63 answers

  • To be honest, friendly and willing.

  • Be myself give the ansaer truthfully and be politely

  • Be confident, be the first to answer the questions the managers give you in the group interview, dress smart, have a smile and use all your experience you've gained as your tool to get the job always referring to past jobs/experience

  • Be my self and answer truthfully to all my questions..

  • I've been a Tesco customer for a long time, I feel, I should join Tesco and help the public

  • Be presented on the day looking smart and tidy

  • Research the company and role you want within the company

  • Be well presented on the day. A suit and tie isn't necessary, but a clean pressed shirt and smart trousers and shoes will go down well (with or without a tie!).

    Interview takes place (over 3 hours) in four stages, with an introduction, a Customer Service Assessment, a task, and then a 1-to-1 with one of the managers.


    The intro consists of some information, and an overview of the day ahead, getting to know your interviewer/s and discussing availability and vacancies in the store. Some light paperwork here, and they should be very accommodating if you struggle to understand or read the forms, so don't worry!


    The second part is a Customer Service Assessment where you will be asked to work with one of the staff while they do their day-to-day. An example would be working with a checkout operator, and assisting customers with bagging their shopping for 10-15 min.


    The task might be to build a paper tower (without sellotape), build a bridge from spaghetti, or something similar. Tasks are more about how you work in a team than how well you do at the task itself. Don't be afraid to get your ideas out there, but be respectful of everyone else in the group too!


    The 1-on-1 will of course depend on the manager interviewing you, however there are some scripted questions. Be prepared to give examples of when you have been in certain situations before (like when you have gone the extra mile for someone). Don't be afraid to use examples from your personal life rather than professional if you're struggling!


    Lastly, be yourself, and try to relax. At the end of the day, being genuine, willing to learn, and trustworthy is the most important thing. Good luck!

  • Built a 6 ft paper tower I a team of 5, before you go just google it,
    I didn't but still managed to complete the task as team leader well within the time.

  • Try and attend the interview sober and drug free.
