    Interview process

    My telephone interview lasted around 30 minutes and was with the HR Business Partner for the North. She was very pleasant which made the experience a lot less stressful. As I was being interviewed for the role of an Account Manager there were a lot of questions regarding my experience working in retail. After I was successful I was asked to the Head Office in Manchester for a face to face interview with the same lady and the Regional Sales Manager. They were very friendly and again focused on my experiences working in retail. There was a lot of questions regarding progression and development and why I wanted to leave my current part time job.

    Interview tips

    Make sure you link your answers to the company values: Integrity, Courage, Teamwork and Commitment. They offer a lot of training so its obvious they are interested in people who want to develop themselves, work their way up and progress. Saying you are mobile seemed to be a huge bonus as well.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    I had a field day instead of attending an assessment centre. This was a chance for me to shadow somebody for the day to see if the role was something I would enjoy. I was picked up at half 8 by an Account Manager and spent the day asking her questions and seeing what the role involved. It was very enjoyable and extremely helpful as I have never known a company to do this.
