    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Woolworths Supermarkets in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    For me the process was really quick. I applied near the Christmas season so I guess they need people urgently.

    I applied online and within a week someone called me and did a quick phone interview, the typical 'tell me about yourself' questions. And then at the end of the call they asked if I can attend a group interview dated about 2 days from then.

    At the group interview, there were 15 people but no school kids. They did a brief presentation about the company, their vision and mission. And then they ask you if you've got any questions to ask. At this point, say something or ask a question at least. I find that the people who said something during the interview got the job in the end. Even it's just a simple one. After that they give us a sheet containing a number of tasks and we were asked to prioritize them. It's an easy one, using straight forward logic.

    Then they asked us to do the same thing but in a small group of 3-4 people. Basically you just have to discuss, give your opinions and later tell the manager your group's answers.

    After that there was a brief tour of the store and they let you go. The morning after I got a call to provide the right to work docs and after I did, they emailed me saying I got the job. Some people had a second interview with the store manager but I didn't.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Woolworths Supermarkets.

    Interview Details

    Applied online via website, was called 4 days later. They called me to come in to interview the next afternoon. I was promised 12-15 hour per week part time contract. Had an interview with the line manager and the 2IC instore. They had a very long list of questions as prescribed by head office including behavoural interview (what would you do if...Name a time when...) as well as the usual questions (why did you leave your last job). Interview went on for a fair amount of time. Considering they hire a lot of teens in their first job I wondered how they would fare given how many questions needed an answer involving a specific. When I went for a training shift I was told I would only be offered a 10 hour contract despite being promised 12-15hours.

    Interview Questions
