    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at J Sainsbury.

    Interview

    It was super quick. I didn't bother filling in the long application form online, instead I called my local store and asked them if they were hiring. They asked me to go in the following day at 8am. The interview was fairly quickly. The manager was getting to know my personality more than my actual skills/experience.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at J Sainsbury.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to me on a job platform and asked to arrange a call.

    When it came time for the call, the recruiter messaged me on whatsapp to say they couldn't get through to me (my phone was working fine, and if it wasn't they could also whatsapp call me or quickly set up a google meet or zoom call?) and asked me to type out my experience. I reluctantly did so and then was ghosted.

    Very unprofessional
