    Retail Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at o2 (London, England (UK)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Completed an online application form. A few days later I was invited to completed a series of online tests including arithmetic and verbal reasoning tests. These tests were average in difficulty. I didn't complete all the questions.

    I was then given a call a week later notifying me that I had successfully completed the online assessment. I was asked a few questions about my availability and other minor details about work eligibility etc. After having a 10 minute chat I was offered an in store interview .

    The interview comprised of two assessments, a series of questions relating to my sales and group/team work experiences and a role play. There were two interviews, one was typing my answers and the other asking me the questions. I was asked about five questions which they read off a computer screen. After completing the interview questions I was asked to do a role play in which the manager acted as a 'customer' who wanted a cheaper tariff (this person was previously on a higher price tariff). I responded by asking the 'customer' whether they were interested in a new phone or if they were happy with their existing phone to which the 'customer' answered they just wanted a cheaper tariff and was happy with their phone. I offered them a cheaper option but also gave them other options tailored to their needs.

    After completing the role play we had an informal chat and I asked them lots of questions such as 'what do you enjoy about your job?' and ' what is the single main problem you are facing and how can I contribute to resolving the problem?'. Essentially I tried to develop rapport with them. We had a little laugh and I got to know them a little better. We then finished off and two days later I received a call from Ireland offering me the position at the store I applied for.

    Other information worth sharing:

    They didn't expect me for the interview that day so I think they tried to prepare for it at the last minute. I had to wait about 40 minutes before I went in for the actual interview. In that time I decided to read their in store catalogue which actually helped me for the role play. I memorised some tariffs they were offering. All in all they were easy going people, really helpful and polite.

    Retail Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at o2 (London, England (UK)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I initially applies onlie through their website and filled out the standard form with personal details, experience etc and attached an updated cv and possibly a cover letter.

    Then received and email asking me to complete an online assessment which was fairly straight forward. Be prepared for this as it is timed. Maybe a week later I receieved an email invite to a telephone interview which was scheduled for a few days later (there were 2/3 options for days and times).

    Telephone interview lasted 10 minutes and again was straight forward. Some questions about my nationality, customer service, team work and working towards targets. All questions only needed a simple "yes/no" as instructed by the interviewer.

    I was then informed during the same call that I was successful so far and that they would like to invite me into a store to meet with a manager (team leaders) the following week. I was asked to bring my passport and national insurance proof so they could make copies of the docs.

    Arrived 10 minutes before the interview and I was lead into a room where they asked for my docs. The guy who interviewed me was quite young, maybe mid 20's, and had a very laid back approach which was good. This definitely made me more comfortable and he highlighted that the process isn't a very formal one as they believe in being innovative.

    I was then asked maybe 8-10 competency basked questions and asked to give examples in my past experience. So questions about exceeding expectations, good customer service, challenging situations and a couple that I didn't actually prepare for but I was able to provided examples. These were:

    1. Can you give an example of when you have been given a set procedure and thought of a way that you could improve on this?

    2. Can you think of an example of when you have completed a task/project and felt that you could have improved on it. If so how could you have improved your task?

    After the questions I was given a brief for the role play (which I was dreading) and it was basically a virtual telecoms company basked in the uk that had various products and services.

    I was instructed to make as many notes as possible in 25 for the key facts and figures that I would use for my role play situation. The information was plentiful so I made a point of ONLY taking down notes of the points I felt were 100% required, a bit of a risk as I had no idea what he was going to ask for.

    Role play lasted 10 minutes maximum and it was not as bad as I had anticipated. I was able to use my notes which was very helpful as it was just impossible to remember everything. I spoke clearly, well paced, and listened to his needs, while converting them into a suitable product.

    He concluded by saying I had done very well, and I should hear back from them within 7 days.

    I asked if there was anything I could possibly expand on or clarify (just to ilimitate any uncertainty) and he said no and praised me for my professionalism during the interview.

    We had a little informal chat after, to kind of break the thin ice and this is something I always do at the end of interviews Personally (if I feel it's the right person)...

    I feel I done well and left a good lasting impression.
