    I have been working at Waitrose full-time (more than 3 years)


    Good development opportunities
    Being a partner in a company is great
    People who are generally genuinely happy to be at work


    Due to it being a partnership some decisions take long periods of time to go though as it has to go through most people. This is great but also time consuming.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Waitrose.

    Interview Details

    Went through the tests - situational judgment, verbal reasoning and numerical (designed specifically for them, not generic SHL or Kenexa which was nice).
    Shortly after invited to complete a video interview within 4 days. It lasted around 20-25 minutes, and they gave you around 1 minute to prepare and 2 minutes to answer.

    Mainly competency based questions and a couple regarding Waitrose/JLP and its values etc.
