I applied on Indeed and got a interview for the week after which was good. They are extremely nice... my email hadn't come through properly and I didn't realise I needed more than just my passport and Drivers Licence. He let me go away and come back an hour later to quickly get it! The questions are exactly what everyone else has put. They ask you 7 long questions/scenarios from past experiences and write down your reply on to individual bits of paper. At the end they ask you about van checks, what hours you would be happy working etc. Then get you to read a number plate out.

Good luck to anyone that has applied! :) I hope I have helped like you lot helped me prepare.
