    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Harrods (Hammersmith, England (UK)) in July-2017.

    Interview

    I applied online for this role after seeing it advertised. I received a call from an HR Specialist regarding an interview a week later. Great interview, thorough in their search for talent yet inviting in the interview. About 2 weeks later was invited back for a second interview. The day after the second interview I was offered the role within the team.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Harrods (London, England (UK)) in October-2016.

    Interview

    I submitted an application online on their website and was contacted the following day with an invitation to an interview. It was a brief discussion of my CV, then some brief questions about my availability over the Christmas period. General questions such as why do I want to work here, where abouts I live and how I would get to and from work. Nothing too much.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Harrods (Hammersmith, England (UK)) in October-2013.

    Interview

    online application, hand in CV. you go into their hammersmith office with other people that are in different departments of harrods and talk about the department you are applying for. there is also a chance for other potential employees to ask you questions. it is almost like selling the company you are working for. there is also a person that call you the day before to remind you for the interview.

    IT Portfolio Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Harrods in November-2016.

    Interview

    Met with friendly, engaging interviewers. From an interview point of view it was a good experience.

    My issues arose post interview. Despite chasing the recruitment team, I received no feedback or contact regarding their decision, worse still the first I heard that I would not be offered the role was a third party company asking me to 'rate my experience' having been through their recruitment process!!! Priceless.

    Buyer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Harrods (London, England (UK)) in April-2017.

    Interview

    The initial interview was via a video link. Questions on screen, talk into the camera. The process was totally lacking in any human contact and suited to a younger applicant probably. They did follow up with a face to face which was much much better. Interviewer very professional and friendly at same time.
