    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Co-op Group (Manchester, England (UK)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The role for a sales adviser for car insurance.
    First i did an online assessment some questions and two video questions at the end.
    Then got invited for assessment day, they began with role play as an home insurance seller, then you use their learning program to answer some questions on a piece of paper. and last a individual interview with the standard type of questions, 1 of the other candidates did get hit with co-op history questions so do your research just in case.
    The atmosphere was quite relax and everybody was friendly, role play and interview person was different member of management as candidates do them around the same time and then swap for role play and 1 on 1 interview to keep it fair i guess. the progress was lone took about 3 hours and they said they reply in 48hrs but i never got a reply.
