    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Specsavers (London, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    It was a relaxing interview- it's more about getting to know the person but you also have to be aware of the specsavers company and any other previous experience is handy! Demonstrate your passion in serving customers and caring for them... maybe you have done some work experience in the past that could back this up!

    Trainee Laboratory Technician (Glazing) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Specsavers (Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    When I first walked in I unknowingly spoke to the manager who asked my to sit and wait. I was waiting for around 15 minuets as I had arrived early, I am fairly sure the manager was judging me the whole time as I was in clear view. I was then taken upstairs by the senior lab technician and was shown into a tiny room where the manager was already sat down. I was then formally introduced to both and the manager when through the routine set of questions rather bored and looking at my body language which put me off a little. I got the impression they had no intention of hiring me and were only interviewing as it was procedure.

    Receptionist Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Specsavers.

    Interview

    1.5 hours of the manager telling me about the store, he hadn't read my cv before the interview and got my name wrong. 1 question was asked, was more like a chat. Wasn't quite sure how a job offer could be made on that basis and didn't want one to be honest.

    Customer Service Advisor Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Specsavers (Telford, England (UK)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online. The next day I got a text saying that I have to fill out an online questionnaire. 11 days later I get a call to come in for an interview. I don't think the store was aware there was an interview arranged since the manager didn't even have my CV ready. But anyway, he asked me the typical interview questions and told me afterwards that they'd be in touch within a week to arrange my trial day. They called me the same day after 5pm saying that my trial is on Saturday. yay!

    Part Time Optical Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cork (Ireland)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Specsavers (Cork (Ireland)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Filled out online questionnaire, received a call from agent in UK who arranged an interview. Attended interview,

    When I entered the interview, it felt like they already found someone for the position, it was all very rushed and the woman did not seem interested, she asked one or two questions, nothing about Specsavers of my knowledge of them, felt more like I had met her for coffee and we were having a chat.
    I received an email saying i was unsuccessful a week after. I had known that walking out the door

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Specsavers in September 2016.

    Interview

    Online application was straight forward, offered an interview and prepared lots of answers to common questions, and was surprised how informal the interview was. Just a brief chat about myself. Was slightly concerned about the lack of professional questioning and it was difficult to gauge whether the role was suitable for me or not
