    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Carphone Warehouse (London, England (UK)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was very informal , the manager asked a few questions about my cv and about my interests. Then we moved onto a role play where I was trying to sell a new nerwork plan to this customer, which was played by the manager.
    The manager was friendly at the beginning however once i started speaking it seemed that she was bored and that kinda put me off abit. I did not receive any feedback from them whatsoever.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Carphone Warehouse (London, England (UK)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and filled out a question that took about 10 minutes. Thought nothing of it as is previously applied and heard nothing back when I got a call from the store manager asking me a few details about the position I applied for availability and why I wanted to work for them etc. Arranged an interview for the following Monday, upon arrival I had to wait for a while he was serving, then took me in a small room and asked me more compentancy based questions. The interview took no more than half an hour beforehand he asked me to research more about the company but didn't ask me anything regarding it which I was confused about then took a look at my right to work documents and said he would let me know by the end of the week which I will be successful in getting the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Carphone Warehouse (London, England (UK)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    They were bulk recruiting in the Xmas period and from what I can remember, there was a phone interview, followed by a Group & 1 on 1 interview in Central London, followed by ~ 2 induction days followed by actual work. It was all pretty quick.

    Interview Questions

    • Phone interview: Customer Service questions, past work history questions, availability, travel time etc.

      Group & 1 on 1 interview: Informal group chat followed by a 1 on 1 interview with an assessor. Main thing I remember about the 1 on 1 interview was that I had to sell my phone to the assessor - they tell you about this in the phone interview and thus you have a couple of days time to prepare for this.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Carphone Warehouse (London, England (UK)) in June 2013.

    Interview

    applied online, and had to complete a personality test straight after, and then in about 2 weeks- 1 month was called to conduct a telephone interview which was really brief. Then offered to come into a interview with 2/3 other managers and managers in training at the central office within the region (my case was stratford for the south east side) and was told I received the job straight away.

    As soon as you receive the offer, you are fully accepted however it is based on each individual store manager to see if they want to take you on, I was accepted into the third branch which happened to be in a 2 mile radius just barely but I definitely got the job.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by the manager and assistant manager of the shop.
    It was very friendly but it does vary depending on where you go work and who interviews you. The questions were not too hard so I wouldn't worry about it too much.
    If you pass the interview there is or used to be an induction week.
