    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Homebase Limited (Stoke-on-Trent, England) in April 2016.

    Interview

    1st was by telephone approx 50 mins long. General chat about why your looking for a new role, what your average day at work is presently. 2nd Interview by a Store Manager approx 1 hour 30 mins, informal over coffee, was told at the end that I would be put forward to the next stage. 3rd Interview with another Store Manager approx 2 hours 15 mins, followed a structured set of questions, had to provide a presentation and a pitch.
