    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boots Opticians.

    Interview

    Applied online. Standard questions, ask your availability, and any holiday booked and can you work evenings/weekends. then a shop floor trial straight after shadowing someone. Got a phone call offering me the position a few days later.
