    Sales Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Croydon, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Clarks (Croydon, England (UK)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I went and dropped off my cv to y local Clarks store. On that same day, a lady left a voicemail asking if i could come in for an interview. I tried to call back but she wasn't in till Thursday and even though I asked her colleagues to let her know I was keen to book the interview they didn't. Finally three days later, I phoned and she offered me a slot for that afternoon. My interview was at 2.30 and I got there precisely at 2.30 but when told someone i was there for an interview, it was 2.32 and her manager came and gave me a dirty look and was really patronising saying "Well don't really know if we have the time, it is a job interview you know." I apologised so much, but the lady wasn't having it.The interviewer was much nicer, but I didn't receive an offer as they didn't even call back. I wouldn't have wanted to work there, there backrooms were horrible and with that patronising manger at the front of Clarks...no way.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Clarks (Street, England (UK)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The applications process took longer than usual as there were some staffing changes being made in the business.

    In the first round of the itnerview stage I presented my Portfolio, answered questions and learned more about the role in detail.

    For the final round I had to prepare a small design brief to innovate the Clarks Originals brand. I presented to a designer and the Category Designer.

    Communication in between the application and interviews was slow and rare, but other than that very professional.
