John Lewis job interviewWatch
I’ve never been interviewed with John Lewis, but I’ve been to quite a few interviews with other retailers.
I would say to make sure you always have an answer prepared for:
- why do you want to work for us?
- what can you bring to the team?
- what are your weaknesses?
Those are the most common questions that I have been asked in interviews. Also, always have a question ready to ask the interviewer. It doesn’t have to be something like “why did you decide to work for the company?” (I always find it weird to ask that, but many people say that it shows enthusiasm), rather, it can be “when will I hear back?” Or “what training do you provide?” Just anything that shows you want the job and are eager to start!
I also have an interview coming up and i was wondering, since you have just had yours, what would be good to wear to their interview (suit and tie or something formal but not a suit) and what did the assessment consist of?
I wore smart trousers and a top with a fitted jacket ( it was a group interview - I didn’t know it was going to be so be prepared for that) the other candidates wore, a suit jacket and a skirt, and the male wore a shirt tucked into fitted trousers with a tie x
