    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Hays plc in April 2017.

    Interview

    4 rounds of interviews for such an entry level role.
    It feels like you are applying for a Goldmansac career and gotten accepted and ended up in a data entry career. Too much for a company like them to make such many interviews for a small role. If you are keen for it, or are into force selling... yes, this will be a perfect career path for you...
