    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Matalan Retail.

    Interview

    I applied online, the process took 2-3 weeks. Once I'd completed the online application I got an email inviting me to an interview 4 days later. The interview is a team interview, there was 5 of us at mine and we started off just going around and introducing ourselves. Then we completed a task where we all as a team had to style two outfits from two different departments and then sell/explain our choices to the interviewers. We then did one to one interviews with the manager and went home. Took around an hour. Then called an hour later to say I'd got the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Matalan Retail (Dewsbury, England (UK)) in May 2019.

    Interview

    The group interview/assessment was easy and quite fun. 10 people were supposed to attend the group interview but only half of us did. We were taken into an assessment room and we all sat around a table together while the supervisor talked about Matalan, explained the roles we would do and other thing such as benefits, holidays, etc.

    After the introduction, we were asked to introduce ourselves and talk about why we brought this item. This wasn't as daunting as it may sound - it was made pain free and fun with no judgement. After this, we were split into two groups and tasked with a scenario that we had to find an outfit for on a budget of £50. This was also easy and my partner and I seemed to have the same ideas. We went back to the room after 20 minutes and explained why we picked these specific outfits, this was also easy and not daunting. When that was done it was time for the one to one interviews, again, standard questions were asked and wasn't scary like some would expect.

    Overall, it was one of the most fun interviews I've had and made to be something that wasn't daunting.
