Application

I applied online – interviewed at J Sainsbury (Birmingham, England (UK)) in March 2015.

Interview

I applied for the job online and then had a telephone interview. The telephone interview went great as I had done all my research beforehand (most of it on glassdoor.co.uk). I was then invited for a interview in the store. I did more research and prep for this on glassdoor.co.uk. I seemed like they have a set of interview question that do not change much, so I gathered as many of these questions from the reviews and practiced answering them. But on the day of the interview, I went to the store, they made me wait 10-15 mins in the staff room. I was then taken to a small, messy office by the team leader. I would say the interview was unprofessional. He asked me questions about my work history and was jotting down notes as I answered his questions, he then asked me a couple of general questions like, 'describe a time that you had to prioritise your workload' and that's all. The interview was over in around 15 minutes. I feel I was not able to show my full potential as the interview just focused on my work history, previous roles/duties and felt I was just repeating myself, I wasn't able to show what I could possibly bring to this job role etc

    Interview

    initial communication was good phoned them to sort an interview up, then when successful phoned to sort the induction out, induction taught you the basics, and then after 3 days stopped and went onto your department where after 1 hour of training just left you to it
