    Shop Floor Assistant - Chilled Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Edinburgh, Scotland
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at ASDA (Edinburgh, Scotland) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The first interview had us show up and present a government verified ID and our national insurance numbers. Both had to be verified and in date. Those who didn't have it in paper form had to leave! Bring your papers!

    Then there was us in the "Asda magic" interview where we wrote a few things about our selves and someone next to us had to read it and introduce us. After that, we "sold" an Asda own brand item to someone. It took about twenty minutes as we had a small group. Then we filled in our time available on a sheet and went home. A few days later I got word to come back for a 1-1 interview. Here I was asked more formal questions.

    Interview

    I originally applied online for a part time checkout job online, 4 weeks later I got a call inviting me to the magic assessment.
    I had never done a group interview before and safe to say I were terrified!
    Was around 2 of us in a room, first we had to find out about the person next to us and then relay what we found out back to the group - easy enough.
    Next we were split into 4 groups and had to design a sweet bar and someone from each group had to explain the concept to the others. (I decided to do this and this probably got me bonus points!)
    The next morning I got a call to come in for a 1 to 1 interview for the same day and was told there and then the only vacancy available was on the deli counter, I still took this as it was better pay than my job now and wanted to get into the company!
    I was then called around 2 hours after and offered the job!
    I worried about nothing, the interview was absolutely fine and not terrifying at all. Be chatty and try to get noticed and you will do fine!
    Looking forward to my welcome day next week.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ASDA (Hull, England) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and had to complete two tests based around customer interaction in addition to the usual declaration regarding right to work and unspent convictions etc. I was then invited to participate in an ASDA Magic session at the store. At other stores this involves teambuilding exercises, however at this mid-size store it only entailed an interview and having a go at the role. We were informed of the outcome by telephone less than an hour after the end of the process.
