    Below average, good to get online experience, but not focussed on people and not great for career opportunities

    CSTM Delivery Driver Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dagenham, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Ocado (Dagenham, England (UK)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and within 5 days I was contacted. Had a short phone interview then I was invited to a face to face interview. Went to the interview where I was invited to a driving assessment. Had the driving assessment today and to be honest as easy as it is to drive, like all things you haven't driven before it takes time to adjust yourself to driving a auto van. Still thinking I was in a manual I put my foot on the break to change gear in the first few minutes of my drive. Didn't cause no damage or danger to anyone, I tried to redeem myself and carry on with no nerves but just being apologetic to the assessor for jolting her forward. She was forgiving in the fact I am used to a manual. Didn't do that again lol. The rest of the drive was okay, fairly smooth, just my planning was pretty nervy. I think I may have failed, but I don't know if the ADI will take into consideration it was my first time in the van. Hope so, because with extra training my driving and planning will be much better. I completed a 20 question theory and feel fairly confident I got at least 70% right. So it's now a waiting game to see if I am successful.
