I applied online. I interviewed at Sainsbury’s

Interview

I did the interview, however, the recruiter never bothered to call back or reply to the emails with the results. In my case, I was never told that my interview was unsuccessful, even though I felt that all my answers were very solid and that the interviewers were very engaged. Very disappointed!

The interview involved finding out about me and then the actual reality of the role which was being offered. It felt more like an exercise in figuring out whether there was anything preventing me from doing to job.
