    Store Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Broughton, Wales (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tesco (Broughton, Wales (UK)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was invited to a face to face interview. This turned out to be a 2 hour interview process. Firstly, there was a far to face interview with a manager, but I was interviewed with another candidate. We were both asked the same questions, even though I was a school leaver and he was a 50 year old manager of a customer services team. Next, we went on the shop floor, and were asked to talk with customers and pack their shopping. The store was very quiet, and all the candidates were looking for people to help.
    Finally, there was a team building exercise in which we had to build a 6 foot tower out of paper within 5 minutes. It had to be free standing for a minute, and ecologically sound. There were 6 in the group of all ages.

    General Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Liverpool, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tesco (Liverpool, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I applied on-line, the process was easy. I just completed the on-line application and the psychometric tests. Then got a phone call 2 weeks later asking me to come in for a group interview.

    The group interview was very laid back, there was 3 Tesco colleagues with clipboards making notes on us. There was 10 of us in total. We sat around a table did a small ice breaker that was simply saying your name and why you want to work for Tesco. We were given an application form to fill in and in that form we had to note our availability etc. One by one we were then called in for a one on one interview with a colleague (I say interview it was really more of an informal chat) during this interview I was asked basic questions such as "why Tesco?" "what makes good customer service" and just a general chat about what makes a good employee in general. I liked how laid back the one on one was.

    There was then a chance for us to " have a go " on the shop floor for about 20 minutes, for me this simply involved getting an employee bar code for the self service machines and just did some basic tasks, such as checking peoples I.D's and authorizing the self scan machines, when any problems arose with peoples shopping. Also taking the tags off peoples alcohol / clothes etc. Pretty basic stuff.

    We then went back to the training room, had a round up chat about the day and was told we would find out within the week about whether we are successful in our application.

    Reasons for Declining

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tesco (Liverpool, England (UK)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Had an online assessment that wasn't too bad, then went on to have a group interivew which included team work activities and upselling eachother. I thought that all went really well. Then after being told I was successful in that interivew you then go on to have a face to face interview with 2 people. It was a structred interview and asked lots of usual questions that you would be expecting. I then did not even get a call about the outcome, but considering it was a month or so ago I assume I was unsuccessful.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Tesco (Liverpool, England (UK)) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Interview with the manager concerning my past experiences in retail and how competent I was to do the job.

    Very informal in the sense no notes were taken. It is more like a judgement on how well you would fit into the team and if you have had similar retail experience. No piercing questions were asked, was very simple.
