Application Advice:

Be yourself - it sounds simple enough, but companies are looking to match you up to their company ethos and values as much as they are your skills and experience. You'll enjoy it much more if you're just being yourself.

Interview Advice:

Be confident, smile and crucially, talk about what you can bring to the company, rather than how the role will be good for you!

Application Advice:

The process was very fast for me. It's an initial application online, a set of online tests - one was maths based, one was prioritising emails, then a video interview which was really bizarre, as there is no-one on the other end - the questions flash up, you get about 10seconds to read, undertand and think of an answer, then a certain amount of time to answer them via webcam. Then it is the assessment day.
As far as advice goes for applying - make sure you want it. It is long days, a lot to learn. and there is a large training folder to work through and complete to timescales - you need to take control of your own learning, as you are literally left to it. You must also be prepared to travel - the likelihood of you being placed in your local store 10 minutes down the road is slim.

Interview Advice:

This was a group assessment day consisting of an ice breaker, group decision making activity, presentation/action plan on a given topic, prioritising activity and an individual interview. The whole thing lasted roughly 9am-3pm. Key things to remember: speak up, but don't speak over people. They are looking for leadership skills, confidence, and personality, along with the ability to reason and influence. In your interview, you'll be asked standard "why do you want the job", "are you willing to work long flexible hours" type questions, along with giving examples of how you have demonstrated leadership, problem solving and challenging events. The day itself is actually not as stressful as it sounds, it is a great chance to meet other grads - you do feel like you are competing for a job against them, but probably over half of the people that attended my assessment day got on to the scheme.

Application Advice:

Interview Advice:

In the video interview take time before each question to think things through, and test out your setup to make sure you record clearly.

Application Advice:

When applying for the role and throughout the assessment process, being able to draw upon and relate scenarios to past work experience is key. You should also ensure that you are familiar with, and understand, the Morrisons core values.

Property Graduate, Asset Management at WM Morrisons

Application Advice:

Research the company values and make sure they align with your own. The folks at Morrisons know these inside and out. Be able to give good examples of what these mean for you.

Interview Advice:

Be able to demonstrate leadership, that you can act proactively. This isn't a grad scheme where someone will be holding your hand all the way through, so you need to be able to take charge. Find the balance here though, taking charge can easily turn into being arrogant, and northern folks are quite humble!

Application Advice:

Know the business- they want to make sure Morrisons is right for you and you are right for Morrisons. As well as showing general intelligence and initiative, you should learn the company values and plan for the next few years.

Interview Advice:

They asked me a lot around how my own experience showed I had displayed qualities they were looking for; such as a One Team attitude, efficiency, and drive. It doesn't do any harm to think of some challenging industry related questions too.

Application Advice:

Sometimes it can take a while to get feedback, however for the most part it went smoothly. The video interview is the strangest thing I've ever done. Don't look at yourself look at the camera.

Interview Advice:

Just be honest, there is no point being anyone but yourself. The assessment centre is a good day but very draining. After speaking to others it isn't the same process as other companies but I think it works well for what the company are looking for.

Application Advice:

For the numerical/verbal and situational test, practice first and write down any formulas that are needed to solve common questions.

Interview Advice:

The assessment centre is group work, interview and group presentation.

The questions are situational so have lots of examples ready that follow the STAR model. Particularly: a time when you have driven change, adapted to change, dealt with conflict, worked in a team, overcome an obstacle, had to be flexible etc...

Application Advice:

Do your research beforehand and think about which of Morrisons Graduate Schemes is right for you. Remember that if you are applying for the manufacturing scheme you need to be flexible with location.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself- if you're not, and you are successful, then the role may not be right for you.

Manufacturing Graduate, at WM Morrisons

Application Advice:

Be yourself - the application process is completely strengths based and so the only way to impress the assessors is to demonstrate which of those strengths you possess.

Attention to detail is key, especially with the finance scheme

Love retail! After only 7 months in role, I have become almost obsessed with supermarkets so if that isn't your thing, this probably isn't the job for you!

