    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Dunelm (Nottingham, England) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Went through an agency so there were several stages there but once at Dunelm I was interviewed by the store manager looking at my CV and how I work, then 2 weeks later I had an interview with the area manager who did a very similar exercise but asked very detailed and probing questions.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you rate the store between 1-10   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Done through an agency so was handled for me
