What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
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.
Do you have any interview tips?
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.
