    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Johnston Press (Edinburgh, Scotland) in November 2014.

    Interview

    It was three stage interview - initial chat, a presentation and a final interview about the position. It was a throughout positive experience and a quite standard one for sales-related positions. The presentation was on one of the products I was involved in selling at later stage and they do expect to show creativity during this process. I've had two interviewers in the room.
