    Thank you for your review on the interview process. Though we are looking for candidates that align with our culture and having a good sense of humor is always nice, it's not the only thing we look out for in the assessment and interview process. We do look for candidates to align with our core values of being Fun, Passionate, Responsible and Intelligent, and will be assessing candidates against these, alongside how they demonstrate the right behaviours and competencies to be successful in the role. The Sales position doesn't necessarily require previous experience, so ensuring you can showcase how you'd approach the role and have the right attitude is key! Thanks Rachel Cowell - Recruitment Manager

    Sales Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    I attended an assessment centre which went relatively smoothly. We were then set a task to record answers to various questions post interview. I was then unable to record my answers for over a week post assessment centre due to IT complications. I believe this greatly impacted my ability to provide a good recording.

    Completed application online, then a quick assessment, then a video interview. Video interview was easy enough, you were able to click 'next question' when you were ready to move on which made me feel more at ease. Questions were relatively straightforward.
