    for customer based roles they ask u the following

    Why do u want this job
    have u had previous customer sales experience before
    have u had to deal with a difficult customer before and how did u resolve it
    they ask you have u had any great customer experience or received any

    then they give u a 2 simple dead easy maths questions

    like if a customer bought X number of programs for £X then how much in total would that cost

    then they ask u if a person wanted X number of program and each one cost £X and they person had £X note what would the change be

    so simple interview if u know how to answer

    what is the role u are going for

    I am assuming these question apply for any customer based role
