    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at River Island Clothing.

    Interview

    Handed Cv into store. Got a call back asking for an interview, then went into the store a few days later for an interview with the manager. The interview was quite informal and chatty. I believe group interviews are usually done, however I just had a one-to-one interview due to timing issues however the same questions were asked.
