No idea what you're even trying to say. "I'm applying to H&M, and about a couple of minutes later I'm unsuccessful"? What? You found out minutes after you gave in your application that you were rejected? Then you say "when I give my CV to the manager, they call me and say they're looking forward to my application"?

What on earth are you talking about?

Are you sure you had a reply, literally "minutes" after applying, if you have then there was definitely something wrong about your application, did you accidentally highlight no into one of these?

:ditto: I applied to H&M just now and I haven't even heard from them, but this thread is very confusing.

And like expresschoco, did you receive a reject email; just literally minutes later, because I didn't; I applied an hour ago and just received the usual "We have received your application and is currently being reviewed." (along those lines).

I work as a sales advisor in H&M..if you have been successful it will take a week for them to contact you
If you haven't been succesful they usually send you an email the same day or the day after
I don't know why but that's how they process their applications.
Also they like to see work experience so make sure you include any experience you've had in the past. Good luck

Still no reply? Should I take that as good news then? Thanks for your reply.

I had an interview on Friday (still waiting to hear back!). It was a really relaxed interview with the store manager and an admin assistant who jotted everything down. They firstly asked me about my flexibility and why I only needed a part time job (I had only applied for the 20 hour role). The main criteria questions asked were......Why H&M? Why do you think you would be suited for the job? What do you know about H&M the company? What role do you play in a team (leader, listener or both)? What do you think the job role involves? Give an example of when you have had to work to a deadline. What do you think good customer service is? What is your main strength?

After this they asked me if I had an questions and sent me on my way!

Hope this helps and good luck!!

Apply online because they don't accept CV's instore. I worked there for a year and the amount of people that came in with CV's was ridic and we couldn't accept them.
