    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at John Lewis (London, England (UK)) in October-2017.

    Interview

    After your online application, you are invited to perform some online test (logic, comportemental, behevior with client and among the team). Once done, if you're successfull, they offer you to take part in a group assesment for about 1.5 hour. After that you wait for their call for the answer.

    Interview Questions

    • They give you first a real time scenario with different group of client, you need to read it, all the tools and process at your disposal, and then with another candidate, you must talk about how you would solve different scenario issue.
      After that you have a multiple answer test where you must say how you would be more or less likely to behave in a scenario.
      All the process is timed.   1 Answer
