    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Thorntons (UK) in July 2018.

    Interview

    Did online application form and got invited to an interview within 3 days it was a relaxed interview the manager and assistant manager interviewed me they were really friendly and give me more information on what a senior assistant was it’s basically a supervisor position.

    My advice would be don’t be nervous my interview was very relaxed and the employers interviewing me were lovely just be chatty and smile and don’t forget to give eye contact also look over questions and answers 1-2 days before your interview (good luck)
