    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Thrifty Car and Van Rental (Exeter, England)


    Brief and waited two weeks for a reply and was called in and was interviewed with Department Head, a male and another person, a female from HR that took notes. I was asked to sign in at the reception area. I provided a hand shake to the both people and introduced myself.
    They introduced themselves to me and proceeded to tell me something about the role and what they were looking for from the potential candidate and I acknowledged and proceed to tell them somethink about myself and basically went through my work history.
    They asked me to construct a basic letter to a client requesting further information.

    Can I get on with people in a office environment.
