    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Holt Renfrew.

    Interview

    I applied online through their website, they phoned me a month or two later ( I even forgot that I applied) and invited me in for an interview. I actually expected dire and extreme attitude, but the manager was super nice and patient with me. It was quite an enjoyable interview.

    I think a lot of people become upset or disappointed because they expect too much, but in reality people at Holts only aim to get things done. They're not mean or evil spirited, but they definitely won't baby you.
