    I worked at Ted Baker in Leeds for a couple of years. When I was interviewed it was very relaxed, one deputy manager and one supervisor. Only the manager did the talking though.

    The questions were pretty standard, asking me why I liked the shop, why I wanted to work there etc. I was also asked about my sales experience and why I thought customer service was important. It was pretty standard stuff to be honest, the most important thing is to...

    1) Dress well. Try and wear an outfit that fits the brand, so smart casual but don't be afraid to be a little tiny bit daring.

    2) If they ask you why you like TB, mention something about how the brand is really outgoing, or how it fuses classical tailoring with modern quirks. In fact, my interviewer loved my description of the brand as quirky but cool so maybe you should go with that.

    3) Just be nice. Smile and be polite, but be yourself. Don't be afraid to chat with a few staff in the shop if you're early. It will reflect well.


    Good luck, it's a good place to work and the discount is reasonable but the company culture that pops up here and there is really really annoying.
