    What To Do In a LUSH Interview

    This may seem like a strange post to pop on my blog but bear with me (it may help a few of you out trust me). If you are subscribed to my YouTube channel (click here) you may have noticed that my ‘How to Get a Job at LUSH’ video has almost 30,000 views and My Experiences Working at LUSH’ has almost 40,000 views… that’s a lot of views! So in continuing with my little LUSH series that I have going on (and most importantly to answer more of your questions), I thought that it was about time that I did a video on ‘What to Do in a LUSH Interview’ (click here). Now I am not someone who is making up these videos because I am just a LUSH lover, I actually worked for the company for 3 years and I did get involved in the recruitment process for the Reading store when I was there. So in comparing LUSH’s interview process with other retail stores, I would quite happily say that it is very different. Depending on the store and the manager, you may be invited to a single interview combined with a shop floor trial, or, just a group interview with lots of other people attending (and trust me they do get very busy). But please note, you may be required to attend both types of interviews! Now you may at this point be freaking out and wondering what on earth you would do in both interview situations but don’t worry, I have covered this in my ‘What to Do in a LUSH Interview’ video (click here). Just to give you all a heads up, LUSH at this time of year hire for the Christmas period so if you are wanting a part time or full time job at LUSH, now is the best time to apply (I started off as a Christmas temp and then managed to stay on part time).

    My Top Tips:
    - Be confident and just go for it- you will surprised on how much credit you will get for doing this.
    - Demo, demo, demo- whether you are in a shop floor trial or a group interview, grab a bath bomb and demo it in some water, or grab a massage bar and give someone a hand massage.
    - Do a little research before going to the interview- this could be on bathbombs, facemasks, campaigns, soaps or what certain ingredients benefit the body.
    - Check out some of LUSH’s campaigns before the interview- trust me, you will probably be asked which one was your favourite.
    - A favourite product and why- it may be worth having a few up your sleeve just in case they ask for more than one.
    - Think of a sales environment that you've been in before- often it is asked what you would do in a positive/negative situation (a classic example would be if a customer complained about a product).
    - Think about why you want to work at LUSH- perhaps you are eager to learn more about beauty and what certain ingredients benefit the body.
    - Practice, Practice Practice- maybe it would settle your nerves if did some demos on a family member or a friend? Or, you could pop into store and grab some advice off from a fellow Lushie.

    There are so many things that LUSH could pull out on you at a LUSH interview, but these are some of the common ones that are usually asked. I really hope that all of these videos help you and if you do have any questions please do not hesitate me at eltoriasecrets@gmail.com.
