    I have been working at A.S. Watson Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice and friendly peers workers. Large local organisation with sufficient resources. Stable working environment.

    Cons

    Management is hierarchical and top down. The size and structure of the group may have made it less flexible, things are processed with a limited speed. Pay rise is slow and benefits are not attractive.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at A.S. Watson Group (London, England (UK)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I had to do three tests prior to the interview and had two subsequent interviews one of which involved a presentation and another one was competency based.
    Test were numerical, verbal and psychometric. All SHL tests.
    After competency interviews they presented me with test results. I did well in numerical and verbal tests but psychometric test results were apparently clashing with my competency based answers. Psychometric test comes up straight after other two tests so by that time I was tired and randomly clicking on 60+ questions. So during the interview I had to justify myself which was awkward. Advice would be to make yourself a quick coffee after numerical and verbal tests.
