      Average Interview

      I applied online. I interviewed at DS Smith (United Kingdom)


      An initial informal conversation with the hiring manager. A second "interview conversation" was then arranged however it transpired to be a competency interview with another person, which was not what was expected. After the second interview, I heard nothing back at all. I left it a few days then emailed the internal recruitment team, two weeks later, still no response at all.
