    Sales Assistant Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Poundland (Gillingham, England (UK)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Group Interview - Speaking with other applicants, completing short paper test and then one on one interview.

    There was quite a lot of applicants in the first two rounds - in the first we had to introduce ourselves and tell the rest of the people there about the people we are paired with.

    Second, we had a small IQ test which was based on retail - those who passed this test and the first round were invited for a one on one interview.

    The one on one interview was quite simple with the interview being very kind and helpful - explaining most of the questions we would have.
