    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Dunelm in June 2015.

    Interview

    The process took 3 weeks altogether. I applied online and received an email the next day stating they were interested. I had a telephone interview the next day which was average but some questions were strange. I was told I would be contacted within 5 days however it took them over a week to tell me I had been successful. I then had a face-to-face interview the next week which seemed casual and just a chat and easier than the telephone interview as many questions were the same.
