    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Homebase Limited.

    Interview

    Short informal interview, I was asked several questions mainly about customer service. Then there was a short group session. We had to introduce ourselves and explain why we wanted the role. Then we were given a few items sold in the shop (brush, plant pot, cleaning cloth) and we each had to choose one and pretend to sell it to a customer. Then we watched a few induction videos
