    Interview

    A group interview that involved situational judgement questions, talking about yourself and selling a product to a customer.

    Staff were very friendly and passionate.

    Would recommend that you find the balance between talking enough and not talking too much for these types of group interviews.

    I was invited for a group interview. There they split us into groups and got us to fill in a bunch of scenario based questions, then a form with our details and availability. We were then given a list of tasks and as a group we had to sort them in the order we would do them in and write why we would do it in that order.
