    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Tesco (New York, NY (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very straight forward. There were a lot of behavioral questions that asked about ways you responded to certain situations in the past. There is a lot of pressure in this industry so they want to know how you would react when something goes wrong and you have to respond quickly...

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tesco in March 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online and the process took 2 weeks.
    First is phone interview, typical behavioral based questions and what do you think about this position.
    Then is the AC, prior to the interview you got a case to study and asked to do a presentation at the interview day. I miss the group interview, but HR was very nice and assign me to one department manager to present my case study. After that, I was interviewed by four different department manager to talk about the details. Several technique questions. Most were about scenario question and your background details.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Very easy, laid back interview but it all depends on the selected store and manager. The length of the process was about 15 minutes long and told me I had the job straight away but yet again it depends on your manager.

    Interview

    The application was so ridiculous I couldn't complete it, I emailed them to query it and they replied with a totally random email that had nothing to do with the email I sent. So even though I passed the tests and filled in the questionnaire I couldn't submit the application.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Tesco in December 2017.

    Interview

    Tesco visited my campus. 1st round was online coding on HackerRank, with 2 questions of medium difficulty. Next 2 rounds was Technical and HR interviews.
    Interviewer mostly asked question based on strengths mentioned CV and projects (in my case - OOP, DS, Algo). Some questions were asked from topics like Networks, even though it wasn't mentioned.
    Even though the interviewer seemed satisfied by most of my answers, I wasn't called for next round.
