    OMG yhh we actually could!!! i want to work there sooo bad it would just be amazing plus having this as my first job is just like wooow!
    So i had my interview and there was like 10 of us there i was just talking to everyone and trying to be soo friendly but i just felt like the interviewers weren't even watching us soo there was really no point but i dont know!

    the group interview just involved writing down 5 thing about yourself i put things like awkward, competitive... just things to try and make people laugh.
    then we had a group exercise where we had to think of a word for each of the letters in CUSTOMER FOCUS. Make sure when you present it to the group you explain each word like why you chose it and stuff. PLUS RESEARCH STUFF ABOUT THE COMPANY THEY DO ASK!
    Then it was the 1 on 1 interview (we didn't have any selling exercise/ wow and rescue exercise to do which was great!!) questions were like, hobbies, coping with pressure, what is good customer service and when have you experienced it. when i came out the people in the group were just like how my interview was 30 minutes while the other girl who went to hers at the same time as me came out 20 minutes earlier i don't kno if that's good or bad tho because i cant remember talking that much loool! Basically it was soo relaxed and good luck for your interview hopefully ill see you there yayyyyy!!!!

    Thanks! The interview went okish I think. It wasnt as scary as much I had though it would be. Ohh cool that means they will take on people they like not just how many they can. They said they would ring with a decision in 10 days. Really hope they say yes or no soon. Let me know if they let you know. Good luck!!

    The interview was quite calm and not as scary as I thought. we had to do a exercise in pairs where one had to describe a picture and the other without seeing it had to draw it and then as teams we had to answer questions about our role. Then it was just the one to one interview which was like for 20 mins. It was more like a conversation than a interview and the interviewer was really nice. They just asked questions about the role and experience. Hope yours went well!
    It has been a week today since my interview and I have not received an answer back or anything. I think I'm getting a bit impatient. I was wondering if anyone else has heard anything back from Debenhams after their one to one interview??? Thanks.
