    Well done ! I hope you get the job

    . Boots can go screw itself 15 months for failing a retarded set of questions which dont reflect in the slightest the capabilities of a potential employee. Well done though
    Thank you!Haha why don't you try applying with another email address?

    Hey!Yeah i received the same email & been told that means you passed or they would've given you a straight NO but in a more professional way.I still haven't heard from them :/ I called the store and asked whether I would be called for an interview and they said they're still going through the applicants so it should take about 2 weeks! :confused:

    Yesterday I applied for a customer assistant position at boots, and today I got the email saying that my application had been sent to the interviewer, however I haven't filled out the questionnaire yet.

    So I logged onto my account and it said that I had completed the questionnaire today! I have previously applied for positions and filled out the questionnaire, do you think it will just have taken those answers?! I have always had to complete the questionnaire again!

    Heya,yeah you can only fill out the questionaire once & still uses the same answers.But if the email reads it's been sent to an interviewer than that means you've passed it so there's no need to fill it out again.

    Hiyaa!I had my interview yesterday & I reckon it went quite well!And yeah I had looked through a few threads & most people had more tasks & questions but luckily for me that wasn't the case.All i had to do was talk to a few customers if they wanted any help,how i would approach a customer looking for a cream,so i said i would start of with asking who it is for?and what they would want a product to do & if i could find an alternative to what they were using, next i had to choose a product for a elderly relative who came out from hospital to pamper herself,i chose the garnier perfect blur cream!Which is a cream to reduce wrinkles and make skin look younger which i think i did wrong lol!And how I would improve a shelf which i think i answered well.But I think i did good,i mean the interviewer looked impressed and was saying'yeah well done'after every task lol.She said she would get back to me within a week if im successful as there are still a few more people to interview!I hope they do crap!lol what did you do for yours? x

    Aww I'm really pleased it went well for you! Sounds like the interviewer liked your answers! My interview was for No7 advisor so the questions where very based on that, which was fine but after my answers the interviewer did not say a thing- just had a blank face ( that was the first sort of sign that I felt I was doing badly) we then went on the shop floor and I had to sell a mascara to customers ( she chose me a £20.46 one! ) no one was interested when they heard that price! Then just back upstairs to talk more about the job! It lasted a whole hour. I really felt that I messed up and it was a rubbish interview tbh. she seemed to have loads to interview so said she will let me know by end of next week! Not feeling positive about it at all! I'd love to have the job it's full time and I know I'd really enjoy it! What was your position for ? Best of luck! Fingers crossed the others were really bad!!! Let me know how you get on x

    Those type of questionnaires aim to measure a person's 'social desirability' - in other words, whether you care about how you are perceived by others.

    Questions that sound negative, but are things that everyone has done at some point, such as 'have you ever lied?' are there to test whether you will be honest, or whether you hide the truth to make yourself appear better. It's obvious to them you will have lied at some point for example, so if you answer 'no' they will know that you are less honest than others who answer 'yes'.

    If the questionnaire decides that you are willing to bend the truth to make yourself look better, then they consider that to be a negative attribute. A human never sees it, but the computer will automatically place it into the rejected pile.

    ALWAYS answer honestly.

    If your hours aren't flexible enough for them then they would say you're unsuccessful.That's what happened to me but then i got an email from another boots store saying I was successful and got an interview

    Haha!I got an interview for customer assistant & lol maybe she's just a strict person.I would feel nervous if the interviewer was like that,but the person interviewing me was really friendly & made me feel at ease.Awr who knows you might have not done bad as you think,be positive! x
