    Retail Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wolverhampton, England
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Iceland Foods (Wolverhampton, England).

    Interview

    Groups went into a room and were interviewed one at a time. I passed the first stage and went straight into another interview room for a short 1:1 with the manager. I was told that they would let me know if I was successful. The whole process took about 30 mins, it was quite a relaxed interview.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Iceland Foods (London, England) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Long and drawn out. Five different processes from telephone interview to a trail shift in a store. I dealt with a recruitment advisor that worked for Iceland.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, England

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Iceland Foods (Manchester, England).

    Interview

    Initially there were online psychometric test. If successful you get an email with a telephone interview date. The telephone interview lasts approx 15 - 20 mins. I recommend visiting your local store beforehand and talking to a manager to get a deeper insight into the company because a lot of questions are based on in-store experiences.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Leeds, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Iceland Foods (Leeds, England) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted by very approachable & professional Iceland recruiter.

    Went through current accountability & Key Performance Indicators in present role, after general discussion was then invited to a telephone interview with same recruiter.

    At interview discussed present accountability and Key Performance Indicators in much more detail.
    Discussed how current performance is managed & delivered on a day to day basis & how one currently manages own team. Upon successful completion was then invited to a first stage interview.

    Performed a SWOT analysis on an Iceland Store & competitor then went through this in detail at the stage one interview.
    Then discussed current areas of accountability in detail, explained how one delivers performance & how one performs in current role. Upon successful completion one then goes to a work shadow with a current Store Manager & then a stage two interview.

    One performs another SWOT & then presents this at a Stage two interview.
    This is performed with the Area Manager & Recruiter where it gives you an opportunity to present your findings & again discuss your current accountability & how you deliver performance in detail.

    Overall I found the whole process very professional & a great experience throughout at every level.
