    Pros

    good work environment where you can improve yourselves with everyday challenge and fast paced give you all the operational and people management experience that will stand you in great stead for the future, arming you with the knowledge and confidence to move up the ladder when you’re well and truly ready to do so.

    Cons

    You’ll work closely with, and support the Store Manager, standing in their shoes for periods of holidays, absence for meetings and training. So, you’ll need to be committed and motivated to maintain the high standards that are already in place. But you won’t be thrown in at the deep end. You’ll get plenty of on-the-job technical and operational training to give you a greater understanding of the bigger picture. And, in turn develop the skills to become a competent Trainee Manager for the future.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Iceland Foods.

    Interview

    I handed in my cv in store and got an phone call after a few hours. The interview was arranged 2 days later. The interview in itself was very generic.
