    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at N Brown Group in August 2017.

    Interview

    I have been asked to go to Manchester. I went(not sure why ) . The company asked me to stay over in Manchester interview was good. Next day they rejected. They could have told same day too. Or entire process would have been done via Skype. So be careful!
