    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Monsoon.

    Interview

    too many hard questions lmao
    however, it was a great interview.
    but - they act nice, and then they act the opposite when you work. so whats the point?
    during the interviews, we should ask them if they are gonna respect us or not. also, when i CAME IN, they said there were no interviews, and sent me to accessorize.
    unorganized and rude, they are crazy!

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Monsoon (Milton Keynes, England (UK)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I had to write a cv and hand it in in-store, where I was introduced to the manager who read my cv there and then. She then asked me to return several days later for a group interview with several other girls. It lasted a few hours and it was a mixture of answering questions, doing group activities with the other applicants and then we were watched to see how well we interacted with customers on the shop floor. I got a phone call later that day saying I got the job

    Sales Assistant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Monsoon (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    First I had to apply in store , they had an application form I had to fill out. I filled it out there and then and handed it to one of the girls that was working there.

    About less than a week later I got a call back for an interview.

    It was a group interview and it was pretty straight forward. There was about 8 of us and one interviewer she put us into two teams of 4, to answer questions on the company and what not. Then out of our teams she gave us a each a profile of a person to find an outfit for, for example :

    Mary is looking for an outfit to wear to a party/wedding/babyshower.
    She is a bubbly person and likes to wear short things etc.
    Her budget is 200 euro.
    Find an outfit for Mary.

    Then we went back up to the staff room to explain the outfit and why we picked it. I advise you to choose shoes and accessories also just to show that you've thought about it also as it is an outfit. And pay attention to the profile and pick an outfit based on that.

    That was pretty much the interview it lasted for about an hour and she told us if we were or were not successful she'd get back to us.
