    Average Interview

    Interview

    Went through the online tests and got offered to come in for an interview. In the interview there were about 5 of us and we all had to complete a task in 30 minutes then make a presentation. The task was simple and it was all based on reading customers feedback and making solutions for the problems brought up by customers. There where two people in watching us and making notes. After this we all waited in the cafeteria and we're called in twos for our one-to-one interviews which were an additional 30 mins. Overall the whole thing took just under 2 hours.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Waitrose & Partners (Luton, East of England, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Started with a group assessment of 6 people half of whom already knew each other so it was extremely hard to get a word in when the friends were bouncing off each other the entire 20 minutes.
    Were asked to prioritise a set of tasks, you’re marked on how much you communicate and give to the conversation. Fairly straightforward however it’s inevitable that in a group of 6 people that not everyone is going to be able to speak up in such a short time frame.
    After the group interview you have a 1-1 interview where standard interview questions are asked. Nothing is particularly difficult however the whole interview process seems extremely excessive for what is essentially a shelf-stacking job - the whole thing took over 2 hours.

    A formal process. Group assessment at the beginning, followed by a formal individual interview. In the waitrose offices in central london, very clean and pleasant office with a good friendly atmosphere. Not intimidating at all.

    Interview Questions

    • All interview questions were pretty simple. The usual "why do you want to work for us?", "what are your weaknesses?"   Answer Question
