    Interview

    Applied online through SEEK, a week later I received a phone call, they went through my resume and discussed the position further with me. I was then invited to attend a group interview in their CBD store. At the group interview they asked a lot of behavioural questions, we had to do a group activity and then there was 1:1 interviews with HR representatives. From there they asked more about your resume and any previous roles you've had and then what your store preferences were and what department you'd ideally like to work in.

    2 weeks later I received a phone call telling me I'd been successful and they gave me all the information for the orientation session the following week.
