    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kingfisher (London, England (UK)) in March-2018.

    Interview

    Entretien téléphonique avec un DRH puis entretien avec la responsable IP (environ 1 h). Entretien très décontracté avec des personnes prenant le temps d'essayer de me comprendre (je ne parlais pas parfaitement anglais en postulant, c'est d'ailleurs pour cela que je voulais partir).
