    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Maplin Electronics (London, England) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Quick and easy. However it seemed like they needed staff fast, so it didn't feel much like an interview. More like a "get on board with us, we're desperate and want to go home early" meeting.
