I interviewed at Waitrose

Interview

Online google meet after doing an online test. Lasted about 20 minutes and was asked normal questions with a few warm up/get to know me questions which weren’t marked. The person was friendly and made me feel comfortable.

I applied online. I interviewed at Waitrose

Interview

Online video interview. The manager seemed very disconnected and uninterested. When discussing my CV, he focused on my GCSEs and instruments I played in primary school, and didn't mention my engineering degree, work experience or personal interests. He also appeared to make fun of my further maths A-level. Note: I left during the training period.

Interview

So how does the interview process with Waitrose go .. well in my experience it went like this 1) They post a job - you try to apply for that job but the portal simply inisists there is a missing field, even though all fields are populated.. So at this point there is no way to submit an application 2) The job is de-listed and disappears 3) Some 2 days later the same job re-appears, this time without errors and submitting an application is possible - (hurruh, achievement) 4) The portal asks you to complete an assessment - you click on the email from them and the portal asks if you want to apply mentioning little of an assessment.. After some scouting around in the portal the assessment is found (like a special easter egg hunt / puzzle) 5) Receive an email to select an interview slot .. Click on this and asked if i want to start the assessment, i dont really having already done this.. and again after some ferreting about and declining of taking the assessment a second time i find the interview slot picker .. (hurruh once more) 5) Select interview slot from those provided 6) Day before interview receive a call .. interview slot double booked (skills, given a computer system booked it) 7) Receive interview invite .. click on accept in this email, land on 404 error page. 8) Receive assessment links to a google drive document (day before interview) that are to be carried out before the interview ... click on links and receive a you dont have permissions email.. Request permission ... Wait .. try again ... nope.. wait some more ... try again .. still no.. (Going well) 9) Send email advising of error messages and permission issues.. 10) Receive reply, saying will resend later .. Later receive nothing 11) Next day (Day of interview) Receive new invite and links .. Neither work 12) Have interview - nice person, decent questions - all good .. Told at end of interview you will hear back at the end of the day on selection outcomes (this is volunteered, not asked about) 13) Hear absolutely nothing .. days passs .. still the silence .. Presumably Process Ends .. maybe not.. who is really to say I've never written a review before but this selection of humorous ineptitude seemed worthy of being recorded ..

I interviewed at Waitrose

Interview

The interview consisted of a group case study exercise and then an individual interview. The case study involved store-based scenarios which you would encounter as an Assistant. The individual interview was quite laid back and not too long, and I was asked questions about Waitrose's ethos and providing good customer service.
