Personal Shopper Interview

Anonymous Employee
Enfield, England (UK)

I applied in-person and 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 Question – No difficult question, they were fairly general.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation phase. Salary and benefits were set as standard.

Sales Assistant Interview

Anonymous Employee
London, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at ASDA.

Interview Details – There were 4 interview processes. The managers were very friendly and made everyone felt at ease. There was a 1:1 interview at first, then 2 other group interviews and then assessments were taken from all of us. Questions such as why are you applying for this job?, what will you do to help improve this store?, etc. Some intelligence questions were asked and we were told to sell products too. It was a good process in general.

Interview Question – Was asked to compare between detergents and choose the best to sell to the customer. It was unexpected.   View Answer

Department Manager Interview

Department Manager
London, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at ASDA in August 2011.

Interview Details – You turn up for a 'reality day'. There are 6 people assessing you throughout a 4 hour process. This consists of a presentation, 1:1 interview, competence test in a live situation amongst other things. If you are succesful, they will contact you within a week. You then have a 2:1 interview with a Store Manager and a People Services Manager. If you are successful, they will contact you within a week with the outcome/offer.

Interview Question – Describe your best friend..   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate 2k on top of my salary, also a fast track promotion depending on my performance. Ensure you ask them for time to think, ring back about an hour later with what you would like and see what they say.
