    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at ASDA (North Watford, England).

    Interview

    Arrived for the Asda magic, as you hear often from the others, the session was very relaxed and welcoming. they ask you to introduce a person next to you, and you are given enough time to ask in a relax time and wright the answers an a sheet of paper.
    Because it was so relaxed, everyone started to chat to each other.
    The one to one was after the magic session and was very relaxed and friendly.
    In the Asda session as asked to look at a product and try to sell it to others. the session was so relaxed that everyone did well, one of the assessors the main person said I was the best, I didn't expect that because I am usually not good at standing up to do things like this, I think the session brought the best of me and the others.
    The only thing I say it is all very relaxing. and the assessors very down to earth and lovely.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at ASDA (Newport, Newport, Wales) in June 2018.

    Interview

    The whole process took about one week, I applied online and received an invitation to the Asda Magic interviews, it took roughly 4 hours to complete everything.

    I was the only boy out of around 10 people (everyone got the jobs though, must've been understaffed).

    Began with icebreaker activities by talking to the person to your left, asking their name, where they've travelled to and somewhere you have both been. Then two group activities, first sent on to the shop floor to spot summer promotions and how they're displayed and secondly given a product and asked what it is, how it's used, pros and cons etc.

    After this, we were given roles related to what they thought we would be good at and what our preferences was (My first choice was home/leisure) and sent with colleagues to have a go, me and two others who wanted home & leisure were helping a lad with deliveries and seeing how to put stock out (basic retail stuff).

    During this have a go process, people were being plucked for their 1on1s which were extremely calm and friendly, all the management staff involved were lovely to talk to and the interview was the same, very basic questions.

    We were all invited back in at the end of the day to be told we were all successful, can't wait to start tomorrow.

    (Seasonal, i'm a university student).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ASDA in June 2018.

    Interview

    The application was processed online. I received an email eleven days later confirming my invitation to the 'Asda Magic' event. You are sent a link to book your 'Asda Magic' appointment online. There was a choice of two dates available. The event took place at the Asda store that I had applied for.

    You are asked to sign in at the customer service desk. A store colleague took us to the staff room. There were six people in total attending the same interview. An Asda employee came in and collected us and took us all to one of the offices. We were sat down in allocated seats.

    There were four people from various roles within the store who took notes whilst the 'Asda Magic' even took place. The first task was to talk to the person next to you and find out about them and then to relay the information and introduce that person to the rest of the group.

    The second task was to 'purchase' items with an imaginary £5 note and build a safety structure for an egg. The egg would be thrown from an unknown height The team who had spent the least and managed to keep the egg intact would 'win' the game. For this task, the group was split into two groups of three.

    The final task was to make a list of seasonal items ready for a summer party or gathering. We were lead to the shop floor and asked to locate those items as a group. We had to then talk individually about our findings - regarding promotional items, low stock items, price tags, offers, deals etc.

    At the end, we were finally given an 'hours' sheet to fill in. This outlined the hours we would like to work, the sections in the store that we could work in and preferred to work in (clothing, till work, produce etc.)

    If successful, we would then be called in for an individual interview at a later date.

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at ASDA.

    Interview

    It was very good and it was an easy process. I had to do a group task then go on shop floor then we had individual interviews. I didn't get it because I wasn't expanding on answers; I was nervous. Just be relaxed because it's easy.
