Business Analyst, Convenience at WM Morrisons
"Really learn the values. We live and breathe them and if you don't fit them then don't even bother applying. Really learn our strategy for the year. My one secret - "The Plan on a Page". Don't forget this. It will look impressive if you focus on our strategy as it will show you have done your research and will be able to fit in to our organisations plans well. Have confidence in yourself and in your convictions - you will be overlooked if you don't. Don't be domineering or arrogant - it puts people off hiring you. Remember to prepare some general answers: "why do you want to work at Morrisons", "why do you want to do this scheme"?... You should always be expected to be asked this in an interview so make sure that your answer wows. Don't lie - they will see straight through you."

Technical Graduate - Online, Food Quality at WM Morrisons
"A lot of the interview questions were based around the values of Wm Morrisons, therefore I cannot stress enough how important it is to read, understand and know these values. It is then a good idea to think about how you can link these values into your generic interview questions about showing examples on communication, leadership, teamwork, etc. There will be specific questions that relate to the graduate scheme you are applying for. So for example, as I am on the IT and Business Change graduate scheme, a question that I was asked was "What current technology interests you most in business and why?". "
