    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at David Jones (Sydney (Australia)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    We had to submit a resume and cover letter, then do an online interview and then about twenty of us, for different roles within the company, were invited to a group interview. The group interview consisted of three activities and then a one-on-one interview. For the group interview we were seated at tables with three to four others and assessed on how we interacted with each other and presented the information to the assessor.

    Interview Questions

    • Group Activity Questions
      Choose one word to describe yourself and relate this to your role in David Jones (icebreaker activity)
      What would you do in your role at David Jones to engage with the community and create a better future?
      scenario question - a customer moving into their first home has come to your department to buy small appliances. How would you provide them with the best customer service and how would you know if they had a premium customer service experience?

      One on one interview
      Tell us about a time when you had a difficult deadline and how did you meet this challenge?
      Tell us about one of your proudest achievements.
      Have you ever worked in sales?
       Do you have any questions? - prepare some because it won't come easily otherwise although you will definitely think of them later :)

      Tips: arrive early to check in downstairs. There were also questions asked in the initial stage before we started the group interviews asking who the brand ambassadors are and what year the company was founded.
