    Sales Advisor Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Schuh Limited (Manchester, England (UK)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    So I applied via the website for the job and heard back within 3-4 days. I was contacted for a interview the next week on the Sunday and was told to come at half 9 before the store opens.
    Before the interview I revised what Schuh had to offer for employees and for customers also. I learnt that schuh had recently one the number one retail company of 2017. I realised when I researched what to wear it wasn't really clear so I'll tell you what I wore.
    I wore a black modern blouse and tight fitted pants with black flats. When I arrived at the interview we were seen straight away and was waiting in the general staff room. I was then greeted by a employee of schuh who was nice and smiley and told me not to worry as they're looking for personality and a smiley person.
     The interviewers came in and they were the most lovely people I've ever met. I was interviewed by a supervisor ( she had only been one for a short period of time but was great) and a deputy manager. We then had sticky labels and wrote our names on the label. We were then asked to write down our availability and our leaving notice ( if you were working previously) .
    Then the interview then started. We were then told about the history of schuh and about the pay. We then learnt about the core values of schuh which was respecting customers and colleagues, selling what we know - I can't really remember the rest.
    We then chose a shoe and then we had to swap the shoe with the other applicants. I had a heel that was really hard to describe but just mention the pricing , the detail and what made the shoe stand out! I also mentioned what the heel would go with. After that we had a toilet roll and we have to pull some off, every square that was had we had to say interesting facts about ourselves - I had pull loads of whilst other applicants pulled out 1 or 2 . The interview was then ended by the deputy manager saying she'll contact us by the phone if we've got the job or via email if we didn't.
     4 days later i received a phone call telling me I had the job - I've never been happier!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Schuh Limited (Galway (Ireland)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online within two or three days got a call for a group interview. It was supposed to be 15 of us but only 11 turned up, it was a very relaxed casual interview more like a discussion with open questions and team building exercises and ice breakers finished with a personal presentation. The ice breakers were good although we all introduced each other ourselves whilst waiting for the interview. Overall it was rather fun and a bit of a laugh. The presentations was a lot less nerve wrecking than we though you had to bring an object which describes you best I brought a college piece of work which was a poster I made for self identity I had a laugh with the interviewers whilst presenting it. The best advice is to include everyone and make eyecontact with more than just the interviewers don't take it too seriously as it is all based on personality.

    I applied online and got a phone call asking me to come for an interview. It was a group interview with around 7 people as some didn't show up. We were asked over the phone to design a poster about ourselves and bring it along with us. Once we were there we were asked to present our posters. We then did an activity where we had to draw the perfect sales assistant in groups on a sheet of paper in line with the schuh store values. Then, we were asked to sell a shoe to everyone. Was very fun and relaxed. I got a phone call 2 days after offering me the job!

Then in a group we had to design a shoe and present it back and finally had a 30 second hot-seat on why they should hire you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Schuh Limited (Sheffield, England (UK)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Three members of staff gave us an informal chat about the history of the company and their personal background in Schuh. Then we each had to talk about our object we brought with us that was special to us. Try and take something original because two girls brought the same thing which meant they end up taking about the same stuff. Its just a bit of a personality test and I think they were looking for people with individuality and have confidence to talk to people. After this we split into 2 groups of 5 and were asked to come up with a new shoe shop idea with a logo, slogan and target market. We chose some shoes from the shelves and then presented our ideas to everyone else. I think this was to show how you work in a team and how creative you are when thinking on your feet. Then we sat back down to talk about pay, discounted shoes and career progression. Finally we finished with any questions from us. They said they'd let us know the following day if we were successful or not.

    Basically be fun, cheerful, chatty and energetic. Make sure you get your voice heard because if you are quiet you can be easily over shadowed by others.
