    I worked at Harrods full-time

    Pros

    Dynamic environment. Not too big to have management afraid of new ideas. Benefits are great. Some of the best people I have worked with.

    Cons

    Some people have been there for a long time and are adverse to change.

    Assistant Managing Editor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hammersmith, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    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.
