• Carphone Warehouse Post-Interview

Hi guys,

Before I rattle on, I just want to say this is my first time using TSR. Never posted anything until now!

I need a little help:

I'm a student, and like everyone else and their mother at the minute, I've been looking for some part time work.

I applied for a job at my local Carphone Warehouse, passed the pre-interview quiz... thing and successfully got an interview.

I dressed smart, turned up early, was attentive to the interviewer (who was the manager of the store) and it all seemed to go pretty well. The manager seemed pretty happy with how it went, and so in turn so did I.

She said with a smile: 'I'll let you know within a week about how it went.'

So with that, I was excited to hear from her, and had a pretty large grin on my face.

THREE WEEKS later, still no call, no text, no email notification even of what happened. Even if it was a decline, my personal experience has been that you are still notified at some point.

So I pay the store a visit, meet with the Assistant Manager, a very nice guy who led me to the interview three weeks prior, and I asked him if he knew anything about the job posting, and told him that I hadn't heard a thing from anyone at Carphone. He seemed puzzled, and told me that (according to him) everyone had been contacted. Apparently the manager wasn't in, so asked if I could come the next day.

And I did, to find a very busy store, and a flustered manager rushed off her feet. The Assistant Manager came to me again, apologising for the faff, and said to make sure that she has a correct point of contact, to give him my mobile number, so he can shove it in front of her face when she 'has a spare minute.'

It has been another three weeks and still nothing. My application online still says *Submitted*, not 'declined' or 'unsuccessful' or even there at all, so this is why I'm still hanging on it. That and I would really love the job because it is selling something I love - tech - and the pay is quite good. :P

Has anyone had any experience like this? Have I simply been dropped and not told...? Or is there still time?

Thanks in advance for any replies!
