    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at ASDA in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Initially an online application, then if you're accepted through to the next stage, you go to an "ASDA Magic" event whereby you are in a large group of potential candidates and are required to perform certain "Team Building Exercises" which vary from store to store. If you pass this, then you'll be invited for an interview with the manager of the department they're putting you forward for, this will be an informal interview to get to know you and why you believe that you are the best for the job. After this, you'll usually get a phone call in about 2-3 working days to tell you if you've got the job. If you have, then you're invited to a "Best Welcome" which is where you're shown your new department, the rest of the store and also receive your first (small) bit of training.

    Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bodmin, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at ASDA in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Asda Magic consisted of about 12 of us in a group interview with four observers. We had numbers on Post-It notes attached to our backs and had to get ourselves in to numerical order without asking anyone what our number was. We then had to work in three groups, discussing how we could make Asda more envinmentally friendly. We had a tour of the store and watched an Asda DVD. The whole thing took about 2 hours. If you were sucessful, you were phoned to come back for the 'Have a Go' which is basically a try out on the shop floor filling shelves etc, for about 3/4 hour and then you get a face-to-face interview with your soon to be Section Manager. I think unless you are a complete dodo you have got the job.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 months - interviewed at ASDA in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    A group interview where we were paired up and had to act out a product being sold to an irate customer (I played the customer). I passed that stage but was told I would be informed when a suitable position became available. At the second stage I was called in for a trial run on the warehouse shop floor and then a one on one interview with the general manager. She made me feel at ease and the interview was pretty informal. Within a few days I received a call informing me that I had got the job and had to attend a two day induction course. It was really presentations ,going through procedures and talking to our new colleagues. All in all it was a simple and fun process.

    Interview Details

    Very good interview process. Begins with a group interview where they monitor how you work with a large team. I had to introduce a fellow interviewee and describe her work skills to the team. I would advise a good attitude to people. Main interview with 2 colleagues on a separate occasion, very positive and friendly approach by management and other staff.

    Interview Questions
    • Most question are fairly typical, nothing unexpected. I was asked to describe a situation at work where I went above and beyond for a customer. Nothing you couldn't think of on the spot, interviewee's very calm and don't push you to answer quickly.   Answer Question
