    General Assistant Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at J Sainsbury (Nottingham, England) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I applied for the position late Saturday and received a call to confirm an interview the following Monday. The interview took place during the Thursday and I received the position next Monday. So process took a week.

    Interview was very easy. He asked a surprisingly low amount of questions. Three customer service questions (below) and then personal questions about myself, flexibility, right to work etc.

    Overall the experience was very good. Don't worry if the interview seems a bit brief, I got the position anyway. :)
