I signed in at the customer service desk and was taken down by an employee and was told to wait in the canteen. Waited for around 15 minutes until I was called in... there was the manager who asked me the questions and an employee who was writing it all down. The interview is in 3 parts, they first ask you all the legal questions, then 4 scenario gassed questions and lastly they told me to go on this tablet and search an item and tell them where you can find it and how much is in stock.
