Hey all,

Just got off the phone with a lady for a phone interview. Apparently I was good enough to proceed on to the next stage.
However, she did mention she didn't know where it was going to be held so will call me back at some point. Considering it's set for the 19th/20th Sept, in a weeks time, I was wondering if this was simply a light brush off or they are actually interested.
Thoughts?

Actually quite surprised I'd got it, as I made the application about 2 weeks ago, completely forgotten what I'd BS about to get in so far and actually couldn't recall what or where the position was.
Not to mention I've only got about 3 months retail experience and must have sounded like a bumbling idiot on the phone :rolleyes:

Anyone got any experience of this procedure?

I wouldn't mind a heads up on what's coming next

Cheers all

~Zorg.

I had one about a year ago - can't say I had your problem with the location though! If it's still the same, they should send you an information pack all about the face-to-face interview process.

From what I remember:
They made a standard speech about the company's history (mostly about their recent merger).
There was a 3 minute 'Sell Yourself' exercise.
A role play.
And a standard interview.

If they weren't interested, she wouldn't have contacted you. Good luck!

Cheers for the heads up. I've taken a look around and some people have mentioned a presentation. I'm just wondering if they'd seriously give you like 2 days to prepare a presentation. :confused:
Yeah, that's what I was thinking. If they were going to lightly brush you off they'd have said they'd contact you in 2 weeks or whatever, I don't know. Just a niggling doubt I guess.

Thanks

I just applied for Everything Everywhere. How long do you think it will take for me to get a phone call? How long did it take you? And did you have any previous experience? (I got none )

@Zorg: The presentation is just the sell yourself exercise... IIRC (I had a few interviews at the same time) they said you could do whatever to sell yourself. Like... compose a song or make a comic strip or even just make a normal speech.

@SFeet: You'll probably get a phone call if you pass the online personality question test (if they still do that!). As with all companies the time between applying and contact varies, usually depending on how urgently they need the staff.

Took about 2 weeks for me to go from applying to getting a phone interview. I think that's about normal.

I've got some customer service experience; pub work mainly, but also 3 months sales assistant in a retail store.

Any advice on getting my first job? Can you help me out with my cv? I done most of it just want to make it look attractive now. I'm looking for work in retail or picking/packing.

?Qualities
I am a hard working and passionate individual seeking a challenging position in retail sales and packaging, which will enable me to demonstrate my excellent teamwork skills, communication skills, and mature approach to work. I am very sociable and have the ability to establish relationships with colleagues from various ages, backgrounds and gender. I can work well using my initiative as well as part of a team. I am punctual, honest and reliable and I believe I have the ability to present myself with confidence whilst being able to remain calm under pressure and maintain a positive outlook at all times. I have the passion and aim to develop myself in a field involving sales and communication and I always seek opportunities to progress and develop my skills further.

Skills
Throughout my school studies I have gained a considerable amount of confidence in approaching people and offering them my help and advice. I am able to work very flexible hours and will be able to work at short notice where required. I have good team work skills and have the ability to support colleagues no matter how difficult the situation is.

Hobbies and Interest
I have a keen interest in learning new skills and grasping new concepts through hard work, research and commitment. I have a natural thirst for developing myself and relish in any opportunity to do so. Aside from this, I also get satisfaction from socialising with both family and friends, also I love any opportunity to meet new people and create new friendships. I enjoy team sports such as Football and Basketball, as this allows me to work within a team; together aiming to hit targets, win games, improve and succeed.

Cheers

Post in the CV helper section.

Currently I'd say it's just a wall of generic text. It's quite boring really. You need something that makes you unique, makes you stand out.

FREAKING OUT! I only applied about a week ago, got one questionnaire to fill out a few days ago, had my phone interview yesterday where I was a rambling idiot, somehow they called me today saying I'd passed and i've got my proper interview TOMORROW! Yeah 24 hours to get a pitch all done, my outfit all sorted and ahhh! I really really want this job but I'm so scared my nerves will get to me :/ Oh and I've still to receive the email though to be fair, it only was 30 mins ago.

But I am slightly confused, the recruitment website says it's a pitch on selling yourself whilst I'm 90% sure the woman I spoke to said I would be given 3 futuristic gadgets and I had to choose one to sell. Refreshing my emails like MAD!

Just applied for a 12hr job at EE and got an email saying I have failed the online assessment. How can they fully see what your like through this method I don't know.

I also forgot to upload my CV and add references when completing the application. Is it worth contacting recruitment to re-apply?

How long did you have to wait for them to get back to you?

I've done two assessments so far, still waiting on a response
