    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SPAR (UK) (Cardiff, Wales) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I was invited for an interview which turned out not to be an interview. I arrived and was taken to the office. I was asked what hours and when I would be able to start so I said immediately. The manager took my details and set about getting my uniform and then said to me what days I could be put in for that week and then that was it. Shook his hand and that was the end of that and I had a job.

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at SPAR (UK) (Newport, Newport, Wales) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Short, quick and effective. They did however ask me to perform 4 hours unpaid work however which i thought was a little too much. They gave me 2 nights with a training partner which seemed difficult with 2 people, never mind alone.

    Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Middlesbrough, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at SPAR (UK) (Middlesbrough, England) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewer was very kind and offered great knowledge of the Spar Store, he offered help to me on my first shift and also asked about what I like to do and why I would like to work at spar, he was very friendly and offered a lot of information, the only downside was the amount of policies and paperwork needed to fill in, but other than that it was a very good experience and I would recommend anyone to apply.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SPAR (UK) (Belfast, Northern Ireland) in January 2015.

    Interview

    It was easy, I was told about the job by my friend, so I applied online. I received a letter the next day to go for an interview. I was busy so we rescheduled it until next week, they were desperate to get their hands on me so they agreed. Then I went in and said hi and they immediately stated that as soon as I filled out what hours I was available that I had the job. Simple. They couldn't resist my excellent CV.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SPAR (UK) (Cosford, England) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Had first very very brief interview at the store that i was to work at. This was just to speak to the manager where he informed me i would have to go to the Head Office in Cosford for my interview. Here i had a 20 minute conversation with the Operations Manager when he told me that i had the job (later became clear that they were understaffed and I was the only applicant so i assume that showing up to the interview was enough to guarantee me the job).
