    Trainee Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Pick 'n Pay in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    A good reference and some basic retail qualifications will go a long way. Show that you are passionate about detail and people and just be yourself - do not be shy to brag a bit on your abilities. They want to see if you have leadership and can take pressure and all the tests are also directed to be pushing you against time. Make sure you study the given materials and come prepared when you need to write a test - they provide a basic numaracy test working on percentages mostly, so warm up on maths (not rocket science though). Have a look at their website and beliefs and always keep them in mind during the interview process.
