    Easy 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...

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    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.

    People Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Leeds, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tesco (Leeds, England (UK)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Online submission and interview with 2 regional people managers. It was very intimidating. I wish I could remember more questions because they were all curve balls. Mostly behavioural and my research proved useless. Was an uncomfortable process, but maybe I wasn't right for the role.
