    easy stuff really, as long as you give them a decent answer for each question to which they ask around five, you have the job.
    questions such as when did you display a characteristic of leadership
    how much do you know of home bargains
    when and how did you overcome a tight situation
    the interviewer was the area manager but he was friendly and casual but professional nonetheless

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at T J Morris (Whitstable, England (UK)) in June 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online then they sent a email the following afternoon asking for store interview. I turned up but the interview was in a staff room and staff kept going in and going out so distracted me during a question especially due to I'm autistic I found it more difficult. I didn't find until about a week later with not getting the job and finding it very difficult getting feedback.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at T J Morris (Romford, England (UK)) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Arrived early and was asked to look around the store for about 5-10 mins. Interview was relaxed, done in the stockroom as the office was too small for an interview to be held there. The store manager interviewed me and was very polite and kind, there was no pressure it was very stress free.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at T J Morris (Bingley, England (UK)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    Very poor and unprofessional interview experience. Was interviewed by the manager in his office which took around 20 minutes. Music was playing in background for first 5 minutes which he then switched off, was on my third question by then. In total I was asked around 10 questions and they were just general questions such as why Home Bargains, what do you know about us, tell me a time where you led a team etc. Also got distracted twice by a staff member knocking on the door and walking in to speak to the manager which meant I had to repeat my answers. I feel there was no respect or regards to my hearing impairment disability which I clearly had put on job application that I prefer to be interviewed in a quiet room.
