Anonymous Interview Candidate
I applied online. I interviewed at B&M Retail in Oct 2023
Found it to be very informal, my interview was 30 minutes late which i thought was slightly unprofessional. First part was them describing what the job would be and when I would be expected to start. Mainly just asked about myself and my experience. They didn't ask if I knew anything about the company, more interested in experience and availability (if i had any holidays booked). Mention that you're very comfortable in fast paced environments.
- What would you describe as good customer service?

Easy interview, more like a show around the store and then told the rules and policies. They say it’s an interview but not very formal in the slightest. Friendly staff and managers.
- Flexibility and hours but all and all not much asked.

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Barnsley, Yorkshire and the Humber, England
I applied in-person. I interviewed at B&M Retail (Barnsley, Yorkshire and the Humber, England) in Jun 2023
I had an on-the-spot telephone interview. I had no time to prepare for the call as they called me out of the blue, and they asked me questions about why I wanted to work for B&M, what I knew about the company, what my salary expectations were, and what job role I was looking for. The person who called me was a little rude and abrasive. I was told that if I passed the screening I would be invited for an in-person interview, but I have not heard back yet.
