    Sales Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at B&M Retail (Keighley, England (UK)) in February 2019.

    Interview

    I applied for a new store due to open soon, was invited down for an interview at a local job centre. There were about 9 candidates and we all gathered around a table in which all 3 managers introduced themselves and we then were asked what we know about B&M. Next we watched a presentation briefly explaining about B&M. We were then asked to introduce ourselves and whether we have pets. Next stage was to do a group activity in which we were split into group of 3. Our activity was how would we respond to a customer complaint and we had to present this in front of everyone to which I feel I did really badly. After the presentation we were given application form to fill out and then last stage was one to one interview which lasted 5 minutes as the manager did not seem professional and was rather looking tired and showed no respect as whilst I was in middle of answering my first question, he stopped listening and turned around to bid farewell to someone. Didn’t ask many questions either.
