Sales Assistant Interview

Anonymous Employee in Bath, England (UK)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied in-person. I interviewed at Boux Avenue (Bath, England (UK)) in November 2016.

Interview

Gave CV directly to the store. Then contacted quickly for an interview with the store manager. Nice friendly interview manner in the store. During the interview you will be set a short task to choose a product fitting a customer profile. This is to see what knowledge you have and learn about you more.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boux Avenue (Manchester, England (UK)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Was pretty standard. I got a phone call asking to do a telephone interview, I accepted and passed the interview process and was invited to come into store the following day.
    I entered the shop the next day and said I was here for an interview, had to wait 20 minutes and then I was asked too choose out of three scenarios and pick out items. Mine was ' pick out bras for a young teenager who has only been fitted once' I picked out t-shirt bras and bralets and the interviewer was impressed.
    After that assessment I was pulled into the back and was asked a series of questions which was relatively easy if you have experience.
    The next day I received a phone call saying I got the job! Really lovely staff and I'm excited to start.

    Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norwich, England (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Boux Avenue (Norwich, England (UK)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Originally gave my CV in around January time as there was an online recruitment for the Norwich store. Was told by the sales assistant that the manager had received and would get back to me soon.

    Fast forward 3 months, in which time I assume they had ignored the CV and I got a call asking me if I was available for and interview for an 8 hour position (it was perfect at the time as I was in full time education.) I agreed to the interview which was at 10am a few days later.

    I arrived early and was eventually greeted by the manager, where I was interviewed 1:1 and was asked basic interview questions, (name a time when...what do you know about the store..availability) and was then asked to do role play on the shop floor, where you would have to help out a store employee pretending to be a customer. I felt the whole process went really well, I had had previous lingerie training, knew lots about the company, was told I passed the role play very well and overall felt really hopeful. Was told they would get back to me in a few days with the result. They ended up never getting back to me which I found was really rude due to their initial contact wait period as well as how well I felt the interview went.

    Has put me off shopping in the store as it made me realise they have no respect for possible employees.

    Also had a really weird rule where you could wear any form of tights with your uniform (fishnet, floral, bright neon) EXCEPT the standard black tights. I was wearing black tights in the interview so maybe thats why I didnt get the job (lol.)

    Interview Questions

    • What do you know about the company? (Google about information on store, types of underwear sets, store cards, bra fit service.)

    Had a phone interview, then an instore interview, and NEVER heard back. Absolutely despicable way to treat people, I spent an hour of my day at the interview for them to not even have the decency to tell me no.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Boux Avenue (Belfast, Northern Ireland (UK)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Called up about my availability after I handed my CV in and said it was good, invited me to interview, made me go through an interview and a shift trail, only to tell me that my availablity wasn't good enough... very intimidating and rude employees and staff. During my shift trial the lady was supposed to be writing about how I was doing, but spent the whole time laughing and talking with her colleague and hardly wrote a thing...
