    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Scotmid in October 2019.

    Interview

    The interview was an informal chat with the manager, although I used competency-based answers casually as I could manage.

    I was told I did fantastically in the application and at interview, but unfortunately, my second job clashed with the shift patterns they wanted.

    The the interview for this role was very calm and relaxed. I got told from the beginning that it would be like an informal interview with a few intense moments.

    Cashier Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Scotmid (Edinburgh, Scotland) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was hardly an interview. I was basically asked when I would be able to work and if I had any holidays planned for the upcoming summer. If there was an interview I can imagine it all being very basic questions since being a cashier doesn't require many talents.
