    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Selfridges.

    Interview

    Applied directly online. Got a call from HR 10 days later who invited me for a face to face interview and then 2 more interviews with Senior Managers. Really smooth process and enjoyed meeting with everyone who interviewed me. Got an insight into stores’ future and exciting plans- which got me really excited in return. Feels like the company is going through a lot of positive change with a specific focus on employees and customer service. Everyone who interviewed me was very friendly and welcoming and wanted to know about me personally and my interests outside of work and not just about my work history. One of the best interview processes I’ve ever had!

    Christmas Temporary Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Birmingham, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Selfridges (Birmingham, England (UK)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Once you apply online you may be invited for a video interview (asking simple ‘get to know you’ questions based on Christmas) and you can re-record and watch your answer before submitting.

    Then you may be invited for a one on one interview with a group activity. Dress smart (I wore a blazer with turtle neck). The one on one is very informal and more like a friendly conversation about getting to know you with one of the managers (all so friendly) and only lasted around 5-10 minutes. The group activity consisted of coming up with a Christmas event idea with one manager looking over and taking notes of each group (they don’t hover about, just listen from a distance so no need to worry). My group didn’t have the best idea but they focus more on how much input your putting in and talking to the group.

    Got a call 4 days later saying I got the job and disclosing the department I’d be working in :)

    It was a nice, friendly conversation. The manager was in a rush and it lasted barely 10 minutes. It didn't feel like an interview, just a quick chat and a few personal questions.
