    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at hmv (Hereford, England) in November 2014.


    Applied online, the application wasn't hard. Just the usual type of application with a few questions about what music/films/games you're in to.

    Didn't hear anything back from them for nearly a month! But they finally got back to me by telephone inviting me in for an interview.

    The interview was very laid back. First thing I did was fill out a sheet of paper with questions about music games films and all sorts. Just to see how your knowledge is. Then the second part was just a quick one to one interview just to speak about my past experience and where I've worked and once again to talk about what hobbies and things you're in to. Very laid back and easy interview.
