When I was working for this store you didn't need a CV. You had to fill in an application form. Now most shops have yo apply on line so I couldn't possibly say how long it will take to hear back.

I got a phone call from management, inviting me for a interview around a week after handing my CV into the store. I then got a phone call just hours after my interview to tell me that I had been successful and had gotten the job.
