I went for an interview at the Irlam depot for a 7.5t driving job. The manager of the Manchester depot who was supposed to interview me wasnt in so the Wigan manager interviewed me. He was a very genuine guy ( i wished id been applying for his depot by end of the interview ) fairly informal interview, answered all my questions, told me all about the role. Obviously i know they arent going to mention the negatives but im old enough to take everything at face value. There is a fairly strict screening and background check, but this is understandable as there is a lot trust involved as the delivery drivers also install some products in customers houses. Screening process took a couple of weeks. During the interview i was asked questions like, "give an example of when you have gone and exceeded customer expectations"
I was pretty much offered the job at the end of the interview subject to background checks and references.
The interview is very standard however the outcome of the interview took a month of chasing and being ignored even though your promised an answer within 3 days very poor communication
Asked a few questions and then its welcome time.
Didn’t have one.
Face to face interview and training
I do interviews regularly, Interview process is straight forward, general things like whats your proudest moment, bits around what you are like as a person, have you worked in sales, describe a sale, describe team work in a difficult situation, how do you find it best to learn? Where do you see yourself in 5 years. We are looking for confidence and straight answers, so always best to be as straight forward as you can with limited delay to answers, we dont ask maths questions in the interview we have a screening online test at the application phase to auto screen our candidates on the new myhub platform. When applying try and be detailed with your availabillity so if you only want to work 3 days but are available for all please write that in. Makes everything easier. We are flexible to a degree
Mine was relatively straight forward:
- Applied online
- Couple of weeks got a call from the manager who asked for my availability (Black Friday etc) and wanted a interview in-store
- Interview in-store was alright; Basic chat in manager's office then a 10min walk about the departments talking to the staff - then back in the office for some basic & weirdly worded competency questions. Once that was done, told to expect a phone call within the next 2 days (turned out 3 days) on whether your in/not.
Quite simple - no worries at all!
Plus i got the job.
Questions based of of things written in your cv and the interviewer will take notes and ask a few questions such as what a costumer expects from a good employee and what should a good employee do
Relevant and challening, welcoming
