    Customer Service Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Shepshed, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Co-operative Group (Shepshed, England (UK)) in September 2015.


    i applied online and was emailed about a week later telling me to come in for an interview. I was later contacted via mobile to confirm the interview time. When j got there I asked where the interviews were being held and waited until the manager was available. I filled out a booklet testing my literacy and numeracy skills. This was followed by an interview of standard questions that last around 20 minutes. He also checked my passport and asked about my current education. A week later I received a phone call saying I got the job and should come down to sort out uniform size.
