    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hamleys (London, England (UK)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Interview was a gorup interview with 20 or more people. Predominately young university students looking for part time jobs to go along with studies. Interview was really fun and bubbly. They are just looking for people who stand out. Group activities were straight forward, they are looking for people who are outspoken and engaging.
    If the group interview was successful then you would get called for a 1-1 interview, where they ask you about your work schedules.
