I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at WHSmith (Kingston upon Hull, England (UK)) in November 2017.
The woman who interviewed me was really friendly, she took me into a private room with another lady who took notes and started firstly talking about availability, then questions including scenarios of what you’d do in that certain situation, then more about the job role uniform and salary. They also asked if I had any upcoming holidays to which I replied no.
