    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Specsavers (Lincoln, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Started with a Group interview. Interviewees were asked to get to know each other and repeat back what they had learned. This was followed by a fairly simple English and Maths tests, then asked one of 3 questions ('If you were a Movie Character what would it be?','Who is your hero?' and a question I can't remember)

    This was followed by a callback one-on-one interview 2 weeks later