Interview Advice:

Application Advice:

Be true to yourself as Morrisons recruit based on Morrisons values so they are looking for a certain type of person.

Interview Advice:

Ensure you work as a team in team exercises and don't try to criticize other peoples views.

Also try to use a wide variety of examples in the interview as apposed to using the same one for each question.

Finance Graduate, Finance at WM Morrisons
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Complete the tests as quickly as possible, do not leave them until the last moment as you will not be in the best position to achieve the highest results. Do not over think the questions and write up answers to provisional questions you believe they may ask you as this will naturally put you into the habit of being questioned and thinking around the subjects associated with the job.

Interview Advice:

I would advise that the candidate should asses the skills set that they have and think of specific examples of times when these skills have been highlighted in work related environments. Ensure that you do plenty of research on the company so that you are certain that the company is the right fit for you and then when it comes to any interviews, you know that you are answering truthfully.

Application Advice:

Be yourself and let your personality and strengths shine through. It's not about what you studied or what jobs you've had before but whether the behaviours and qualities you demontrate are compatible with Morrisons and the scheme you're applying for.

Interview Advice:

Again, it's about letting your strengths and behaviours do the talking. If you're passionate then show passion, if you're someone who loves to drive change then let that shine through. Engage with the others on the assessment centre and show your interpersonal skills, Morrisons aren't just looking for somebody to sit behind a computer all day, you need to be able to interact with a wide variety of people on a day to day basis.

Application Advice:

The paperwork will look really good but you must be aware that when they mean hands on it is hands on. Dont be suprised if you find yourself working 10-15 hours extra a week, dont be suprised if your put in the freezer for the whole day, and dont take it to heart when you are spoken down to by other senior members of staff. Do not be afraid to put your foot down.

Interview Advice:

General questions you would expect i.e example of a challenging situation, example of a time you solved a problem.

Retail Graduate, Bradford at WM Morrisons
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Be yourself, smile lots, be honest about experience and the areas you need to develop, give lots of examples, don't rely purely on degree i.e. what else have you done to expand your horizons?

Interview Advice:

Be prepared for a lot of 'how do you cope in this situation', 'what would you do if x', 'how would you go about doing x' 'demonstrate a time where you did x'. rather than lots of box ticking questions. Look at the Morrisons core values and try to incorporate these into your answers.

Application Advice:

Easy to say, but be confident and assertive. Do not feel rushed and take time to answer questions properly if needed. everyone else will be in the same position, and likely be as nervous as you are, so try to come across in a more confident and professional manner.

Interview Advice:

don't be afraid to stand out from the rest of the candidates, the likelihood is that they will be interviewing a large number of graduates and you need to ensure that you create the right impressions and are remembered.

Meat Buyer, Butchery at WM Morrisons

Application Advice:

Don't give false information in your application, it can lead to incredibly awkward conversations further down the application process if picked up on.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself at the Assessment Centre/Interview; having seen these in action now I'm in a role, it is all too obvious when people are putting on a false persona to seem more "business minded" or "professional". At an interview you will be pitching to people who are likely to be working alongside you, therefore they will be looking for a candidate they can get along with as much as ones that are professional in their mannerisms.

IT Security Analyst, IT Security at WM Morrisons
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Be ready for hard work. If you don't want to get your hands dirty, break a nail or work long hours this isn't the right role for you!
However if you are willing to prove your worth, it's an incredibly rewarding and challenging place to work that will not only build you as a person but will give you professional confidence

Interview Advice:

What would you do in this situation xyz - Remember the customer is always right, (Even if they're not). You don't always have to give them free things and let them walk all over you, but being compassionate and taking the time to listen is always a good place to start.
You'll be working with people everyday, all day. So make sure you can adapt to different people and their working styles. If you have to give a presentation or do group work make sure you ask what your group thinks. Put forward your ideas, but take a step back to recieve the feedback.

