    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at hmv.

    Interview

    Good process, I felt comfortable enough to answer all questions despite not having a huge amount of experience, fairly relaxed compared to other interviews I have had but covered everything so I didn't have to go into the job blind. I was given the right opportunities to sell myself so I could show the skills I did have and demonstrate my passion for the media the store sells.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at hmv (Ayr, Scotland (UK)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    I had to go through a survey, featuring a small test about product knowledge and some questions about myself, which I submitted online. A few days later I got invited for an interview. It was just me and one of the store managers, who put me at ease almost immediately. I was asked about my previous experience, and some situational questions.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at hmv (Taunton, England (UK)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    Applied in November 2018, heard back about a week later inviting me for an interview. We were in a group and taken to the back office where we introduced ourselves and gave a fun fact, before explaining what our current situation was - if we were in college etc. We were then split into pairs and had to write down what skills we thought a good employee would possess.

    After this we had to tell the panel what our favourite film was and why, then what our favourite superhero was. We then had to take an item from a box they gave us and try and sell it back to them.

    I heard back about a week later and found I hadn't got the job.
