    • At the assessment day I found it to be very stressful in a sense that there were 25 candidates on the day. Therefore I felt it was very difficult to find ways to stand out during the presentation and in answering there basic Q&A's.
      The IQ test was very easy nothing particularly complex.

    Sales Account Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at Softcat in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    This was more of an assessment day rather than an interview, even though words of interview were used. I was a bit put off when I realised that it turned into a panel/group interview. The day consisted of 2 activities. 1 was to present yourself why you would want to work for Softcat and the position you’re applying for. The other activity was a scenario where you were stranded and you had to rank 10 items that you salvaged from the wreckage. There were a group of 15 people. The staff of the company seemed very friendly and was compassionate about Softcat and their work culture was more of a friendly atmosphere. I have rated this as difficult because the best advice to give is to just be yourself but this can be very difficult as you are faced with 14 other people and you could get the short straw and be missed out. To me it feels like a pot luck game and hoping for the person to come along and shed light. Be positive no matter the out come but be yourself.
