    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Softcat (Bristol, England (UK)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Was approached on LinkedIn. Complete some simple/easy personality tests online then invited to an AC. AC consisted of a quiz on top-level company information, a features/benefits task, a gatekeeper task, a presentation and an elevator pitch. Was not offered role due to insufficient questions asked in the gatekeeping task and the assessor didn't understand my sales motivation. You only have 2 minutes to pitch to them at the end which is not a long time (though I could have used it better), and my particular assessor was more interested in what was going on through the glass door behind me than what I was saying. Not something I would have applied for off my own back so its for the best I wasn't successful.
