    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Lengthy. Lots of testing, which is understandable for an entry level role, but interview was based around questions on theory - which is entirely academic and not applicable to the role itself. Although, having just graduated with a first class degree I knew some answers, it seemed rather silly to ask a suite of theory questions. Why bother with qualifications.
