    I worked at House of Fraser full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Large company, household name, lovely products, like-minded colleagues. Possibilities of commission and bonuses depending on role or performance. Strong performer in the highstreet. Progression is possible and the training is being restructured. Opportunities are there, if you're driven enough to chase them yourself.

    Cons

    Progression can be slow, often looking to hire externally rather than from within. Working in retail brings pitfalls such as long and antisocial working hours and banned holiday periods.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at House of Fraser in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Online application - asked a few detailed questions about my past experience and I uploaded a cv and cover letter
    Phone call- I got a call 24 hours later explaining I had passed and they wanted to give me a phone interview
    Phone interview- they called very late, but it was helpful as I only got asked a few questions she was friendly and said I had passed and was I available for a 1:1 interview.
    My 1:1 interview was set up for 3 days after and upon arrival I was given time to look around and then had a role play task i passed that and was then given feedback and an actual interview with the line manager.
    The following morning I was called by a member of HR and offered a position.
