Seasonal Selling Partner Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Solihull, England (UK)
No Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at John Lewis & Partners (Solihull, England (UK)) in September 2019.

Interview

You apply on line by answering questions about how you rate certain customer service scenarios. Takes about 45 minutes. If they like your responses, you are invited to a group assessment. This is usually 2-3 hours long and you sit with 4 or 5 other people at a table, watched by an assessor and they see how you interact and answer the tasks.

Interview Questions

  • They actually didn't do a question/response type of interview. You filled in a sheet of scenarios as a group and talked about them and then answered some on your own and had to write the answers down and hand paper in.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at John Lewis & Partners (London, England (UK)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was okay, fairly easy. We were in groups of 4-5 people and did a group activity and an individual written task.

    The people were friendly and the interview wasn't too long, under an hour.

    The actual tasks weren't very hard at all. They were mostly centred around scenarios and what course of action you would take.

    Interview Questions

    • We weren't really asked questions. My interview was mainly group work as opposed to the standard questions and answers.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at John Lewis & Partners (London, England (UK)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    It took 24 hours to go from initial application, through online testing, and then to an invitation to interview. The face to face interview was a bit like a cattle market - there were upwards of 40 of us split into groups. We had a group discussion/negotiation and a set of three shop floor situational 'how would you deal with...?' questions. No individual time with any interviewer.

    Interview Questions

    • One question - a customer asks you to help them find an outfit for a special occasion. What questions would you ask them and what help and advice might you give?   Answer Question
