    I worked at Waitrose part-time

    Pros

    The employees are cared about, the John Lewis Partnership is great for that. The discounts are great and there are a load of additional perks to cash in on if you work here. Pay moved up quickly and started at a high rate.

    Cons

    Experience can vary store-to-store.

    Customer Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, ON
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Waitrose (London, ON).

    Interview

    Online application consists of 2 multiple choice questionnaires. (Situational).
    Once passed, was scheduled for a group interview.
    Group interview was split into two sections: Group task and individual interview.
    Group task: Introduce yourself to the group (3-6 people & two interviewers), we then had to match some products to some customers based on what they were after (as a group). Each person was then given an item that is sold in the store and was then asked to "sell the item" (just look at the stand out features and say how it would benefit the person) etc.
    Individual interview was just a few short questions. Why Waitrose? why you? etc etc.

    Was called two days later and given the offer.
