Noticed loads of ASDA jobs on the Job Centre Website for their Bromborough store.

https://hourly.asda.jobs/2057/ASP/TG/cim_home.asp?partnerid=25222&siteid=5034

I applied for two posts the other day, and it took almost half an hour to go through the whole process. Would have made it easier if you could apply once for the various locations.

the same thing happened to me maisie. I was angry at them and upset for not even giving me a chance. I am really desperate for a job, i couldnt even get through to the application process of morrisons because they closed the phone lines 2 days after opening for their new shop in new brighton. I am also angry that you cant reapply for another 6 months, so any new jobs we dont stand a chance, thanks a bunch asda and all the bloody number of supermarkets we have

I worked for Asda many years ago and they have a strict policy when it comes to recruiting. Even if you get to interview stage, it doesn't mean you'll get any further. They tend to have interview days where they do group activities to see how suitable you are.

I'm afraid being desperate for a job isn't enough these days frown I wish it was.

seams asda are a bit picky...
how the heck can they tell properly wether someone is suitable or not, before even meeting them in an interview...

i'd be curious to know what their policy is, as application forms are mainly for you to state details, experience etc..
its the actual interview that shows what kind of person you are, i would think... mad

They generally have a psychological testing section on the application forms - that's how they tell if you're suitable or not.

so basically you gotta be clever to work on a checkout??!!
omg..sounds a bit crazy to me... confused
i'm in my 40's and work at a very busy shop and do tills and shop floor and i don't have a degree or anything..it ain't rocket science is it to work in a shop...

sounds like asda need to do basic appl forms and give the people wanting to work a chance an interview to show they can do it....

sorry if i was rambling..its just suprised me how picky they are

I don't think it's about being clever, it's just that they want a certain "type" of person. Generally it's someone who's a team player as they're shit hot on that kind of thing, but someone who can also work under their own steam unsupervised. I guess a certain level of intelligence helps too as there's a lot of in-house training and courses that they encourage staff to go on and some of them are pretty tough.

Ramble away. I don't work for them anymore wink

i work in a team and also alone a lot of the time, and do it quite well(i think)...but think i'd fail the app form if it was phsycological...(spelling?)

good job Morrisons don't do that or i prob wouldn't have gotten an interview confused

Spot the "Management Consultants" who make up wonderful and weird ideas to justify their fees.

I've been through the "Price Waterhouse" and "Oliver Wight" mangles as well as a few other of these high ranking consultants.

If they made a reasonable attempt at understanding your business first, before decimating what you have in order to rebuild it and claim the glory under their own measurement criteria, it would be less painful to see the damage they cause. "you will have moral - otherwise you are not committed to the company.

In one case, we went from handling regular multi-million pound contracts to most contracts worth a few tens of thousands, with "promises" of other contracts that never seemed to arrive.

Me, bitter - totally!

TQM, Six Sigma, Process Management, Black belts etc etc

Just checked my emails and got a rejection from Asda Birkenhead. It took me over 1 hour to fill in the on-line application form and 3 lots of assessments.
