I worked at Carphone Warehouse part-time (Less than a year)
Pretty good wage and decent training, the best part of being in my store was the camaraderie with my colleagues. Good experience working with the newest gadgets but this is limited.
Company is quite demanding of your time, sales targets were very unrealistic for my store, lots of upper management decisions made with little interaction with the people on the ground. There are lots of things asked from you for being low wage earners. Essentially the company expects a lot from their workers but treats them like potential criminals or children at times.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Carphone Warehouse in April 2017.
Initially, there was an informal chat so the interviewer could get to know me better.
Following this, there were a set of multi-part competency questions. From what I remember, these asked about times I'd worked in a team, a time I was curious about learning, when I worked to a difficult goal, how I've dealt with customers in the past and a time when I had to persuade someone.
Then there was a short role play, where I had to explain a set of 3 contracts to a "customer" and sell it to them.
