    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hamleys in June 2018.

    Interview

    Waited quite a while for the manager to set up our interview. Small group interview that went pretty quick, task to promote an item and sell it (to the manager) but required a lot of enthusiasm and thinking outside the box
