    Positive Experience
    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. There is a lot of pressure in this industry so they want to know how you would react when something goes wrong and you have to respond quickly...

    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.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Online submission and interview with 2 regional people managers. It was very intimidating. I wish I could remember more questions because they were all curve balls. Mostly behavioural and my research proved useless. Was an uncomfortable process, but maybe I wasn't right for the role.

    Part Time Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Birmingham, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tesco (Birmingham, England (UK)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Group interview with 2 people assessing. The main assessor was very cold and rude with me. I didn't understand what was meant by some of the questions and she seemed to take offence when I asked her to expand or elaborate when I misunderstood.
    It was a group interview with a handful of others. They ask each person a question in the group and you answer it, they change the questions to catch you off guard.
    We then had a group building activity where we made a 6ft tower from paper, cellotape and pencils. We were asked afterwards how we would improve on it and if anyone took the lead role etc.