Technical Graduate – Online, Food Quality at WM Morrisons
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Understand what values Wm Morrisons has and what their approach is to their business. This is a core aspect to how we work on a daily basis, as we are more than just a supermarket selling fruit and vegetables.

As well as understanding Wm Morrisons from an internal point of view, it is important to gain an understanding of everything from an external point of view. So for example, understanding what new technology, news stories, etc, might affect the way Wm Morrisons operate. Or knowing what are competitors currently doing and what their future plans are in order to gain better knowledge of the industry as a whole.

Interview Advice:

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?".

Junior Project Manager, Projects at WM Morrisons

Application Advice:

Only apply if you really want to work in the retail sector - we live and breathe food and customer values, and if you can't see yourself enjoying this then don't bother.
Are you sure the Group Wide scheme is for you? So many people apply and you could be more suited to one of the many other schemes we have on offer. This scheme is known to be the toughest to get on to because of the really good competition.
Relax and research - it isn't rocket science to find out Morrisons recent performance, so make sure you know it.
The tests aren't that hard - just relax and you will be fine. You don't even need a super high score to pass.
The video interview will ask you a 30 second snippet of yourself, why you want to go on the scheme, why you want to work at morrisons e.t.c. so don't give a generic answer that people won't remember - you need to stand out. Again, learn about Morrisons beforehand.

Interview Advice:

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.

Application Advice:

Make sure you reflect yourself as a well rounded individual. On the group-wide scheme in particular, there are graduates from a wide variety of backgrounds and degree programmes including languages, politics, speech therapy and engineering. Don't think that you won't get a place because you haven't done a business or finance degree. Morrisons prides itself on having a diverse group of graduates who they believe will be future leaders.

Interview Advice:

Don't get too nervous! I was extremely nervous prior to the assessment centre, but was put at ease the moment I arrived and was much more relaxed than I had expected. Be prepared to take part in various activities.

Make sure you thoroughly research the business in terms of history, financials and any recent news. You probably won't need to know all the management board members' names but being aware of a few key individuals eg CEO and CFO would be useful.

In the interview, be open and honest about what you think you can bring to the role and what you want to learn and get out of it. Ask the interviewer how long they've worked at Morrisons and what attracted them. It is always interesting to hear their point of view.

Application Advice:

Be sure you know why you want to work in retail. Have confidence but not arrogance, research the company and market to identify the challenges and share your opinion when necessary (suitably backed up with evidence). As with all roles, tailor your application. In this instance to a retailer - focus on things such as simplicity, communication, commercial awareness, managing change, speed, and think about how things could be done differently and why this is good.

Competency based answers, use a wide range of experiences, come across positively.

Application Advice:

If you enjoy a challenge and hold a strong work ethic with a passion for business and numbers then buying is ideal. You have to be able to take responsibility for your decisions and know your category and the industry as best you can to help you make the right decisions. Confidence with numbers and reporting helps but you have to obtain the right attitude and work as a team to achieve success.

There is a high level of responsibility with the role but an equally high level of job satisfaction.

Ensure you include all relevant work experience in your application but more so what skills you have gained and developed.

Interview Advice:

Do your research on the company, visit your local store and take note of what stands out to you most on a particular area and how you view it as a customer. for example is it easy to shop, price mix, vs. competitors etc. Most of all don't get bogged down on the day on what is right and wrong just make sure your personaility shows and that you are willing to work hard and progress within the company.

Application Advice:

1) Don't think your degree isn't relevant and let this put you off, for most of the schemes there isn't the prerequisite of a certain degree and it's fantastic to see graduates on the schemes from a variety of degree backgrounds - from engineering to theology. This results in a fantastic, diverse mix of people and different ways of thinking.

2) Be clear on the company values, and think through whether you will fit in well with these.

3) Do your research on the company and know what is new to the business (e.g. online, convenience). Also have an awareness of the wider retail market and think through where Morrisons fits into this bigger picture.

Interview Advice:

The interview was largely competency based so select a variety of responses from your past experiences to really show yourself. These examples don't have to be work related,
