    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Debenhams.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview which lasted around 15 minutes; I was asked about my availability and then why I wanted to work for Debenhams, what do I imagine the role involves, do I work well in a team, as well as some situational questions e.g. what would I do if a customer asked for something not in my department etc. Got through and was scheduled in for a 'meet and greet' to see if I was a fit for the store itself (Oxford Street). This was filling out forms and sorting out hours and availability, was then taken for a one-on-one interview in which I was asked why I wanted to work for Debenhams and why I would be good for the role. Told me they would be in touch soon and I got an official offer two weeks later.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Debenhams in March 2020.

    Interview

    I got my invitation to an interview after 5 weeks of application!!! The initial email said I would hear back from them within 5-8 working days. The store manager took me to the training room and asked me some questions, it lasted 25 minutes and we talked also on topics irrelevant to work but more about my duties should I be employed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Debenhams (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The interview was extensive and covered all areas in regards to the role. It was a good conversation and was not intimidating at all. The major downside of this is that they did not get back to me after the interview. No feedback at all even though I specifically asked them to . I even sent follow up emails and they didn’t reply to that too. Very unprofessional and totally disappointed.
