What I would change in the business.

The Assessment centre consists of 7/8 different tasks and ranked on a traffic light system. They made the day as relaxed as possible which helped my nerves and was a great way to encourage me to act as myself.

Commercial Graduate, UK General Merchandise at Tesco
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Tesco is always changing what they're looking for in candidates - don't take it personally if you don't get through all the stages. Prepare your examples of their values in advance - it's useful to be able to draw on these quickly when asked at interview. Also, keep on top of business happenings and retail in general, a commercial awareness is very important. It's all about networking and collaboration within and across teams and sharing knowledge, so bear this in mind!

Interview Advice:

The assessment centre is similar to most others - a group discussion, a 1-1 (or 1-several) interview, an analysis task. Just use your nous and you'll be fine.

For both the phone interview and the assessment centre, be ready with answers based on the values and skills that Tesco is looking for (these change all the time, but they should let you know in advance.)

Commercial Trainee, UK General Merchandise at Tesco
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

If you don't hear back at any stage as to whether or not you have been successful then chase them for a response! I did not hear for weeks after my telephone interview and presumed I had not been successful. It was only on a whim that I emailed and queried only to find out that I had been successful and it was an oversight that I hadn't been notified.

Interview Advice:

Relax into the assessment day. It is a long day and if you are not being yourself it will become apparent. For merchandiser positions I had to do a numeric test based on trade data, a presentation about risks and opportunities which I was able to prepare in advance of the day, and had several group tasks. My advice for the group tasks would be that it is not always about getting your idea to win or be chosen. You need to demonstrate that what you are doing is in the best interests of the customer and that you can listen to and build on the ideas of your peers.

Trainee Merchandiser, Clothing at Tesco

Application Advice:

Assistant Buyer, Grocery at Tesco

Application Advice:

Don't worry about the product area you want to work in; there are lots of opportunity to move around once you're inside Tesco. Focus on your skills and how they will make you into a great technologist. Being analytically minded, focused and innovative are key.

Interview Advice:

My most difficult question was "When have you failed at something and how did you come back from it?".

I'd recommend being open and honest, but always focus on the positives; what you gained from the experience and why it's made you a better person, but be prepared for the follow up of "How do we know it won't happen again?".

Ensuring you have examples of all the skills you claim to have, and answering the questions with real life examples of how you have developed those skills.

Interview Advice:

Make sure you research Tesco well, there are lots of great things that Tesco does in the community that are not well publisised. Having knowledge of these will be impressive, but may also align with your personal values and make you a better fit for Tesco. Also, Tesco are keen to ensure we are keeping up with new trends, now more than ever, so being able to showcase you have a keen eye for innovation and keeping up with the latest thinking on areas that interest you would be a great way to showcase this skill.
