    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Big Yellow Self Storage Company.

    Interview

    Quick test about your general knowledge just to see if you can think quick and able to resolve certain brain teasers. Then a nice chat with the manager which is only about previous work experience and personality. After that you will be asked to go on a 2nd interview which is similar to the first one but in more detail and more about the sales side. After you are offered the job you are invited for a trial day where you can see how the role really works which was very helpful.

    Sales Advisor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Big Yellow Self Storage Company (Tolworth, England (UK)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview first, wasn’t too bad just getting to know you and a few common interview questions.

    Got invited to 1:1 interview and was awful! Did test to start with. Asked me to sell a box to him! Didn’t really feel comfortable doing this as a box could sell itself! Then went on to ask a further 20 questions all about sales! Way to many questions for just a simple job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Big Yellow Self Storage Company (London, England (UK)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    After applying online been invited for an interview. Had to do some mathematics test(lot.of percentages) and write an email to a customer who wants to cancel their subscription. After that a face to face interview with the store manager with standard competency questions. After the interview they never bothered to get back to me, on their career website my application status is still 'being processed'. Interview process is good, but lack of response is unprofessional and disappointing.

    A very long process for a sales advisor position. This roles wasn't as advertised by the company. Make it more clear at start and after hours of interviews that this job is basically one step up from cold calling and a lot of nasty cleaning.
