    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Associated British Foods.

    Interview

    I applied online for the graduate supply chain scheme got an email a few weeks after the deadline to arrange a phone a interview. Phone interview was pretty straight forward and the interviewer did try to put me at ease. The key is to do your research on the company and show passion for wanting to work in FMCG. They got me to be pretty quick and I recieved good feedback to improve my interview skills.
