Cotton On

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lower Hutt

Declined Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Cotton On (Lower Hutt)

Interview

It was a chill group interview, though it felt like there was a large group of us (10+) so it felt hard to leave a lasting impression since most of the activities/questions were done in groups.

Interview Questions
  • They gave us time to advertise a bottle of water in a group and recreate a scene with a difficult customer and what we would do

Seems like they prefer someone with retail experience. I have no experience and didn't make it to the interview round despite having participated in many co-curricular activities. I hope that they will be able to be more open to all applicants.

Interview

Group interview felt rushed and didn't feel genuine. Even as someone who is introverted, the entire process felt like it was all left to chance because you could have your hand up to answer a question and they would still ask someone else.

Interview Questions
  • What would you do if you had incoming stock and a workplace injury simultaneously happen in store?

I applied in-person. I interviewed at Cotton On

Interview

Interviewers weren't daunting. They ask the very basic retail questions so if you have answers lined up for those questions already, you're all set basically. Also, they like if you've had retail experience before. If you haven't, you might have to sell yourself a bit more.

Interview Questions
  • What have you learned from your previous experience in retail? (if applicable)

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Cotton On (Brisbane) in Oct 2021

Interview

I had an online interview booked for 9:30 - 10:00 and waited in the meeting room for 20 minutes before the manager joined and asked if I had the correct time and date for the interview and when I had informed him that I had both of those correct, he apologised profusely. Then he continued to explain that the store had written my interview down as 10:30-11:00. My entire interview was less than 10 minutes because of that and another applicant had even joined the meeting room while we were finishing up so I felt very rushed to answer questions and show off my personality. It was a weird experience because I got a rejection email and then the following day a job offer came through.

The interview process is straightforward. You will be asked a few questions surrounding your hobbies and what you can bring to this job. You will also be asked about transportation and availability.
