    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at J Sainsbury (London, England) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Applicaation --> formal interview --> formal stage 2 interview passed off as an informal chat.

    - No pre-screening or telephone interview.
    - The interviewers were 15 mins late at both interviews and rushed the overall interview.
    - I waited 3 weeks for feedback after my first interview and had no follow up after the second interview.
    - HR is a mess, their phone lines constantly advise they're closed during normal working hours.
    -I was left to assume that I was unsuccessful when I saw the role re-advertising 3 weeks later
