    Optical Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fareham, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boots Opticians (Fareham, England (UK)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Sloppy. Myself and the assistant manager had to wait for another staff member to join the interview which already started. And when she did arrive she seemed disinterested. They both took turns asking the questions with large amount of silence in between because I assume they weren’t prepared... It was very awkward! In fact I was glad not to get this job as they are already looking to fill this role after hiring the first time.
