    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oxford, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Games Workshop (Oxford, England) in December 2019.

    Interview

    Informal, seemed as if they had chosen someone before I had even arrived and was more of a formality then an actual candidate. The questions were vague and often didn’t make sense with the position I was trying to get (so vague I forgot most of them) I’ve been told the company has a very nepotistic view of selection so it wouldn’t come as a shock to me that the process was more of a façade
