    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Screwfix in February 2020.

    Interview

    Applied online. Then did an online assessment. Then I did a phone interview. Then an in person interview. The interview took 30minutes. The online application was long and detailed. The phone interview was very short jsut asking could you work the hours and be fully flexible. The in person interview was two people one writing and the other person was asking the questions. Very relaxed interview.
