    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at River Island Clothing in August 2013.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview followed by group interview. Group interview was mainly team building exercises with a few questions of how we'd solve certain problems. Hiring was a phone call a week later.
