Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at MH Alshaya (Riyadh) in May 2017

Interview

Similar to any other interview but depends on the division where the employee is joining. There are support functions like IT, Finance, Logistics, and HR where the interviews are relevant to the division, while for brands, it depends on wether you’re working as an operation, staff, or store manager.

Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at MH Alshaya (Kuwait City) in Dec 2016

Interview

Whatever of what M. Hamza is trying to reply on the massive complains on here, and defend the company image, but on one can cover up the sun with one finger...I Just want to warn everyone about the unprofessional attitude of their recruitment team, as they never respect their promises or appointments with candidates, and the worse they will never write back or reply if you made a follow upon an appointment, they will just ignore you, which will impact any candidate morality and self-esteem, and this can figure out all what is happening inside this company... Also note that each brand has its own tribe (ethnic) staff from head of the brand to the lower level, and if you don't belong to that very specific tribe or ethnic you will never get a chance to get the job or interview even if you are far qualified for the role as Bill Gates for Microsoft or Steve jobs for Apple! Bottom line, Al Shaya recruiting team need to be truly scrutinized first from top to bottom, having said that because they are the first image or the first glass door of the company, unfortunately, I believe that's where the largest hidden iceberg is. I had read many negative comments on here about the recruitment process, but now after having experience with this called recruitment team I was even shocked by their nonprofessional and negative attitude, as previous comments stated before and want to confirm it again, that your time with these guys will be a pure waste of time, just don't believe what they will write to you in emails , if you have a career plan just move forward elsewhere, otherwise you will only regret your time wasted with this type of nonprofessional called recruitment team 1- The smell is spreading day after day, and the low level of the recruitment team are losing a lot of opportunities for Al Shaya by not hiring very experienced professional that absolutely will contribute to company objectives. 2- The hiring process, and decision making is being affected a lot by having each single brand being dominated by a specific tribe or ethnic. 3- Through experience in the gulf, it's very famous that positions in Al Shaya is been given by HOD, to their Ex colleagues, friends or even girlfriends back in their own tribe/ethnic, and same goes for compensation and remuneration customized based on the color of the passport.

MH Alshaya

Anonymous Employee in Ḩawallī

Accepted Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview
Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at MH Alshaya (Ḩawallī) in Nov 2013

Interview

Telephone interview x 2 Day long interview process at office in Kuwait with additional day to see Kuwait. I met HR and some other business people, most stated and re-stated the fact Kuwait was a dry country but there was a lively underground drinking scene. One Director told me your couldn't access porn on the internet in Kuwait unless you have a VPN. The interview day was long, 8-5 back to back interviews, I got offered the job and accepted it. I don't regret it, I learnt a lot, mostly around how to cope in adversity. How to gather information when none is available and I will now always ask a ton of questions at interview onboarding stage. Never take anything as red with this company. Push for a high salary, they have salary bands but make exceptions, and trust me once you're in there and working you'll regret it if you don't!

Interview Questions
  • Tell me why you are interested in joining Alshaya in Kuwait ... this was asked by 6 different people in 1 day. There is a competency framework and interview for management grades, its poorly executed, a tick box exercise.
