    Casual Retail Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Melbourne (Australia)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Myer (Melbourne (Australia)).

    Interview

    Group interview of about 30 candidates, the people you sit with will become your 'group' for the rest of the interview process. Firstly, you watch a presentation regarding Myer and their goals as a business and what the casual sales assistant position offers. After the presentation you begin the group activities which include introducing yourself, answering several questions, and finally brainstorming as a group how one would sell an item. After these group activities, you and a a partner take turns role-playing as a customer or sales assistant whom is trying to sell an item that you chose from a table of different items stocked at Myer. This role-play is done in private with you, your partner and a supervisor. There was no one on one interview in my interview process. All in all, a very painless interview process that was honestly quite enjoyable, the staff who took our interview were great and very easy to just chat with. You are expected to wear business casual, don't be afraid of wearing a suit. After the interview you will be notified via email on whether you were successful or not, I was alerted in a matter of days.

    Christmas Casual/Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Melbourne (Australia)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Myer (Melbourne (Australia)).

    Interview

    three stages
    documentation (i made an impression in the seemingly routine procedure which came in helpful later)
    acting as sales assistants in virtual pop up shop (mention myer one points and features and benefits when selling)
    one on one interview
    the lady who did my documentation remembered me as she was also the lady who interviewed me in the one-on-one, i think that impression helped. I purposefully left an impression by smiling and asking how her day was- simple as that and it made all the difference!
    Previously had no retail experience and it was great just seeing how it's done and they definitely want you to think on your feet!

    Xmas Casual Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Melbourne (Australia)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Myer (Melbourne (Australia)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online through Myer careers page. Interview held in Aug 2016, Melbourne. Got to group interview after 4 working days of applying. Interview consisted of filling out a personal detail form, when are you busy (eg: holiday) ordering tasks (spills, greet customer etc). There were a lot of applicants in one room (from different places around Melbourne). It was more of a 1:1 process throughout the interview. Next was a selling audition with one of the staff there (I took less than 5mins). You approach them and ask how you can help. The room was set up as a shop. I recommend you browse the shop first, know where things are before approaching someone. The staff will then initial your paper upon completion. I noticed that some people had a symbol such as squares or triangles that was drawn by the staff. some got no symbol. (If someone knows what it means please let me know !) next stage was one on one with a manager and they'll ask you a few questions, experience/background and if you've got any questions. I was given an offer 2 days after the interview process. GOOD LUCK ALL !

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Myer.

    Interview

    We started out in a large room where we learned about some basic Myer values and what was coming up for the company, and what they are looking for in Christmas Casuals. The first phase of the interview was to sell a product from a selected range to a customer shopping for a Christmas present. After that you went to a one on one interview where they asked you a series of standard interview questions eg. Why do you want to work here?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Myer (Brisbane (Australia)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Yesterday I went for my Myer interview, when I got there we were all put into a room and there were 6 x 6 rows of chairs and we were told to sit and wait, we were chosen in groups of three to progress to the selling audition where as soon as I walked in they told us to go up to the manager where I was told to sell him something, ( I received a square through this task ) then after 5 minutes of talking I progressed through to the private interviews where they asked me three questions.
    1. What brands represent you?
    2. The quote "the love of shopping in life" how do you interpret this?
    3. So you have any special skills

    Advice -
    • make small talk with the people next to you!

    Selling question was -
    • I'm looking for a present for my dad, and I need help finding something
    • it's my mums birthday tomorrow and I need a present for her

    I received an email today saying that it will take a few weeks for them to sort out store allocations, they didn't say I got the job but I read somewhere that if people didn't get the job they received an interview saying that they were unsuccessful, I will wait it out and see what happens but I'm positive I got the job.

    Selling interview - [ square box = good ]
