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 Then another shop floor task to arrange items accordingly working in a team again picking the out of date items out and sorting of products by date , unpacking new products etc.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
The interviewing process was very good as the person doing it was very knowledgeable about the company.
Same as exams.
Group interviews involved tasks to complete giving you the chance to meet new people and a rough idea who you will be working with.
Online application. The interview its self has no structure to it.
