    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Specsavers in July 2020.

    Interview

    Really nice and relaxed. Applied and got a call the same day asking me to go for interview. Was very comfortable. Asked me generic interview questions, but was more like a chat than an interview. Just getting to know you and see if you would fit in with the team.
