    E-commerce Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Liverpool, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Matalan Retail (Liverpool, England (UK)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online then I had a video interview. Then I was invited to the assesment centre. There was a group exercise, presentation and interview. Presentation topic was given in advance. In my opinion the group exercise was a bit irrelevant as there wasn't anything concerning the industry or role I've applied for

    Interview

    I applied online, the process took 2-3 weeks. Once I'd completed the online application I got an email inviting me to an interview 4 days later. The interview is a team interview, there was 5 of us at mine and we started off just going around and introducing ourselves. Then we completed a task where we all as a team had to style two outfits from two different departments and then sell/explain our choices to the interviewers. We then did one to one interviews with the manager and went home. Took around an hour. Then called an hour later to say I'd got the job.
