    I worked at Harrods full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent company which looking after their employees, with this system they get the most from those happy members of staff

    Cons

    Probably they should be more sensitive to environmental issues since their reputation is not that good in terms to protect or saving animals or our planet in general in general.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Harrods (London, England (UK)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Was called a little over a week later and had a quick phone interview. Was then asked to come in for a group assessment. In the group assessment, there were a total of 4 managers and assistant managers and an HR person that were taking notes. They were really nice so it wasn't too intimidating. We were asked questions and were given a few short tasks/presentations that we had to do individually. We were also given a few tasks/presentations that we did as groups. Overall I had a pretty good experience with this interview process.
