days I had to be definitely available were the 26th and 27th December, which were fine for me.

    The Manager said she would let us know on Friday (two days after the interview) to let us know if we'd got the job. She answered everyone's questions thoroughly and I was impressed at how natural, friendly and informal the interview was.

    Sales Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Covent Garden, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Covent Garden, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Schuh Limited in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had applied for the position thoroughly at the beginning of the month (July 2nd, 2014) and it took approximately two weeks for initial communication via phone to offer an interview. As many will know, it was a group interview: really casual and felt like a huge "personality and individuality contest" in many ways due to nature of the stores' ethos.

    I had been communicated on the Wednesday and my interview had taken place on the Friday.

    I had then been immediately communicated the next morning saying that I was successful, between two 8-person groups.

    My induction will be someday next week.
    Interview was abnormal at first sight, due to what I'm use to but it was about time interviews were fun, casual and relaxed!

    I can tell I'm going to love the small family of employees, as there is phenomenal management team and great ways to progress alongside the best retail environment I've seen in a long long time!
