    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ASDA.

    Interview

    Applied online on Asda's site and was invited to an assessment center about a week and a half later or so. The assessment center is nothing to get nervous about there will be about 20 (well in my case there was) and you split up into groups of 4-5 and play a sort of bingo game. You are all given the bingo sheets with 14 activities on them (have you been on holiday outside the UK etc.) and you have to go round the room and ask everybody who's done what and mark them off, there will be 2 or 3 Asda employees at the back watching everybody to see how you communicate and interact with others. After that we were told to build a capsule for an egg to be dropped from about 2 meters so that the egg didn't break. One of you then has to stand up and demonstrate the product (bonus points for being the one to stand up I would say). The whole process took around an hour maybe less. You are then told to wait up to 3 weeks to hear back (I heard back within the same week). You are then invited to a pretty casual interview, 5 quick easy questions and then gave some information about the work. I was then told I would have to wait up to 2 weeks to hear back but I am guessing I will find out sooner either way
