    That's odd, I never got a maths test either. They do that in interviews?
    it was a mental maths thing, though the manager that made me do it has left now. it wasn't hard but just made me feel under a lot of pressure >.<

    They're not a bad place to work for, I worked there for 3 years and the only thing that really bugged me was the till point conversations as you had to get a certain percentage. My interview was basic as well, I never knew they did group interviews.

    Do you just have to answer the maths questions off the top of your head or is it like a written test ?

    Hi all,
    I have my WHsmith interview tomorrow! I kinda got told today if I am available for interview tomorrow. This is pretty much my first interview. I really hope i get it, i'm really nervous for it. My interview is at an airport, so i was wondering if anyone new, is it more likely to do a one-to-one interview or a group one? and what about the maths test? what is it like? how long do you have for it? what are the questions like? I also heard that they give you a task which is to find a book for them in WHsmith? is this true? Also how long do you think the interview will last for?

    Hey, I've been busy so haven't read the thread so not sure if there is already an answer so I'm going to post this anyway. I applied online and got a call today but unfortunately didn't get it in time so got a voicemail and it was a woman saying if i'm interested in employment as there are a few shifts available on a saturday morning/afternoon or sunday and asked if I would ring back and arrange a short 20 minute interview. Just wondering if anyone else had this 20 minute interview and if so what sort of things they ask etc. I really need a job and now I have an interview I want to be prepared so can anyone offer any help/tips please??
