    Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Preston, North West England, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AO (Preston, North West England, England) in May 2020.

    Interview

    Was an unusual experience as it was completed on zoom due to lockdown, but I enjoyed the role play and a few of the interview questions really got me thinking. I wanted to come across as professional and bubbly as possible due to not having the face to face contact
