    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Royal Mail (Kidderminster, England (UK)) in October 2016.

    This review is regarding the first response email you get after applying. It is an automated email you get a few minutes after submitting an online application and it has a link you click to take you to 2 groups of online tests. 1 is accuracy on numbers and barcodes that you can take your time on but the second test is timed and far more difficult.

    Interview Questions

    • You have to compare a series of numbers and codes on one side of the screen to similar or same numbers on the other side of the screen. A timer ticks away at the top and you get 30 seconds.   1 Answer
