Advice to Management
Great culture, great people
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EE (Aberdeen, Scotland) in November 2017.
Apply online, immediately do a screening test. National insurance and stuff. Couple days later got sent an online test. This is probably the trickiest part of the entire process. It’s an algorithm set to judge your personality. Got a phone call a couple days later from someone from recruitment to say I was successful in the test. Did a quick 5 minute interview over the phone. What do you know about EE etc. Got invited to a store interview there and then over the phone. Interview consisted of me, the regional manager and the store manager. Both extremely friendly! Mocks tests and then a full interview getting to know you. I asked lots of questions about possibly progression and they were very helpful in answering my questions. Was more of a friendly discussion than anything else. Got a call the next day from the recruitment man to offer me a position.
