    Hi guys,

    I have a job interview with Phase Eight this weekend.

    First of all, what type of questions should I expect and secondly how smart should I be dressed?

    Thanks.

    Well it's retail and fashion, so wear something trendy but not overly trendy to the point it looks like all you care about is how you look.

    General retail questions include - why you want to work for the company... questions about what you might already know abiout the company. When you last shopped at the store you're applying to. What you like about the company/store.

    Then there's just housekeeping questions on availability, right to work in UK, age etc

    Just for future people wanting to know they started with a styling exercise where they give you a scenario of a customer and you have to go and find some outfits that you would take the customer to the fitting rooms with and then explain your choices. Then the manager picked out a top and asked how I would sell it to her.

    Then in the formal interview bit it was the usual questions like why do you want to work for Phase Eight, how could you be an asset to the company, why do you want to work in fashion retail, asking about your experience and then a lot of questions where they give you a scenario and ask what you would do, such as how you'd handle a return and what you'd do if there was still things to do but your shift was over etc.

    Hope that helps!

    I was wondering the same thing, it's been a while and I haven't even recieved an email, I've called the store but their response was they don't deal with the application but it is the head department that sends candidates to them

    Hi they just gave me different scenarios. They weren't really friendly with me but who knows you might get nice people! I didn't get the job, they told me that they'll ring to let me know whether i got the job or not but didn't hear back from them
