    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at River Island Clothing (Omagh, Northern Ireland (UK)).

    Interview

    A recruitment event. Group of 10 of us all did a little intro. Then the next 2 exercises were to decide who got the job. First exercise the manager tried to listen to 10 of us talking over each other together about why we wanted to work there. Second exercise she put us in 2s to role-play customer and employee, but again tried to overhear 5 groups talking over one another rather than getting us to take it in turns. I have no idea how through this process she could pick someone for the job.
