    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Claire's Accessories UK.

    Interview

    After applying I was invited to join a group interview, where they had us split into two teams and had us complete tasks for hypothetical customers. This included finding items that could be used for an 80s party while the other group had a different type of customer to accommodate to. Afterwards, we had to explain our decisions. Additionally, they tested our team work skills by giving us a card with an animal on it. We weren't allowed to speak to each other but could make the animal noises and had to assign ourselves into height order of the animal. Mostly they were looking for personality and candidates who seemed bubbly.
