    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Boots (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I arrived 10 minutes early and the assistant manager saw me right away (the manager was on holiday so couldn't conduct the interviews themselves), however she wasn't fully aware of when I had booked my interview slot..!
    She firstly told me a bit about the position, asked me to tell her a bit about myself and what experience is previously had. This was the extent of the questions!
    We then went on to the shop floor where she asked me to find the cheapest box of paracetamol there was, and to say what I would do to tidy up a shelf.
    From there we then went over to the No7 counter where I had chosen the face wipes to talk about and sell to a customer.
    We then went in to the back room and I explained that I would have to return to university in September which I knew would affect my chances, and she kindly told me that they were probably looking for someone who was going to be with them for a longer period of time, which was completely understandable, but she would see what she could do when deciding with the manager.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boots (Boston, MA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    We met and sat down to discuss qualifications. Fair and legal questions were asked. The interviewer was friendly, professional during interview, and explained expectations and duties of the job very well. I was to come in dress code and we took a tour of the Target store I would be in, procedures daily that would be expected and become second nature, meeting different departments that were involved in the health and beauty isles, where Boots shelves were of product.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Boots.

    Interview

    The manager was late for the interview. When I finally got called in he said he has no time today so will ask only a couple questions. After that he told me I will be going up to the shop floor so he can see how I work and afterwards he will finish off the interview. I was put in front of the store to promote their star gift make up set. Spent an hour there even though the manager said it would be 30 minutes. He rushed over and said he was on the phone so couldn't come get me. Then we went back to the office and he asked if I would be interested in any other positions at the store. I said yes, depending on the role. That was the whole interview. He did not care about my previous work experience, why I left or what education I've got. The same day I got a call offering me a trainee dispenser position with a tone that said "take it or leave it".

    I received an email to book a time slot for my interview after successful completion of the online assessment questions, I went to the store at my allocated time. I was firstly asked a few questions normal interview type questions in the office, I was then invited out onto the shop floor to see how I interact with customers and stuff, I was asked to pick an item and explain why i picked it and how I would sell it to a customer and what type of customer it would suit and what other beauty products I would recommend to someone who had an interest in the product I chosen. I was asked to pick out a confident and unconfident customer. I was also give a product a no7 cream to ask customers if they wished to try it. That was the end of the interview I said goodbye and waited to hear a week later that I had gotten the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Boots (Leatherhead, England (UK)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I completed the application online and got a response the day after to ask me to come to an interview, they skipped out the online assessment questions that I'd had to do previously applying for boots. I turned up 5 minutes early, and on arriving the interviewer was unaware she had an interview! The lady was very friendly and made me feel comfortable. She asked competency based questions, and for the second part we went on to the shop floor and was asked a few questions such as picking your favourite product, and determining different types of customers. After the interview she had told me my passion was obvious as I love make up, and I had done so well. Unfortunately I had to ring up over a week later after telling me I would find out within a couple of days, and I did not get the job. However they put my name forward for a position at benefit, so I am yet to have that interview.
