An absolute shambles! I applied online completing a multiple-choice questionnaire.
A few days later, I received a call telling me to attend a group interview at Asda Oadby, Leicester.
I arrived at the store and waited around with the other applicants. We were eventually met by an Asda worker and took to an aisle where we were told to put stock out. Everyone still had their coats on and those who had handbags had to leave them on the floor as they filled the shelves. About three safety knives were handed out to open the boxes; however, there were eight people in the group.
After twenty minutes of this, we were took upstairs to an office where our passports were photocopied and that was it.
Nobody in the group was asked any questions whatsoever! Just put stock out and photocopy our passports!
Those who worked in the store were totally unprepared to receive the job applicants!
Really short and easy ‘interview’ over the phone, only one or two questions asked, then taken in for induction a few days later, Whole process took less than a week.
An interview at asda is non-existent. They call you & invite you for an interview but its just 2 hours of free labour for them. They put you to work straight away and then 2hrs later ask you your availability and when can you start. They are always short staffed with a high staff turnover. Ask yourself why?!
Interview process it's made clear trade union members are not welcome at this company
Had a group interview,there was around 12 of us,we had to pair up in groups to make a grand national race horse out of buttons,lolly sticks,buttons and glitter.Then we were asked questions of what animal would you be and what would you take to space whilst around 5 members of staff were hitting things down in clipboards walking around the room.I thought I was in a hidden camera show.
Relaxed but don't be fooled by what they tell you. That Asda is a great place to work and that it is one big family. Not true.
If anyone has the asda life assessment it is so laid back and doesnt feel like an interview. at mine all we did was fill some forms out and try out tasks on the shop floor which i was on checkout. it was really useful to see if the role was right for me and i enjoyed the hands on experience. they were assessing my capabilities and then as a group we were asked some simple questions like why asda and could ask any questions we liked. we were also shown information on asda treatment for colleagues and the EFF system
Interview room of 3 very young asda managers who had no real people skills and kept flirting with one another. The other candidates who were in my assessment group were a mere 16, 17, 18 and recent school leavers and there were two older mums around 50 wanting to return to work . It was a tour of the store, some forms and showing how asda puts customers first and not professional /formal just some young uns that get to interview folk for a bit of fun , no one needs brains just the ability to show up for shifts .
Very relaxed, they will put you at ease, they want to see your real personality.
Pretty straight forward... no 1:1 only group interview which consists of introducing ourselves then floor assessment first task was to observe things in isles like product expiry date or anything out of place just general observations. Then another shop floor task to arrange items accordingly working in a team again picking the out of date items out and sorting of products by date , unpacking new products etc. Afterwards we had a feedback sheet to fill out and just general talk about the role, availability of working hours etc. Very relaxed interview and productive
