    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Specsavers full-time (More than 5 years)


    Family orientated organisation, that cares about its employees. Good benefits and good communication concerning the direction of the company to staff


    Although flexible and progressive, a poor record of IT support and system integration within the business, therefore challenges arise over IT/system suppply chain

    Advice to Management

    A more cohesive program/ project roll out, taking into account all strategic areas of the business, in order to drive improvements through more effectively

    Receptionist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Londonderry County Borough, Northern Ireland (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Specsavers (Londonderry County Borough, Northern Ireland (UK)) in July 2015.


    Applied online ad the recruitment dept contacted me in a few days. Was invited to a interview, after receiving feedback I was then again invited to a second interview. Interview took place in the store. Was very laid back with a high focus on customer service.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were mainly focused on the customer experience and your own experience. In the first interview I was asked to select a pair of glasses and the was asked why I choose these e.g. The colour, frame size etc. Ensure you have a basic background of the business as this will be asked in the first interview! No tricky questions, all what you would expect in a customer focused role.   1 Answer
