    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Greggs.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call to arrange an interview a few days later. The manager who interviewed me was lovely and was very laid back. She didn't rush me to answer questions and allowed me time to think before answering more tricky questions.
