    Part-time Sales Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at River Island Clothing (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    I handed my cv in person for the position and got a phone call a few days later asking me to come in for an interview the following week.

    There was no group interviews just a one to one interview with the manager. She asked me my availability then moved on to the interview questions. The whole thing lasted about 7 minutes and was quite straightforward.

    Interview

    Applied online, then had a brief telephone interview at where they explained the benefits for working their etc. Then had one on one interview where I had to present a comp shop and answer a few questions about why I wanted to work there etc. The whole interview was very laid back and casual, felt like a conversation rather than an interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at River Island Clothing (Waterford (Ireland)) in March 2019.

    Interview

    I applied on-line and received an interview invitation 2 days after that. I could pick a term from appointments provided 2 weeks after that.
    Interview was quick (less than 15 minutes) and questions were ordinary - what do I know about the company, why do I want to work there, when I'm available, how do I work as a part of a team, how would I approach a customer etc.
    I received email 2 days after, that they are sorry but that they have decided not to progress with my details.

    Part Time Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Liverpool, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at River Island Clothing (Liverpool, England (UK)) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Got an email inviting me to a recruitment event. Arrived in store with about eight other interviewees and got our passports/etc. checked. All got taken up into the staff room and went round introducing ourselves. The everyone gave a reason why they wanted to work for River Island and then each pair had a role-play. Some interviewees only got to play the part of the customer which I don't think really reflects their skills and is quite unfair. The whole thing lasted 25 minutes which for a group interview with about 8-10 interviewees is a quite disrespectful, I think.

    Interview

    It was disorganised; there were too many people in a small and cramped warehouse. Interviewers were not prepared, unprofessional and seemed judgemental upon our appearance. Only 2 questions were asked.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at River Island Clothing (London, England (UK)) in January 2019.

    Interview

    Was very lucky to be even given an interview and took the chance with full preparation. Made a beautiful slide show of my portfolio and presented it with professionalism.

    Was interviewed by two female colleagues who names i have, but wont shame... They seemed distant as we talked, not sure if they where having a bad day or was close to lunch break..

    The one thing about the interview that took a turn when both river island staff members ask me my AGE!!!

    As soon as I stated my age, they both looked at each other and basically ended the interview in there heads..

    I could clearly see that this was a factor!! From my point of view, yes the two staff member where younger than me, but I don’t like to be treated like that!!.

    Being professional to the end I was polite and continued the interview. Even as I left the room, I could here them laugh at each.
