    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Thorntons (UK).

    Interview

    Really nice group interview process, employees were friendly and encouraging. They gave us some group tasks to do for example 2 truths 1 lie. I was called a few days later to confirm that I had the job and started a week after. All in all a positive experience.
