    Warehouse Interview

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

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Dixons Carphone (Derby, England (UK)) in August 2012.

    Interview

    The manager was relaxed and allowed me to feel comfortable, it definitely helped reduce nervousness. It was set in the managers office, I was only asked a few questions. He was polite and talked about the different roles in the company before asking which one I would want to work in.

    Interview Questions

    • They gave me a small maths quiz with 5 questions on, mainly about percentages and sales. They weren't complicated. For example, the camera says it's £89.99, however there is currently 5% off, what is the new price?   Answer Question

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Dixons Carphone (London, England (UK)) in March 2017.

    Business Development Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dixons Carphone.

    Interview

    I went through an agency who had bundled myself in at the last minuet (receiving job spec 30 mins before interview time). actual interview was a group interview staged by two young looking men. Given a very basic and irrelevant task before we could actually greet one another providing a very initial atmosphere. task over, pulled in separate. Had my CV pulled apart with nothing good about it said. the two have a bit of a conversation on their own and some very redundant questions later, i am escorted out of the building.

    I did not receive a reply from either recruitment agent nor themselves.

    UI Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dixons Carphone (London, England (UK)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    My face to face interview was good, the Senior Designer was smart and professional. I've been qualified to the next step which was a design task where I spent two entire days of my life.
    I received an answer after a few weeks saying that the interview was good but they decided not to proceed with me. I asked to specify...
    They never went back to me: I believe it is unfair that a candidate spends so much time for them while they cannot spend one minute of their time for improving the candidate life.

    Easy, if you speak Swedish it is enough for them to offer you a job there. You do not have to be smart, but if you know Swedish they will hire you.

    Assistant Category Manager Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dixons Carphone (Acton, London, England (UK)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through the dixon's carphone site. I was invited to take a numerical and verbal reasoning test which i passed. I was invited for an interview at the HQ down in Acton, London. My interview was really good, the members of staff i met were very welcoming. I was called back by the Talent spotter from Dixons Carphone, she gave me really good feedback. However, she said i would have to attend another interview as the line manager was not in on the day i had my interview ( a bit weird). This was annoying because the application process i read up on stated there will be only one interview.

    I went for my second interview a week later, honestly it was dreadful. The line manager was very hostile and seemed racist from his body language. He was not going to shake my hand if i didn't pull out my hand, he stared at me for a long time to see if i would crack after the interview. I was interrogated instead of being interviewed. It was just awful, after that experience i knew i was not going to be given the job. It took 2 weeks for me o find out whether i was going to be offered the job or not. The Talent spotter lady was unprofessional giving me the news she called me and said "oh yeah quick one for yourself; we won't be progressing your application further as someone internally will make a better fit". Prior to this i was told i was the only one who had passed all stages.

    Assistant Category Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in East Acton, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dixons Carphone (East Acton, England (UK)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Stage (1) - brief phone interview with a Resourcing Business Partner.
    Stage (2) - numerical and verbal test
    Stage (3) - interview
    The interview based on behavioral questionnaire, but quite fast my interviewer skipped some questions and ask me about my previous experience which was more interesting for him. He told me a lot about how the work for Dixons looks like. They told me they give me a feedback until the end of the week. They did not. I sent an email to the Resourcing Business Partner who arranged my interview and kindly ask about any feedback which can help me with future interviews and she told me they need a little more time and she will call me back in a week with the result. She has never done it. I have really negative feelings about the company and its recruitment process. I checked glassdoor and it looks like I am not the only person who was treated in this way.
