    I filled in the online interview and quickly received an invite to a 'magic interview'-a group interview for 9 of us, led by a manager and observed by about 3 supervisors. It was much as described elsewhere, introduce your neighbour and then after a video presentation, do a group activity (spaghetti and marshmallow tower). We then had a tour and had to fill in an availability sheet.
    I got a call the next day inviting me to an individual interview the next week. This consisted of two managers who asked a lot of questions about my experience of customer service and Asda in general and then a short time in the store, being asked to find items etc.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at ASDA (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Although you apply for a specific role, the interview process is generic and everyone is interviewed together. I was invited to the 'Asda Magic' assessment evening and was with a group of between 10-15 people. Initially everyone is asked to introduce themselves and tell everyone an interesting fact about themselves as a type of 'ice-breaker'.
    Next you will be split into groups and asked to complete a group task, ours was to compile a list of 10 things you would bring on a spaceship at the end of the world etc etc. It's basically a task to see how you communicate with others and if you are able to listen effectively and work as a team. It's really nothing too heavy!
    Next you will be interviewed by a manager one-to-one before the evening is concluded. This again isn't too heavy, the questions are generally about customer service.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ASDA (Omagh, Northern Ireland (UK)).

    Interview

    This interview was my first ever interview. I was scared going into it although the person taking it was so friendly which helped calm my nerves. This really helped me settle before the informal interview. The interview was more about getting to know me and my opinions more so than formal questions. I found the person taking the interview easy to talk to which really helped.
