    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Boots (Nottingham, England (UK)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied direct with cv and covering letter after seeing vacancy advertised on Boots careers. Contacted by a recruiter, who suggested I consider a different vacant role instead of the one I'd applied for. Said I wanted a marketing role. Invited to a first round interview, which include a maths and competency test, as well as a competency based interview, and CV walk through. Invited to a second interview approximately 2 weeks later with a different, more senior manager.
