    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ASDA.

    Interview

    It was quick and short but quite disorganised. They had too many roles that they were interviewing for, and they didn't know which candidates were the correct ones for which, as there was some problem with HR or something. Also they were running behind schedule as there were other interviewees hanging around when I arrived and left. But nice people.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ASDA (London, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Filled in an online application, had a situational judgement test. Attended Asda magic event (old Kent road London) - which was the biggest joke I've ever experienced, really stupid situation where they assess personality, the loud obnoxious ones always try to outshine everyone and it's difficult to get your bit in edgewise. Personality doesn't determine the kind of worker you are. I will not be applying there again. Don't even bother unless you're an obnoxious loud person.

    Interview

    I applied online , got a phone call 3 days later ,invited for a Asda Magic Event.
    It's a group interview, we were 10 and played bingo ( asking one question each ) , teamplay how to pack a egg that it wouldn't break if if falls down from about 2-3 m high,with a budget where we could 'buy' different packing materials, then we had a go on the shop floor in a group of 4 , we could choose a part of the shop and there we had to look ,how is the presentation, is everything available, if not how can you get the item you want to buy, is the shop floor clean , what is good , what would you change , back in the room we spoke about our experience .
    Last thing we had to do was to write down ,our availability to work .
    Today I have my 1:1 Interview, so fingers crossed.
    All in all it wasn't tricky , just be yourself and work as a team member, be friendly and smile .

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ASDA (Bolton, England (UK)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Online application with multiple choice questions then invited to group interview. We were put into pairs with questions to ask each other then had to tell the group about the person we had been paired with, we were then split into two groups and given a packet of spaghetti and a packet of marshmallows which we had to make a tower with, this was to see how we interacted with each other. On the whole fairly relaxed and fun, just grin and bear it and participate to get the most from it. a couple of days later had a call for a one to one interview. At one to one interview found there were no home delivery vacancies left only checkout with mimimal hours.
