    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bestway Group (London, England) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Disorganised and messy, very much felt looked down on throughout the experience. Basic roles have plenty of aspects you should be looking to find out about potential staff. Focus more on the people you're interviewing rather than basic, boring questions that add nothing to the process and tell you nothing about who you're interviewing.
