    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Kingfisher in March 2014.

    Interview

    - 2 x Interviews with the Graduate Recruitment Bureau, online video interview in French to test your language skills and a one day assessment centre. The assessment center consisted of different parts: an English interview, a French interview, a presentation that was prepared in advance and then a group exercise at the end of the day. Therefore a long process.
