    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Barrow in Furness, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Currys PC World (Barrow in Furness, England (UK)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    My interview was very welcoming. We talked about my CV, I got asked about my hobbies and interests. Asked about what I'm studying at college and how long left I have. Then we talked about times and pay. After that he told me a scenario if he was a customer and wanted a laptop just for the office package etc etc. After that, he said that if we think you're successful with this interview, we will ask you to come in to meet the store manager about the job and to talk about times etc. So he took my details and gave me the job.

    Interview Questions

    • If I was a customer and I wanted a laptop and I'd be only using it for an office package, what laptop and extras would I need..?   1 Answer
