Sales Assistant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Godalming, England (UK)
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I interviewed at Superdrug (Godalming, England (UK)) in August 2015.

Interview

Started off with a short trial on the tills asking customers if they wanted a bag or needed a loyalty card while standing with a current member of staff. Took a long time to hear back from them after phoning twice. Also seemed unprepared when I turned up on the day. Overall interview was good but the store seemed unprepared.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Superdrug (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I applied online, the other day I went to the shop and passed my CV to the manager and after two days I got an email asking to come to the interview.
    When I came there were another girl having her interview so I had to wait about 7mins, then I came to the office, the lady who interviewed me was so friendly and atmosphere was really good.
    After a few questions I had to go to the shop floor and get to know with shop and just walk around for 10mins. After I came back and had some additional questions.
    On the job advert was said that salary is £8.24 but later I found out that is only £6.75, because I am younger than 25 so unfortunately I had to decline this offer, although I really liked the shop.
