    Difficulté moyenne

    Entretien

    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.

    Entretien de Supermarket Assistant

    Employé anonyme - Londres, Angleterre (Royaume-Uni)
    Offre acceptée
    Expérience positive
    Entretien facile

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. J'ai passé une entrevue à Waitrose (Londres, Angleterre (Royaume-Uni)) en septembre 2017.

    Entretien

    I applied online and after completing the online tests, I was invited to attend an interview.
    First taken to a room and had to complete a form about details and availability etc. There were 12 people there and we got split into two groups and were taken into separate rooms to complete the group assessment. There were 3 managers in the room assessing us. The task itself was fairly easy; we were given 5 different customers all with different specifications/needs and we had to match the appropriate food item to each one. All about communicating with the group and talking about the decisions made.
    After that, we then went back into the main room with the other group and were called one by one for our individual interview. Again this was fairly easy, the woman interviewing me was really nice and friendly which helped calm my nerves. I was asked standard questions like "Describe a time/Give an example of ..." just make sure you have a lot of examples ready in your head.
    At the start of the process the recruiter said she would contact us within 20 to 25 days to say whether we got the job or not, but I received a call the next morning informing me that I had got the job! Overall I had a very positive experience.

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 4 semaines. J'ai passé une entrevue à Waitrose (Bath, Angleterre (Royaume-Uni)).

    Entretien

    It took a few hours to do the initial application for the job role because there’s about three different stages. I got emailed that I had been chosen to come in for a group interview and was given the option to pick a time and date. When I went there the manager took me to the room which was quite cold seeing as I’d just come from outside which was around one degree. She herself didn’t interview me. She just watched whilst someone else did and took notes. The interview was quite stiff but it was okay. It took about 30 minutes. I later asked as he showed me out why there was no group interview. Turns out that only two people chose the same day as me - me and someone else. The other person didn’t turn up. I said goodbye, happy I had prepared more for a one to one interview. About a week later I recieved a feedback email.

    Entretien

    Very easy interview process. You do a group interview, very easy and simple then one to one interview, they ask you about working as a team, a time you had to help colleague at work, how did you find helping them, also a time you had to make changes of doing something different at work. Honestly they are so desperate they gave everyone the job at the interview. Worst place to work, just because it has a high brand name, it’s a miserable/depressing place to work. I quit after a week.

    Entretien de Supermarket Assistant

    Employé anonyme - Buxton, East Midlands, Angleterre (Royaume-Uni)
    Offre acceptée
    Expérience positive
    Entretien facile

    Candidature

    Le processus a pris +4 semaines. J'ai passé une entrevue à Waitrose (Buxton, East Midlands, Angleterre (Royaume-Uni)) en février 2018.

    Entretien

    2 hour long application with different rounds of customer service questions. You must pass a round to move onto the next. Common sense questions but you may find it difficult if you haven’t worked in a highly customer service based job before.
    Group interview - we were given different things to read (mine was a customer review with ratings from poor to good) and as a team you must discuss what the customers have said and choose 3 key areas that need to be worked on and make an action plan e.g customer service, team communication...
    You have about 5 minutes to do this so make sure you speak up because the interviewer can only mark you on what you contribute. Make sure to come across as a team player (put your point across but make sure to listen and discuss what others think/say)
    1 on 1 interview is 3 questions and then just personal things like how much notice you need to give & any holidays you need etc
    I advise to go through the questions on here and prepare answers to questions before hand so you don’t get caught off guard and have questions prepared to ask at the end of your interview because they love that!

    Entretien de Customer Delivery Driver

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. J'ai passé une entrevue à Waitrose (Glasgow, Écosse (Royaume-Uni)).

    Entretien

    I applied by completing online application form. Got a reply very soon afterwards asking me to take online test. About 3 or 4 days later I was invited to attend assessment instore. This was to be part group assessment, part one-to-one interview.
    Despite trying to prepare for the group test, on the day we were told this was not the case as we were applying for the delivery driver job and this would be an individual test with each applicant sat round a table filling in an action plan. This was a scenario where the driver had to load his van and complete his run while dealing with various problems.
    We had about 30 minutes to do this and, when time was almost up they introduced a new set of problems e.g. dropping cooking oil on a customer's floor.
    From there we were invited one at a time for the interview stage. This involved being asked why I wanted to work at Waitrose followed by 3 scripted questions.
    Told we would be contacted in about 2 weeks. At this point I'm still within that time so still waiting for a response.

    Entretien

    I arrived early to the interview so I decided to familiarise myself with the store layout and ask the employees about their interview and what I should expect (all the employees I spoke to were very nice and gave me some good tips). First I was called into a 1 on 1 interview which lasted approximately 20-25 minutes, and then we had a group interview, also approx (20-25 mins). We had to complete a task that deals with priorities, customer interaction and a task list from your manager. It's quite straightforward but make sure you speak up and give your opinion to the other candidates.
