    Retail Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Essex, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Next Retail (Essex, MD) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online which was very easy to do and allows you to apply for multiple roles quickly, Got an email to confirm I had been short listed and then got a phone call. Missed it but then called back and had a 10 minute conversation. Asked why I thought i’d suit the role, what I could offer, what I’d previously done for work experience, no more than 5 questions. I was then asked for my availability and if I had any holidays booked so it was all very easy. They usually tell you then if they want you to come into the store for a trial run and meet the manager and get to know the store followed by an induction.

    Learning & Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Leicester, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Next Retail (Leicester, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Email received from their internal recruiter - asking me to consider applying for a role. CV sent and I was then asked to attend an interview at their Head Office in Leicester. I was told it was to be informal chat through my CV, however, was grilled and made to feel that my experience and skill set were sub standard (interesting as they asked me to apply?) One of the men who interview me was rude and cutting and this has impacted on my view of this brand now. Shame really, but if they employ people like him - then it's not for me.

    Interview Questions

    • Amaze me with something that you know about NEXT?
      Tell me about your childhood?
      You wont know how the department is set up, but why don't you try and guess...?   1 Answer

    Software Engineer Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Next Retail (Leicester, England (UK)) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by a recruiter about a job as a software engineer. I explained that I had 1 and a half years' experience as a software developer. I then had a brief phone interview with a technical manager where I was asked some basic C# questions and SQL questions; asked to rate myself out of 5 on C# SQL and javascript and some of the more common interview questions such as where I see myself in 5 years etc.

    I was then given an online test to complete which examined javascript, SQL and C# knowledge. These were multiple choice questions, where you are given code snippets and asked to select the correct output. I was then called for a face-to-face interview with two members of the development team.

    The interview seemed to be going well, but as they were going through my CV and realized that I had less than 2 years' experience they explained that I wouldn't be eligible for the role I had applied for and instead offered me a role as a trainee, which I didn't take.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your experience with SQL? Can you tell us about a database you designed?   Answer Question

    Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bristol, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Next Retail (Bristol, England (UK)) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online, which involved completing a basic information section, and a small questionnaire which was very easy and just involved basic common sense.

    I then was invited to an interview at the store, was met by the office manager who gave me a quick tour of the store, then we had a one to one interview, where she asked me questions in a very laid back manner, and she offered me the role there and then.
