- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Alliance & Leicester in August 2011.Interview Details
Went on the company website, uploaded a CV and after many months i received an email asking that I do to tests online namely IQ test with numbers & a personality test by SHL. Then had telephone interview based on sales acumen general likability, so I suggest you just be as open & interactive as possible.
The 1 to 1 interview is normally in 1 go but its a panel of two senor managers. (if you're asked to have a two part interview that's good it means you've been shortlisted as one of the best candidates & they need to decide whether to hire just one or stretch the budget by getting more than one).

So I advise you to only apply for the smaller branches)Interview QuestionsNegotiation DetailsGenerally speaking once an offers on the table you may name your terms.Accepted OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
