    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ocado (Hatfield, East of England, England (UK)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Applied Online, Received Telephone Interview few days later. Was then offered a interview with manager. around a week later. Manager was polite enough and gave a good explanation about the job role. You need to allow sufficient time to find the manager for your interview, as the site is large and you must sign in at the security office.
