    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Maplin Electronics (Woking, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Asked me to look around the store, then collected me for my interview asking me standard questions (teamwork, customer service​ etc). Then asked what product caught my eye and how I'd sell it - remember products in their store!
