    Checkout Operator Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ASDA (Dunfermline, Scotland (UK)).

    Interview

    I initially attended the asda magic assessment which consisted of three different parts. The first part was getting your name badge and picking your favourite flower, in which the group (there were 11 of us) had to organise themselves alphabetically according to the flower. You then got paired with the person next to you and we got three questions; whats your favourite thing about spring, why asda and why you chose that flower. You were being watched by the employees so it's important that you make conversation with your partner! The second part was being put into groups and we had to make a container to stop an egg from cracking while sticking to a budget for the objects we used. Our team lost but the most important thing is showing that you can adapt to working in a group - so make sure you contribute! Lastly we got paired up and had to walk around the store and then went back into the room and say what was good about their seasonal display.
    This part was so chilled out, just make sure you show that you're friendly!

    I got a call 2 days later to say I passed the first part and had my interview exactly one week after the magic assessment.

    The interview was fairly simple. The actual interview section lasted about 15-20 minutes and they ask questions suited to your experience, so don't worry too much! Just make sure you're prepared and enthusiastic. After the questions I was shown around the shop floor and then helped pack bags on the checkouts for about 10 minutes. It was once again really relaxed, I think they mostly are looking for someone who is good with customers and approachable!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at ASDA.

    Interview

    Applied online. Had to do a long but easy questionnaire. After 2 weeks got an email that my application was unsuccessful. Then got a call 2 days later asking if I was still interested to come for a group interview "Asda magic" which was 3 days after the day I got the call. I agreed to attend.

    At the group interview there were 8 people other than me and two people were absent(2 empty seats with name badges). There were 3 rounds. First one was to introduce ourselves to the person sitting next to you and introduce them to the group. They gave us 3 questions to discuss i)what's your name? ii)why do you want to work for Asda iii)what matters the most to you in the world and why?

    In second round, we were divided into two groups and we had to was make a tower of balloons, and they judge you on how you work in a team etc

    In Third round, we were given a tour of the stock room and left us on the floor to act as shop assistant for 15 minutes.

    Then we given forms to fill about our availability and preferred departments and uniform sizes. And said we would hear from them next week if we were successful in this interview. Got an email and call 2 days later saying I wasn't successful. Got a feedback too.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at ASDA.

    Interview

    I applied online, got call next day asking me to attend a group interview. I went for a checkout vacancy. The group interview was with 4 others. We had to break in to 2 groups tell each other about ourselves for about four minutes, name, age, family etc and the person next to you had to then relay this back to the Asda employee. To see what we could remember. We were asked why we wanted to work for Asda. (my answer was it's a good company, good prospect of promotion, believe in the brand of Asda/Walmart, I want to be part of a team with a can do attitude etc) Then we had to build a balloon tower from Sellotape and balloons with in 7 minutes. We had to nominate a Capitan and name the tower. I was nominated as captain and I came up with the name "Rainbow tower" lots of different coloured balloons. I found it important to push yourself forward and be outgoing even though I'm normally quite shy I had read on here before they like outgoing people which is very true. We then filled out our availability. And gave right to work documents. Then we were called for private interviews. I was first from the group. In the private interview I was asked general interview questions about myself, work history.. Just be yourself and honest. The manager told me she would ring me asap. I then left. I got a call with 3 hours from leaving offering me a position. I am thrilled and looking forward to working for a wonderful company. If you are reading this than I wish you good luck with your interview

    Asda Graduate Scheme Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stockton-on-Tees, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ASDA (Stockton-on-Tees, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The process of the application is quite long. You apply online then a few good weeks later you find out whether you've been successful for a video interview. If you have then you have 5-7 days to complete this. The video interview is a recorder one so there is not anyone on the receiving end. There are 6 questions to answer which you have 1 minute to read and 1 minute to answer. The best way to prepare for this, or how I prepared was by searching as many interview questions as I could and writing my own answers to them which I then thoroughly revised. You should use the STAR technique. The face to face interview is part of an assessment centre.

    Shop Floor Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sittingbourne, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ASDA (Sittingbourne, England (UK)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Magic Event. Interview Assessment day: We all assembled in the training room & after handing in our 'right to work' documents & writing our names on a card we were assigned to find out information about the person next to us to then inform the rest of the group, rather than just introduce ourselves. Questions included personal information, why they wanted to work for Asda, hobbies & interests & if they were sent to a desert island, who they would take with them.
    We were then split into groups and given an item to prepare a jingle for. Extra points for singing. : ) We all then had to complete a form to inform them what departments we were and were not interested in working in. What times and days,we were available to work and what was our prefered department. Also, incase we were chosen we filled in a uniform size form.
    Then, in our groups, we were given 3 items to go and look for on the shop floor. We just had to write down the aisle we found it in and it's price.
    The session lasted 1 and a half hours. It didn't include a short interview or a 'have a go session' as they had had a big response & there were 5 sessions taking place on this day.
    If successful, we would be called back for an interview & a 'have a go' session in a few days. Or receive an e-mail to say we were successful, but would be put on a waiting list for 6 months until something suitable arises, or to say we hadn't been successful.

    Ambient Colleague Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at ASDA in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, did the questionnaire and got an email asking to come to a "Magic Assessment" a few days later.

    There were three exercises...
    1. Find out more about the person sitting next to you, then tell the group.
    2. Build a tower out of dried spaghetti and marshmallows in groups of three.
    3. Build a castle out of balloons in a different group of three.

    It was quite relaxed, and I found it easy to talk to everyone, it wasn't really like a standard interview. However, I heard the next day that I was unsuccessful. Not sure why, but maybe they were looking for a certain type of people, and I wasn't it.
