    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at The Body Shop (London, England (UK)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The process was divided into two sections; a trial on the shop floor, followed by a formal interview. In the trial I was asked to assist on the shop floor as well as leave the store to approach potential customers, in the hope of luring them into the store. The interview consisted of various questions which tested my knowledge of the brand and my personal view of the company.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at The Body Shop (Crawley, West Sussex, South East England, England (UK)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Gave CV in store and got a call a few weeks later asking me to come in for an interview. Interview was quite easy, I was asked the usual questions. The overall process was quite long as i wasn't contacted to say I was not offered the job, I just had to assume I wasn't successful.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at The Body Shop (Whiteley, England (UK)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and about 45 mins later got a call inviting me for an interview later the same week. I had to go in dressed in black for an interview, which went really well, the lady who was questioning me was really nice, and we ended up just chatting about makeup and animal testing. I then had to go out onto the floor and do a role play with the manager (who wasn't the person who interviewed me) and try to sell her the face mask that was most suited to what she wanted. The mask range was new and I got given very little information about them, which made it quite hard but I just had to roll with it. They then made me stand in the store greeting people, but I ended up neatening up the displays because I was so nervous and didn't know what to do with my hands. When the store became more quiet again, they said I could go and that they'd be in touch in the next few days. A few hours later, I received an email saying that I hadn't got the job.
