    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Transact.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview which was about 20 minutes with HR which is relaxed just general interview questions and some company knowledge.
    Shortly after this was two online tests reading and maths. Surprisingly harder than you would think.
    Once these had been passed there is an assessment day with a few tasks and a further interview with HR and a Regional Manager.
    In the end a really good experience.
