Sales Assistant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lismore, New South Wales (Australia)
No Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Cotton On (Lismore, New South Wales (Australia)) in June 2017.

Interview

I applied and got an answer within 24hrs. Attended a group interview with eight people but I could not articulate my capabilities in full. While I was prepared for weird questions, I was ready for standard such as strengths, weakness and scenario based. No favourite animals and desert island questions, please.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cotton On.

    Interview

    average, standard questions. Phone interview after I had applied online asking about customer service, why i wanted to work there, 'tell me a bit about yourself'. really helpful to prepare beforehand. maybe write down what your answers for these questions would be so you're not scrambling for answers (if you've never done this before and are likely to blank)

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cotton On (Sydney (Australia)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online through website by answering a few questions. Got alerted of interview online. I went to the interview with area manager. It was very informal and was less than 30 minutes long. Mostly talked about myself, why I like the brand etc. I think they look more at personality traits than past experience because I had no prior retail experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cotton On (Melbourne (Australia)) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Long online questionnaire process, then group interview, then individual interview with similar, sometimes dumb questions.

    Then waited a while for response, was then thrown into the position with no training. Was made to sign contract while barely having a chance to read it, never got a copy, use it against you.
