    Hi, I'm not sure if I've posted this to the right forum - apologies if it is wrong!

    I have an interview at Jack Wills coming up and I've heard that they are very challenging and they ask lots of bizarre questions to 'catch you out' so I'm very nervous!

    If anyone has had an interview or/& works there (or has worked there) please can you tell me what they asked? And what you said in reponse and how it went! Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

    My sister had one and she said there were loads of people going for like 3 jobs and they picked the most attractive. I think they can be quite exclusive like Hollister and A&F so just don't expect to get the job and don't be disappointed too much if you don't get it. My sister said they didn't seem too fussed about asking job-related questions and focused on making sure everyone was "cool". That said, this was for the Nottingham store and I don't know if it's the general thing or whatever. Best of luck though.

    They seem to take on an unnecessary amount of staff at many of their stores, including Leeds where there's quite regularly more staff than customers :l. Either way, if you don't get a job through their shallow, insipid application process there's lots of other decent shops like Primark who'll hire anybody in a heartbeat, even without experience for about £4-£6 ph. Good luck!

    PM me and I will try and answer any specific questions that you have. It's not a particularly challenging or bizarre process though so I wouldn't worry yourself too much!
