    Sales Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Belper, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Buildbase (Belper, England) in March 2019.

    Interview

    From the initial contact the actual interview all information was accurate, professional and the response time was amazingly quick. Matt was not only professional but extremely knowledgeable about the company and made me feel at ease. I felt comfortable to ask questions and felt that overall it would be a wonderful place to work.

    I would recommend not only the company and their products but also as an potential employer in future.
