    Sales Assistant Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dixons Retail (Bath, England (UK)) in September 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online for a christmas temp job at PC world. The online process requires you to fill out a common sense customer service quiz, shortly after i filled it out I received a phone call a few days later. It was a telephone interview but it was very laid back. I went for my interview the following day which gave me little time to prepare. The manager at the time was very friendly and enthusiastic about my experience with technology he said he was after someone with a bit more technical knowledge to replace a former employee. I was told on the day that I had the job and started the following week.

    Content Publisher In English Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brno (Czech Republic)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Dixons Retail (Brno (Czech Republic)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I received a call after business hours from a Dixons Retail recruiter inquiring if I was “still interested in the position.” (I applied for this position 2 days previously!) After establishing that yes, I was still interested, the THIRD question the recruiter asked was my salary expectation. I thought that that question was inappropriate so early in the interview process and refused to answer. The recruiter then said, “We have nothing further to discuss.” The interview then terminated by mutual consent.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dixons Retail (Carlisle, England (UK)) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Face to face relaxed interview with Store Manager & Regional Manager. Lasted about an hour and seemed quite informal rather than a strict question and answer drill. It helps if you know the manager and you do a bit of homework before hand

    Store Support Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Manchester, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Dixons Retail (Manchester, England (UK)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Formal but relaxed one-to-one. Clarity on the job role explained and you're asked what you're looking to achieve. Given an explanation of the career ladder if you ask. Training schemes are in places for free to all employees to aid in boosting their wage. I was able to state that the job was not my intended future 5 years down the line and they accepted that and still offered me a position.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dixons Retail (Hemel Hempstead, England (UK)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Two experiences with this company a short time apart. One was woeful and uninspiring, the other relaxed and very positive. Both were 2:1 and included some strangely worded company-generic questions as well as the usual ones.
