    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Tesco (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very straight forward. There were a lot of behavioral questions that asked about ways you responded to certain situations in the past.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tesco in March 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online and the process took 2 weeks.
    First is phone interview, typical behavioral based questions and what do you think about this position.
    Then is the AC, prior to the interview you got a case to study and asked to do a presentation at the interview day. I miss the group interview, but HR was very nice and assign me to one department manager to present my case study. After that, I was interviewed by four different department manager to talk about the details. Several technique questions. Most were about scenario question and your background details.

    Shopfloor Replenishment Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Croydon, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tesco (Croydon, England (UK)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Called to come in then they rescheduled it. Individual interview with 10-15 other applicants given the same time slot. I wasn't seen for over an hour and a half in the boiling hot with no water offered. One applicant walked out and I almost did the same, no respect for our time and the job was advertised with a different location too, strongly implying that it's customer-focused when it's actually in a warehouse.

    Largely a competency based interview, with the opportunity to discuss the role and my skills more generically to outline how my experience to date was relevant.

    'Uncomplicated' interview process, resulting in a fairly quick appointment.
