    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Greggs (Derby, England) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Applied for the job and heard a week later and was invited to an interview. When I arrived I was taken to a back room which had music playing so loud I couldn’t hear what he was asking of me. After answering all the questions the interviewer asked for my availability but didn’t listen to what I was saying as he put down completely different times which was frustrating as I attend college regularly. I applied for 16 hours but he said that I would only be working 8 which is very misleading.
