Interview Tips

We conducted a National Christmas Casual Survey and found these tips from real successful Christmas Casual applicants at Myer;

  • Everyone must go through a group interview that involves a creative group activity
  • These activities include role play, navigating the store, practice selling items to a partner and answering questions in front of a group
  • Example questions in the interview could include scenarios (e.g. What would you do if…?) and behavioural questions (e.g. give me an example of a time where…?)

Perks and Pros

From our survey we found that these aspects of Myer are what Christmas casuals enjoyed;

  • Staff discounts are said to be between 10% and 20% depending on sales, time periods and brands
  • The Christmas casual cohort! Lots of the respondents said that the best part of the job (besides getting paid, obviously) was the friends that they made while working
