What questions did they ask during your interview at Tesco?

14 answers

  • Why do you want to work at tesco

  • They asked five questions. Some can have follow up questions but they aren't difficult. Not in order:

    1. Tell me about a time you were subject to follow policy/rules that you didn't like - did you follow them? did you challenge them? did you have a better way of doing things?

    2. Tell me about a time where you were under pressure - how did you deal with it?

    3. Tell me about a time where you had to use teamwork

    4. Tell me about a time where you had to deal with a complaint/upset customer - was it resolved?

    5. Tell me about a time where you had to adapt to a change


    This may not be the same for every store but this is what was on the Tesco interview sheet that the interviewer was filling out.

  • “Ask me a bit about yourself”
    Then a bunch of “tell me a time when” questions like-

    You went the extra mile for a customer,

    You handled pressure,

    You got good feedback,

    Worked as a team,

    Dealt with challenging customers etc

  • Personal based, for example -

    "Tell me a bit about yourself"


    "Give an example of when you have felt under pressure and how you dealt with it"


    "Give an example when you had to adapt to a change"


    And customer based questions such as -


    "Describe a time you went above and beyond for a customer"


    "Describe a time you have dealt with a difficult customer, how did you deal with them and how did they respond"
