    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shop Direct (Liverpool, England (UK)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Assessment day- Consisted of a few of the current colleagues giving talks about various roles within the company, followed by talks about the company background, history, ethos, values etc

    This is then followed by a group task, which consisted of a scenario or question that is then discussed and everyone gets involved and then findings are discussed and put together and presented back to everyone, which isn't as daunting as it sounds.

    This is then followed by tours of the office buildings and the spaces, between one on one interviews with staff from the selected role you have applied for, you should by this stage know who will be interviewing you, as everyone is in the cube with you throughout the day and there is ample time to go around and network and ask plenty of questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Shop Direct (Bolton, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was invited to complete a presentation and do a CBI. Disappointingly I never received feedback after putting all the effort and preparation in for a senior manager interview, After 3 weeks I chased carious members of the recruitment team. In the end I was casually told by the receptionist at the site the position had been filled. I raised my concerns to the head of talent and the site manager - to receive no apology.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Shop Direct.

    Interview

    We walked around for 10 minutes as the supervisor got lost in the new building. When we got into the interview room we had to ask another employee to leave the room. The supervisor asked a few questions however he kept talking too much for me to ask any following questions. He even kept interrupting the other staff member when he tried to ask me questions. I thought the interview went ok but awkward moments walking around getting lost. In the end they didn't want me as they thought my interest in web development wasn't genuine enough.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Shop Direct (Speke, England (UK)) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Detailed and challenging interview. The interviewer had clearly done their research and came very prepared with where they wanted to take the interview. Questions were probing and took me out of my comfort zone on a couple of occasions. There was a good balance to the interview as well - it gave me the chance to really understand what I needed to know about the role, the team, the business etc.
