New Look Assessment Centre Interview
« on: August 20, 2013, 06:03:56 AM »
  

Often at a New Look interview you will be asked to pick an outfit. This might be for a celebrity or for a typical customer such as a 20 year old girl’s work outfit. It is important to be very familiar with the stock that is currently being sold and the prices. You would want to pick an expensive outfit to make the company more money. You will also want to accessorise it, so include a bag, jewellery, shoes and maybe a cardigan or coat as well. You will have limited time to do this.



You will be asked about the company and why you want to work for them. Make sure that you compliment their products as well as company ethos. You can found out about both of these by visiting their website. Make sure that you know this information backwards as it can be harder to recall things like this when you are nervous, as you are likely to be at the interview.

It is possible that you will have to do a group exercise as well as having a 1 to 1 interview and there may be an ice breaking exercise as well. It is so important to work as hard as you can to stay relaxed, let your personality come through but not be over bearing. This is not easy and you will need to stay focussed in order to do it.

It can be difficult having the 1 on 1 interview at the end of the session as you could get tired by then. Try to keep your energy levels up, eat well before you go and try to stay calm as stress can be draining and sap your energy. Try to smile a lot, but not too much, be friendly, polite and remember to interact with the other candidates as well as the interviewers.

Questions
  • Tell me about yourself
  • Why should we hire you?
  • What do you expect from a supervisor?
  • Describe a typical work week?
  • How do you handle stress and pressure?
  • What are you passionate about?
  • Why do you want to work here?
  • How do you evaluate success?
  • Give some examples of teamwork
Good luck with your interview and let us know how it went!
