    Customer Service Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    So far I've only completed the online survey but the questions were so straightforward it was almost unbelievable. They were essentially as glaringly obvious as "if a customer is rude to you are you allowed to punch them in the face?" which is a clear no. They're multiple choice and it doesn't take too long, and you answer a few questions about yourself and your possible working hours and they'll let you know (or not) within 21 days whether they're interested in you enough for an interview. It helps if you know someone who works there for when you apply. Hopefully I'll find out soon if i might be in with a chance!

    Hgv Driver Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Littlehampton, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Littlehampton, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Wickes in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was told that they were trying to employ some people through the official TP Group methods, as opposed to just hiring someone who knows someone. The online application screens anyone out who is does not pass the online quiz, and spend considerable time uploading their CV. Once submitted this filters down to the store management. If successful for the interview stage, you will be given a formal slot with management who reads from a corporate script. If you check all the boxes, happy days!

    Interview Questions
    • What task did you most dislike about your last job role.
      Very corporate sounding question, may startle the unsuspecting candidate.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bridgend, Wales (UK)
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Wickes in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had posted my CV to the company, and in return was called to set up an interview. There was just one interview, which felt more like an informal chat with one of the bosses. Questions: What do you think heath and safety is? When was the last time you worked as part of a group? How would you deal with an irate customer? are you flexible in relation to working hours? I was also asked to complete a small practical maths test. I was then later phoned with the job offer.
