    After everyone had done this, we had to take part in a role play activity. we were split up into pairs, one of us had to pretend to be the customer and the other the sales assistant. The customer had to pretend they were going to a event of of our choice. our partner then had to up sale a product/ outfit that would suit the occasion and our needs.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at River Island Clothing (Stratford, London, England (UK)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    I attended a recruitment interview two days ago in Stratford and really enjoyed the experience as it was quite friendly and laid back. There was around 20 people in the room and we were asked to introduce everyone to the partner you were sat next to, explaining three interesting facts about them to the rest of the group. Two other things we did was create our own product or clothing to be launched within the store. We also did a role play where there was a sales assistant and a customer and a different scenario to act out with both a positive and negative outcome. Advice would be to stand out, they like confident people who don't hide in the background and who aren't afraid to be themselves. I accepted the job offer on the same day and am very excited to be part of the team over the Christmas period.

    Interview

    Overall it was a really enjoyable experience, it was one of the most comfortable interviews I’ve done. We started the interview by introducing ourselves, we were then asked what we knew about river island and why we wanted to work there. For our main task we were each given a piece of paper describing a customer (all of them were different), we were then given a few minutes to walk around the store and put together an outfit. Once everyone was finished, one by one, we presented our outfits to the staff and the other interviewees. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed it and it made me want to work there even more

    Interview

    Was an easy interview, only got asked one question, why we wanted to work for river island. It was a group interview, we also had to dress a celebrity. I think it was unfair, you just have to be the loudest and stand out.

    I applied online. I interviewed at River Island Clothing in November 2017.

    Interview

    Group interview which was fairly casual. Everyone introduced themselves and said a little bit about them. Then group work involving writing down good examples of customer service and then why we want to work for River Island. Then another group task to create outfits for 2 celebrities and show what we’d picked and why.

    Pretty straightforward and enjoyable interview.

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at River Island Clothing (Stonehaven, Scotland (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Handed in a CV on Wednesday and was called on Sunday night asking me to a group interview at 10am on the Monday. There were 10 of us there majority 17-20 years old dressed fairly casual and the operations manager for the store. Initially a few icebreakers; name and a fun fact then 2 truths and a lie. We then were put into pairs and had to take turns acting as the seller and customer, after about 10 minutes we went up in front up the group in pairs. I received a call later that day telling me I'd been successful, my induction date and my contracted hours.
