    Checkout Assistant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Tesco in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online doing the usual online questionnaire that comes with applying to work at a supermarket. I passed that by selecting the obvious options and swaying towards the customer service answers.

    I then got a call from a Checkout Manager and arranged a 'small interview'. That is exactly what it was, a checkout manager and I went into a small office where she asked me a couple of questions in an informal setting. (The questions that were asked were all in a book and were obviously asked to every single person entering Tesco country-wide).

    It was a while ago now but roughly:
    Give me an example of when you provided excellent customer service...

    Interview Questions
    • If you haven't been in a retail role then this may be hard to answer but just try and make something up before you go in there so it looks believable.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Didn't negotiate pay, was way better than what I was getting. Talked about hours and they were very flexible.
