I interviewed at DFS Group (Hong Kong)

Interview

Took around 1-2 months to finish the whole process. A total of 3-round interviews. First, phone interview with HR. Second, the assessment center. It would take you a half day. Analyzing two cases with a team of 3 and do presentations to two managerial level panelists. The cases are not too hard. Final, interview with business leaders, including the HR director and the department head. Basic HR questions, not. sure if they had picked someone when they are interviewing me because the whole process took only 30 mins and they didn't seem interested in knowing me more.

Interview Questions
  • Describe a situation where you worked with a group of people that are smarter than you. Why you?

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied in-person. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at DFS Group in Jan 2018

Interview

5 rounds. First round phone interview that lasted 20 minutes, second round assessment center that lasted 5 hours, third round psychometric test that lasted 2.5 hours done at home, fourth round panel interview with hiring managers that lasted 1 hour, fifth round with directors which I never got to go. Sent two emails to get an update on the outcome weeks after the fourth round, but did not receive a reply. Basically a lot of time was wasted not only on their side but on the candidates’ side as well. Also, they won’t bother sending you a rejection letter. They would just ignore you and leave you hanging if they decide to reject you. So overall a negative experience as the whole hiring process and attitude towards candidates was dealt with unprofessionally.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at DFS Group (Singapore) in Feb 2017

Interview

Phone interview, assessment centre, panel interview, interview with MD(?) Would rather not have so many rounds just for a store operations manager, it did not feel necessary. However, HR team was friendly and did not make the whole process intimidating. However it would be 15 people ( split into 3 groups) with 6 people judging. Be prepared.

Interview Questions
  • They gave 2 case studies for us to review

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at DFS Group (Singapore) in Dec 2016

Interview

Phone call during which you are asked simple questions like why DFS, your motivation to join the company and strengths. They also asked for expected salary. After that is the AC. We were split into two groups. Each group worked on two cases and presented them to the pane. The cases were very simple. One question was about how a manager should deal with an under-performing team member, and the other question was about what strategies should a manager take when the restriction of alcohol purchase is lifted at the airport. After each group presented, they would have to take questions from the panel and the other group. I got through the AC but not the third round, which were mostly on behavioral questions. My advice for the AC is to be yourself, and ask smart questions. It would also help to research on the company's business before-hand.

Interview Questions
  • Where will a DFS career take you? Tell us why we should hire you. Tell us about a time you made a mistake at work.

There was a short phone interview where they asked a few questions. It took around 15 minutes. After that I was asked to go for to the assessment center where they went through the program. There was a short introduction and then they gave case studies to groups. Time management was very important because they gave 10 minutes to discuss and 5 minutes to present.
