    Interview

    I originally applied online for a part time checkout job online, 4 weeks later I got a call inviting me to the magic assessment.
    I had never done a group interview before and safe to say I were terrified!
    Was around 2 of us in a room, first we had to find out about the person next to us and then relay what we found out back to the group - easy enough.
    Next we were split into 4 groups and had to design a sweet bar and someone from each group had to explain the concept to the others. (I decided to do this and this probably got me bonus points!)
    The next morning I got a call to come in for a 1 to 1 interview for the same day and was told there and then the only vacancy available was on the deli counter, I still took this as it was better pay than my job now and wanted to get into the company!
    I was then called around 2 hours after and offered the job!
    I worried about nothing, the interview was absolutely fine and not terrifying at all. Be chatty and try to get noticed and you will do fine!
    Looking forward to my welcome day next week.

    Store Colleague Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bristol, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at ASDA (Bristol, England (UK)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Basic group interview with the same old situational questions and a brief personality quiz. Management running the interview were disinterested, fairly hostile and when they did get remotely involved the questions were slightly intrusive and could have been interpreted as predjudice

    Warehouse Worker Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The process took a couple of day. Group interview the first day, assessment and few hours spent in the shoop floor rumbling stuff on the shelves. Very boring occupation totally unrelated to the position I applied for.

    Interview Questions

    • Group interview with questions totally irrelevant for the position like "if you were an animal, what animal would you like to be?" (There's probably a sort of psychological connection but not in this case and, however, the interviewer didn't look aware of it).   Answer Question

    Bakery Team Member Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ASDA in July 2017.

    Interview

    did the aptitude test online.A couple of days later received a phone call inviting me to a group assessment (magic). The following week i attended the magic session with 12 other candidates, myself being the only male.We were split into groups of four and were given a task of introducing the person next to us after finding out four facts about them.This was informal and a nice icebreaker.Our next task was to pick an item out of a bag and sell it to the group.We did a sort of jingle advertising breakfast snacks.It wasn't nerve racking but quite fun.Just be yourself and show your personality.The only real downer in my situation was after all this the HR person said that the jobs that we had applied for weren't actually available only a couple of bakery roles(no pun) and a drivers job.This seems very unfair for most candidates who applied for personal shopper roles.After this bombshell we were asked to filling a form of medical history and shift/job preferences..The whole process in our case lasted about one hour.We were told that we would get informed within a couple of days if we had been successful or not.About an hour after i arrived home a produce manager called me and asked me if i would like to work in the bakery and to come in two days later for " a chat" and to see if it was something i would like to do.He said due to his shift pattern he wouldn't have chance to show me around the department but i could return the following morning for a tour and to give my decision,although at this time he hadn't actually offered me the job as such...
