    Pros

    you get to talk to cheerful customers and talk about their holiday plans which in turn gives you lots of ideas for your next vacations.

    Cons

    The job can get boring and monotonious at times and the challenging customers you have to deal with at times.

    Travel Money Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hereford, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sainsbury's Bank (Hereford, England (UK)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Online application. Involved answering questions, best and worst scenarios. Got a text the next day confirming I had been shortlisted for an interview. At the interview you sign in at the customer service desk, where the interviewer meets you. Taken to interview room. The interview involves 3 stages Answer yes/no questions. Then a few normal interview questions, like, "why do you want to work at sainsbury's?" Then the last part is a timed 20 minute maths test. Fairly easy. They just look to see if you know what sums to do incase of manual trading. You are allowed a calculator. Questions like, exchange £500 in to € with exchange rate of 1.29 etc. Dress smart/casual.
