Entrevista

I was called in at short notice (round an hour and a half prior to the interview time) when it had previously been confirmed that the interview would take place via video conference ..I arrived there in a rush and feeling hot as it was a hot day, I was not offered any water; the Manager was not very friendly, he was Asian and I noticed every single member of staff working at the store was Asian too, but he mentioned that although he could promote from within he wanted 'fresh blood'..the interview dragged on for a full hour, there was no other witness and the door stayed open which meant other people overheard our interview, I did not like this at all. He mentioned he preferred to do things differently from the normal recruitment process

Interview with store manager. I was told they had already hired someone for the position I applied for but would interview me for a store much further away. I wasn’t interested in travelling to another store.

Followed online application, very lengthy and time consuming. Interview itself was was with store manager. Kept me waiting for 20 mins while she appeared to buy her lunch. Took over 2 hours to ask about 6 or 7 competency questions. Then waited 2 months for an answer which was 'you don't have the right skills' - this was actually a more junior position than I have held in over 12 yrs and 'please wait 6 months before applying again' : subtext, go away and don't come back. I emailed the recruitment team 3 times to follow up for an answer or feedback..... like I said, took 2 months to decide that my skills and experience were insufficient. Either they are so poorly organized that they can't manage their own email backlog, they actually shortlisted me and then just held the details on the off chance that their 1st choice dropped out or they have so little respect for their applicants that they just couldn't be bothered to process it any further (or any combination of the 3). Says a lot about the company to me - I would encourage others to avoid.

Preguntas de entrevistas
  • Asked to talk through work history even though interviewer was holding my c.v. with a chronological history on it - she clearly hadn't taken any time to read it first.
  • Competency questions all followed the 'here at Boots we value our -**** - ' 'Give me an example when you have had to do -**** - for -**** -' format
  • After her questions I asked the SM to talk around numbers so I could get a flavor of the business - sales, loss, labor, growth etc. She couldn't even recall one number and appeared to have no knowledge or care about the company goals or how she is going to 'lead' the business forward. Certainly wasn't interested in anything I had to say regarding change management.

Me postulé en línea. El proceso tomó 3 semanas. Acudí a una entrevista en Boots (Dorchester, South West England, England) en feb 2017

Entrevista

Submitted a standard online application form. Then invited to complete an online assessment based on skills, which was straightforward and not too difficult. I was the invited to an interview at the store I applied for, with my potential manager. This was a 1-1 interview, standard competency questions based on desired skills and company values. This was structured, the interviewer used a sheet with the questions on to make notes. I found the questions relatively straightforward, expected for the role and easy to answer following STAR. This was followed by a task which involved reading information about a fictional store and giving feedback on how you would tackle the issues in the short, medium and long term as an Assistant Manager for the store. I believe this was marked by the interviewer using a checklist as they seemed to be ticking boxes as I gave points. I'd had a lot of practice interviewing and was fully prepared for the task and competency question so I found this interview fine. The interviewer was relaxed and it was quite casual, lots of chatting and you were made to feel at ease. I felt the interview went well, and the interviewer assured me many times throughout and after my interview that I performed well in the questions and task, with great examples for both. However, when discussing a holiday request I mentioned I was unaware of where I was going as my partner had booked this as a birthday surprise. I was taken back when the interview then used the opportunity to ask my age. I was thrown back and on the spot, struggling to avoid the friendly question I told them my age. As a very young employee in my field, I find questions around my age a disadvantage to me. I performed well on the online assessments and the interview, as well as having a great deal of experience in this field with great work based examples of my work and skills. I therefore found this question quite sneaky and inappropriate, I regret giving an answer. Within a week I received a generic email from HR telling me I was unsuccessful. I had already been offered the job which suited me best, but was still disappointed by the lack of communication and feedback. I expected a personal call back to discuss reasoning or give feedback, so this was surprising. Overall a straightforward and relaxed interview process. I would rate this the easiest/most relaxed out of all the retail management interviews I have attended.

Entrevista

The interview process itself was quite standard. Following my application I was invited to take their online tests (Situational Awareness, Maths and Personality), which I did speedily. I was soon after invited to an interview, or as they call it, an 'in-store leadership interview/assessment.' There were a variety of slots available for the interview, so I was able to choose one which meant that I did not need to take time of work to attend, which was very useful. I arrived at the store which the recruitment team had sent me to, to find that this was in fact, I had been sent to the wrong store (there are two Boots stores in our town). Apparently this had happened to all of the prior candidates; so I felt that it was quite lax that the recruitment team had not rung or e-mailed other candidates to let them know that the e-mail was incorrect. The store rang ahead to let the interviewer know that I would be on my way shortly, but that I would be late because of this - luckily I had been ten minutes early to my interview, so I would not be too far past the time. I called for a taxi and stood at the door to wait (it was raining outside), and after five minutes one of the women who worked at the store offered to call me a taxi or give me a lift, which was very kind of her. I arrived at the second Boots store and found someone to let my interviewer know that I had arrived, and was told to sit in the waiting area at the back of the store. I was expecting to be seen quite sharply, considering that I was already late, but I was left sitting there for a good five or ten minutes, which I spent sorting out the shelf in front of me and looking around at the work going on around the shop floor. Eventually my interviewer appeared and showed me into the office through the back for my interview. He was a lovely man who was very enthusiastic about his job, staff and the store he ran, which I found very positive and enjoyable to listen to. In fact, I very much enjoyed the interview itself, and loved learning more about what goes on 'behind the scenes' at the store. I had about ten or so questions which I wanted to ask, and he was enthusiastic and patient as he answered them. The interview lasted between 45 mins and 1hr, and I felt that it went quite well. As requested I had brought along my passport and evidence of my NI number, which were photocopied before the end of the session. I asked when we would hear back, and I was told that they would (probably) select someone later in the day as they only had one further interview to complete, that afternoon; I was also told that we would hear back either way. Overall, the selection process and interview were relatively smooth, and quite enjoyable from beginning to end. However, three weeks after the interview I had not heard back either way, so I e-mailed the recruitment center to ask if the post had been filled. It is now over a month later and I have still not been contacted, and the recruitment center has also not responded to my e-mail. I think this is very poor, as firstly it is basic politeness to let a candidate know either way, especially when you have told them that they will be told, and secondly I believe it is really important to get feedback on good or bad interviews as you may learn things which you can improve upon for next time (particularly if you do badly!)

  • Most questions were quite standard - heavily focused on leadership and providing exemplars of how you have responded to past situations.
