    Store Colleague Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Clapham, London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at ASDA (Clapham, London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Group interview/ team building excercises and then individual interview with store manager.
    We were asked to get to know the person next to us and introduce them to the room, then build a tower out of balloons. We were then put on the shop floor to organise the George clothing department whilst people went for individual interviews.
    Was told I would hear back in a few days but heard nothing, tried to call and operator put me through to an unanswered line. But the process was enjoyable and nothing to be too worried about.

Company Updates

  • We thought we’d start today with a little glimpse into our Hounslow Superstore. Sejal, Ashley and Meenu have the pizza counter packed with a range of treats to choose from and it’s great to see a big thumbs up from them! Decision time then: meatball marinara stuffed crust or a veggie supreme thin and crispy?

  • “What they did was amazing – they very likely saved my life". Well done to Mubeen, Becky and the rest of the team in the Hyde store for going the extra mile and ensuring that Emma got the help she needed as soon as possible. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQRRF

    Emma thanks Asda opticians who spotted life-threatening brain condition - ASDA Corporate

    Asda customer Emma Ward paid a special visit to our Hyde store to say a big thank you to our optician colleagues who spotted a serious brain condition that could have resulted in death or paralysis if it wasn't diagnosed and treated.
