Sainsbury's

Hi all, Got a bit of an odd request. I'm a Project Manager at Sainsbury's based in Holborn and was wondering if anyone would be able to give me a tour of their London Big4 office?? I've never been in their office and I would like to visualise what I'm striving for. Willing to meet up for a coffee before hand or have an initial call. Coffee's on me! TIA

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sainsbury’s (United Kingdom)

    Interview

    Simple process, one step interview. Usual competency/experience based questions. Formal interview in terms of how an interview is conducted but informal in the delivery and much more about getting to know if you are a right fit for the team and business
    Interview

    Tell me about time you worked with difficult stakeholders?
