I interviewed at Big W

Interview

Very few questions, mainly wanted to know about previous experience, any skills, and check whether I was willing to learn new skills. Checked that I was physically fit to lift heavy items in the stock room, though I'm young so it wasn't a major concern anyway.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Big W (Perth, Western Australia) in Jun 2022

Interview

Firstly I applied to a job online from Job Seek. Within a week I was invited to the next step in the process. This was a written response to two questions. I then was informed of an online interview which I was given 24 hours to complete. I answered on line a number of questions and then recorded online answers to questions. It was a very quick response time and I was offered the position within a week.

Interview Questions
  • Why do you want to work here? When have you been able to overcome a difficult situation - what was it and how did you overcome it. What is your work availability? Have you ever experienced conflict within a team at work? How did you deal with it?
