    Had my group interview at WH Smith last week so I just thought I would help anyone out who may be wondering what the group interview was like etc

    To start with the manager of the store greeted us and told us a bit about WH Smith and the history. There was about 11 people being interviewed. We then had to introduce ourselves to the person sitting next to us and in front of the whole group you would then have to introduce the person you've been talking to and tell everyone what you've just learnt about them.

    We were then divided into groups of 4 I think, and with your group you were given a scenario sheet where you had certain situations and you had to write down which situation you would prioritise first. You and your group would then have to explain to the rest of the room which scenarios you prioritised and why

    After that we then had to do a 10 minute very basic maths test, if you pass you then do a quick one on one interview. If you fail you get sent home. I got the job

    Thanks for the heads up! Got my interview tomorrow, praying it goes well!
