    Part Time Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Uxbridge, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at WHSmith (Uxbridge, England (UK)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online via the website and received a phone call for a face to face interview 3 days later. Very unprofessional handling of the interview with the store manager not present for the arranged time. The applicant portal was not useful at all in providing me with any updates on my progress.

    Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The interview was one on one with the manager, lasted about half an hour and was very relaxed. I didn't have to do a maths test, which I was concerned about as others have mentioned they had. I would recommend that you do some research about the company, although it shouldn't have to be in depth, as they do ask what you know about WHSmith.
