    Click and Collect Personal Shopper Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Coles (Melbourne) in August 2020.

    Interview

    I don't know if this will help anyone, but I applied for this position and received an email a week later inviting me to a video interview, which was a bit unfamiliar. The platform that was used was easy to understand and it gave you 30 seconds to read the question and 1 minute to answer. Overall, it was a simple, pretty non-confrontational experience and I am still waiting to hear back.
