How should you prepare for an interview at Waitrose & Partners?

9 answers

  • Prepare for interview is NOT to reveal you are a trade union member otherwise NO job offer.

  • Consider before hand what makes 'excellent' customer service, this is likely what the interview will be focused on, think what you would do in various situations and how you would respond and approach customers. I was also given a list of Partners with a brief description and skills/training they had, I was then asked to organise them to departments that would ensure the store runs smoothly but ensuring everybody is motivated to work/happy with their position. Some brief questions will also be asked, like when have you noticed a problem and created change to improve it. Its quite a think on yor feet interview that might require a bit of improv. because persoally I hadnt experienced some of the things they were asking with it only being my second job as a student.

  • Dress smartly, arrive timely. Do your homework about the company! Be prepared for a 1:1 interview and group assessment to assess how well you work within a team. Interviewed in London, lovely Partners conducted the interviews and really nice group of candidates.

  • Be prepared for a group interview, it's likely.

  • Be confident and eager to speak, there will be plenty of opportunity for you to do so, so take any chance given to you while remembering to be respectful to others as well.

    Knowledge of food would be a bonus, and people skills are vital during the interview process as well as every day in the job.

  • Think about the behaviour you'd think they want you to exhibit, then make your answers reflect this as you are completing the online situational tests.

  • Dress smartly and be prepared to be asked any questions about former work.

  • Make sure you are confident and have some basic knowledge of the store you're applying to.

  • The first stage is generally a group interview, so be sure to assert yourself, get involved and ask questions and engage with the interviewer.
