    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sykes Cottages (Chester, England) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Everyone involved was super friendly and the process itself was stress-free. The interview lasted approx 1 hour and it was great to be given the opportunity to ask for more information about the role itself and the company. I received feedback within a couple of days and a formal offer with paperwork the following week. I am now really looking forward to getting started with Sykes in the next couple of weeks.
