Hi there

My friend has been called for a group selection session at Asda for a home delivery shopper/delivery driver job - I know there seem to be a lot of people that work at the supermarkets so does anyone have any advice or anything that she should prepare?

thanks for your help
Kim

Just be friendly and smart. anyone can drive a van and make deliveries. they will be more interested in how you represent their company when dealing with their customers. They may try one or two questions to test how you would react with a difficult customer, but they are spose to ok to work for

cant really offer any advice...But good luck though :)
#3
Yeah good luck as well. Just go along with whatever being told and try to handle any direct questions as best possible. Can't really plan for it tbh.

I work at Asda and i know it's hard just to get past the application form stage sometimes, Asda looks for people who are good communicators and work well in group situations also if you swot up on the Asda value etc your friend should be o.k.

definately do a bit of research into the company, parent company (Wal-Mart) - they may ask "what do you know about the company?" - most of the interviews I have had have asked that question.

If its job security your after then you will be fine, my missus will make sure of that with the amount of money she spends there.

I used to work at Asda and attended the group selection process.What they basically do is give you a series of activities to participate in.There will be observers looking at how you interact with others.

My advice is to be well presented and confident.It can be nerve racking speaking in front of others but that is what you have to do.If I can remember(it was a few years back!) we had to pair up and introduce our partners in the task to the group(name,where from,married,interests,pets,something interesting etc).
The next task was to create and advert for Asda,we were split into groups of 4/5 and discussed in the group ideas slogans,parts to play etc,then present to the rest of the session.

All of these tasks, as I said, are observed,so they look for how you interact with others,how much of a team player you are,whether you listen to others,can you come up with ideas yourself etc.

I personally think this method of recruitment is quite good,more easy going than a one on one interview situation.They do put you at ease and it can be good fun.

I wish your friend good luck.:)

Healthy,sort of and a bit stressed out at the moment(to do with my OH's car needing repaired,parts arriving,not fitting,another part arrives,still does not fit....awaiting a call back today......aaaarghhhh!!!!!:x)

He has my car,I'm sorting his car,can't work until it's repaired so losing money by the day...........but apart from that I'm fine........ABSOLUTELY FINE!!!!!!:whistling:;-)

And breath......bet you sorry you asked:-D

Good luck, take on board all the advice given here and I'm sure yu will do ok.

Let us know how it goes. :thumbsup:
#13
yep mucky pup is right. asda use a marking system for their interviews. you get marks out of 4 for different things, you need to get a 3 or4 for everthing. the 1st thing is appearance-smart.you will probably need to introduce the person next to you, so don't be shy, but don't be cocky either!!

I hate interviews! I'm shy in front of strangers any way and interviews just do my head in, especially the 'role playing' ones.

I normally pass the interviews for the jobs that I don't want because I'm more relaxed, so every time I go to an interview now I try and pretend I don't want it.
