    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tesco.

    Interview

    A phone interview with basic interview questions (where are you currently working/ what experience do you have/CV based questions) followed by a face to face interview which included a role play situation where they asked job based questions and also a formal interview. It was quite casual and enjoyable and I was advised I got the job the same day.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a situation where you had a difficult customer and how you resolved the situation.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation, salary was set and the start date was pretty rigid due to training.
