    I worked at Waitrose part-time


    good community feel, good training, some good managers although can be hit and miss, flexible hours during exams


    some managers were difficult to get along with, HR were useless and payments often did not include overtime.

    Advice to Management

    keep developing your training strategy and encourage people to be involved in the partnership

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Waitrose in September 2015.


    Applied online, recieved a phone call 3 weeks later and was invited to the group interview. First of all you have the 1 on 1 interview where you are asked general questions. "Tell me about yourself", "What have you been doing over the summer", "What are your plans for the future". Then you are asked questions similar to the ones that you answered during the online test. The 1 on 1 interview is just an informal conversation where they want to find out more about you. The group interview was after the 1 on 1. We were each given a scenario and we had to decide what were the 3 main issues. Group interview lasted no longer than 10 minutes. The following week I was offered a job.

    Interview Questions

    • "How do you deal with challenging people"   Answer Question
    • "Give me an example of a time where you had to change somebody's mind"   Answer Question


    Was able to negotiate my hours. My advice would be don't let them force a lot of hours on you...
