    Interview

    It was a one on one interview with one of the managers. She mostly wanted to know my motivations for working at RI and if I was well spoken. It is easier to get in through a referral from someone who already works there.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at River Island Clothing (Manchester, England (UK)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Firstly, applied online via their website and got an email a few days later inviting me to a group interview. There was around 10 of us in total, majority of the group were nice, friendly and chatty! We were asked to fill our our availability and went around the group and was asked why we want to work for River Island. We went then set a task to choose an outfit for a specific occasion (our group was a work night out), the process took approximately 2 hours in total. Got an email a week to later to say I was not successful. Did not feel there was an opportunity to sell yourself to the interviewer as it was completely group based.
