    Interview Details

    Went on the Harvey nics website applied for sales consultant role! Got a call back from HR. Was given a mini telephone interview asked about previous experiences, what is excellent customer service to me, about the role. Passed telephone interview was booked in for one on one with department manager. Attended interview one week later which was actually with two people. A little intimidating but still tried my best at answering all questions.
    After a 45 minute interview I left. Got a call back 3 weeks later by HR saying I received the job.
