    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at B&Q (Loughborough, England) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I sent in my application online after which I had to complete an online test. I then received an e-mail inviting me for a phone interview the next day. They asked me about my eligibility to work in the UK and then some competency based questions. They got back to me the same day via e-mail.
