  • Apply, telephone interview, store interview, get the job, stay a year, leave.

  • The recruitment process has changed since the above responses. Now; you complete an application form and submit with your cv. These are reviewed by head office recruitment team. If you pass this stage:
    A member of the recruitment team will call you for a telephone interview consisting of around 10-12 questions. This is the hardest stage to get through as only a small number progress to the next stage which is

    A combined work trial and interview. You’ll spend about an hour on the shop floor where they assess your customer service , rapport building and engagement, enthusiasms, communication and your manner and attitude when handling the animals. The interview is with a store manager or assistant manager and while quite relaxed and informal there are 15-20 questions that have to be covered. Overall the managers have an assessment guide to how they should judge candidates; but it’ll come down to the interviewing managers decision.


    In my case 2 people made it to the final interview for one role.
