Marks and Spencer (M & S) Telephone Interview

#1

Hi Guys,

Just wondered if anyone had any experience of the telephone interview at M&S.
I recently got invited for the telephone interview at M&S after applying for the Graduate IT role in M&S head office.
They have not given much explanation of how it will be like apart from the basic overview that it will last 20-30 minutes, and that I will be asked a series of competency based questions.

Any help would be great.
Thanks.

Hi Everyone,

I am not sure if I should be doing this, but here goes. I was asked the following questions during my telephone interview (for the graduate scheme) at Marks & Spencer:

Why have you chosen M&S ?

Why have you chosen the IT Graduate Scheme within M&S ?

Do you have any concerns about working at M&S ?

Tell me about a decision you had to make ?

Tell me about another decision you had to make, where you had to change the way you were doing work ?

Tell me about a time when you had to work with limited resources, how you managed that ?

Tell me about an experience when you were a part of the team ?

How did you ensure quality in your teamwork task ?

All the best for the interview…I hope you all succeed.

Regards
Wiz Kid
