    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at J Sainsbury (London, England).

    Interview

    Started out with an online application. I was then told to call the recruitment office myself and take part in a telephone interview. This consisted of a few scenarios reflecting the real work in store.
    An in-store interview with a store manager was scheduled - it was good that I could select the time and location for this. I was made to wait about half an hour after turning up at the store, the interview itself was just with the store manager and consisted of going through my background and questions about leadership.
