    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at IKEA (Bristol, England).

    Interview

    Had to drive 130 miles for my interview a group stage I’d expect to find for a red coat at butlins. Told all about how successful the people interviewing us had been. Then given a series of childish activities to do then a 5 minutes interview. Bearing in mind I live 140 miles away from my nearest store the feedback I got was I hadn’t visited an ikea ... they haven’t opened one anywhere near where I live so couldn’t and then I hadn’t worked with furniture.... they could have read that in my CV before making me drive 260 miles and waste a day of my life
