    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Matalan Retail (Walsall, England (UK)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    The application was easy but took a while for them to get back to you. The email offering an interview stated that it would be an introduction, practical exercise and then a one to one interview but when arriving it was actually just the interview. The interview itself was easy and relaxed. Nothing difficult or unexpected just make sure you have researched Matalan beforehand in terms of their values.
