    Hi there. I just had a telephone interview with Debenhams and although I got a little bit flustered, I think it went okay. However, at the end of the interview I wasn't told I had passed straight away. Instead I was told I will be contacted within 7 days. I am just worried because on the majority of forums, those who passed were told straight away and those who failed were either told within in the week or didn't hear back at all. Did I fail? Has anyone been in my situation? Thanks

    In my experience, I usually hear at the end of the phone call if I've been successful in getting a face to face interview. That's not to say you didn't get the job though! Different companies and different stores will have different policies regarding this, so don't worry too much about it. If you haven't heard back in about a week after the phonecall, I'd give them a ring back and ask about your application. After all, if they were on the fence before then this could push them into taking your application on further!

    Good luck!
