    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at B&M Retail in September 2016.

    Interview

    The process took 2 days.
    I handed in my cv at the new B&M store, got an interview the next day.

    When i was taken i for the interview i was asked if i still wanted to continue- because i had said that i preferably wanted a sales floor job but there wasnt any available.

    The interviewer had a sheet with about 20 questions on that were a mixture of 'tell me' questions and just questions about when i would be able to work.

    At the end i was told that there was 2 positions available and that there was still 2 more people to be interviewed. So they would get in contact in the next couple of days.

    I never heard back from them. So i guess i didnt get it!

    We had to go to a building where we had to make a poster in a group, to see how we interacted with others and we also had to transport an egg with only paper and sellotape and string, and drop it from a height so that the egg stayed intact. we asked questions about the company and then had one to one interviews where hours and dates were discussed with one of the managers. After this we had a two day induction where we learned more about how b and m began, and where we are today.
