I interviewed at Boots

Interview

It went well. Felt relaxed, no hard questions, easy to talk to staff and an overall good experience. Took around 30 to 40 minutes in total. My only mishap was that there must have been a miscommunication with regards to my interview time as when I showed up for the original time, I was told there must be a mistake as the manager had already left for home. This was easily resolved though.
