    Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Carlisle, England
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wilko (Carlisle, England) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through a university student fair, heard back within a week an was invited to a group interview. The interview involved an icebreaker - introducing yourself with 2 truths and 1 lie, the group had to decide which fact was the lie.Then we were given different activities in the group e.g.a puzzle, quiz sheet with riddles. This was to see how you interacted with other people in a team setting. The interview stage took roughly an hour and the mangers were friendly/welcoming.
    Got a phone call saying i got the job about a week later.

    Negotiation

    no negotiation had a normal rate of pay.

    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    I applied and around two weeks later I received a telephone interview. As per I was asked about my career history and reasons for leaving my current employer. All very standard.

    I was then asked for my availability regarding the phase which were face to face interviews for which I would be contacted regarding a date and location. This never happened. A little disappointed in the experience.

    Senior Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Worksop, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Wilko (Worksop, England) in January 2018.

    Interview

    One on one interview with the line manager with another manager of the same level making notes. I was told that I would be contacted on the following Monday (my interview was on a Tuesday) and I didn't hear anything. I chased them and still to this day haven't had an answer. I think that it was rude and inconsiderate to not follow-up on a promise.
