    Interview process

    My initial application was via the internet, where I filled in an extensive application form, then was invited to undertake internet based assessments. These involved numerical tests, situational judgement tests, and psychometric tests. I was then invited for a face to face interview at the location of the job. The face to face interview lasted around an hour, I was asked questions about my previous experience, including typical interview questions ("when have you provided excellent customer service?"), etc. It was quite a relaxed interview, and afterwards I was shown around the premises.

    Most difficult question

    Questions about my previous work experience which I have not been met with, such as situational aspects like dealing with difficult customers, which I rarely experience.

    Interview tips

    Revise typical interview questions, it is certainly worth Googling common interview questions and answers, as the questions are very general to your previous experience. The hardest part was the online assessments, particularly the numerical tests, which were not difficult, but the time limit makes them very difficult to answer. I'd also recommend reading around the role and the company.
