    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Schuh Limited (Birmingham, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Group interview. I applied online got a call for an interview a day or two later. The interview was fairly easy. There was a group there, they didn't except everyone tk turn up but I would say there was roughly 17 people? Anyway we talked about the background of schuh and then they gave us scenarios and then we went into groups and picked up shoes and talked a bit about why we picked them. Also we were told to take something that describes us and we spoke about that. A lot of people had make up bags

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Schuh Limited (Manchester City Centre, England (UK)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online 2 weeks ago, received a phone call after 3-4 days and was invited for a group interview the following week. Arrived at the store for 7pm and there was around 7 more people including myself, was a very relaxed environment and staff made you feel comfortable. Store manager told us abit about the role and asked a few questions to the group regarding what we know about the company (do a bit of research haha), then we were split into groups to do tasks related to the role. The tasks were revolved around problem solving and team work, it dosent really matter if you get any task right or wrong as my group did get a task wrong, they look for your involvement in the task and how you work with your team so don't be shy. We were told about what the company offers and if we were successful we would hear back within 24 hours. The interview lasted around 45-50 minutes.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Schuh Limited.

    Interview

    Applied online, heard back the following week to invite me to a group interview instore the coming Sunday. Upon first arrival, there seemed to be a lot of us (around 15) and we were then told to mingle and have a chat as the interviewers were running late as the day was busy. I tried to be talkative but the guy next to me was having none of it! However this didn't seem to matter as they couldn't see who was talking etc. As long as you pick it up later on! When the interviewers arrived they briefly spoke about themselves and handed around sticky labels for names and such. We then took it in turn to introduce ourselves, talk about what we're doing at education wise. They do this on a voluntary basis to see who's the most confident, volunteer first or as close as you can get, and talk confidently! We then got split into two teams and we were told to cross hands and hold with the person next to us, this was a team game where we had to untangle and all face the center with uncrossed hands. Our team didn't pass but make sure you pipe up and try to offer input, don't try lead and let everyone get a word in to see how you do and experiment. Like I said, our team didn't succeed per-say, but we still interacted well and made each other laugh and acted natural. I even piped up a one-liner at the end in order to make everyone laugh. We then further got split up into smaller teams of 3 where we were given two sheets of paper and told to describe the ideal employee. We then were told to sit and explain our choices. Make sure you talk confidently and let everyone in your group talk, my group decided a running order of we go down the line and begin again. This is also a good time to be witty and crack some jokes if you can think of any. All-in-all, Schuh are looking for genuine people that don't hide behind a cover. Be yourself is the most important advice I could give.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Schuh Limited (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and recieved a phone call two days later inviting me to a group interview in the store the following week. There was 15 people in the group and I found the managers extremely welcoming and friendly which made the whole experience very enjoyable. We played a few ice breaker games and then had a couple of group activities all relating to customer service. The whole interview took about two hours which was quite long. Although I enjoyed the interview as a whole I did not think that there was much opportunity to speak individually so it was hard to make myself stand out in any way amongst the other people there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Schuh Limited (London, England (UK)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Handed in my cv in store got a call 2 days later saying I have been invited to a group interview for the next day. It was a informal interview people came in jeans so did the interviewers. No questions were asked except what do you know about schuh which everyone said out loud. we were given two minutes to find out about the person sitting next to us and share it with the group. So it was by far the most relaxed and fun interview I've ever been on. They said they'll call back the people who were successful the next day and the ones who were unsuccessful an email. But I still haven't heard from them it's been a week but the ones who were successful have heard from them, I know this because I made a friend in the interview who was successful. I really love schuh and shop there all the time. So not even a email saying I was unsuccessful was really unprofessional and a bit of a waste of time, it's like they just forget about you if you wasn't successful :( Even though I thought it went very well.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Schuh Limited.

    Interview

    I applied for the job on the website and got an email a few days later telling me the date and time of the interview. I arrived about 10 mins early and was told to sit down and wait and would be seen soon. So I sat down in the store and was waiting for the interview and about 30-40 mins later was seen. During this time one of the managers who was meant to interview came and apologised and then kept me waiting a further 15-20 mins which I thought was completely unprofessional. After finally being called in I was sat down in the office and was then interviewed by two managers. I have never had an interview like this before. Literally, I must've had over 25 questions asked - about 3 pages they had in front of them. Some I felt were completely pointless regarding the position I was going for - "What's the spontaneous thing you have ever done?" After what felt like forever the last question they asked me was "30 seconds your in the hot seat why do you wan this position?" At that point I was ready to walk out. I had answered every possible question they had and felt this was too much. I understand that some interviews they really test how you deal with stress but I just felt that for the position I was going for they did not need to ask so many questions that did not relate to the job and to keep me waiting for nearly an hour outside. Let's just say when I was given the rejection email a few days later I was relieved.

    Interview Questions

    • What's the most spontaneous thing you have ever done? What's the worst manager and best manager you have ever had? What do you do in your free time? If you had a million pounds what would you spend it on? If you saw someone from the shopfloor who made a mess in the stockroom and left it what would you do? Where do you see yourself in 5 years time? Why did you apply for the position? What do you know about the company? Have you brought anything from here?   Answer Question
