      Video interview

      Some of our roles will ask you to do a video interview at the application stage. It’s a great opportunity for you to bring who you are to life from what we’ve seen on paper – and let us see your personality, along with your key skills and attributes. Don’t worry, they’re only ever a few minutes long and you’ll be aware of the time throughout the recording.

      TOP TIP – Have a practice before doing the video interview you’re going to submit. It’s easy to miss the key things you want to get across when you feel nervous or restricted by time – a little practice will help you make sure you don’t miss any of the good stuff!

      Interview and Assessment

      In person or virtual depending on location and timescales, our interviews focus on our values and the key technical skills the role needs. Wherever possible, we do like to meet you in person – it gives you the chance to see where you’d be working and meet your potential manager.

      Top Tip – Remember an interview is a two-way process. It’s also there for you to assess if we’re the right fit, and ask any questions you have.


      We’ll be in touch to let you know if you’ve been successful or not. If you’ve not been successful this time, we’ll give you feedback to help you move forward, and encourage you to keep an eye on our careers site for future opportunities.

      If you have been successful, congratulations! We’ll then send you an offer letter and complete some pre-employment checks ahead of you starting. We’ll make sure you have everything you need to know ahead of getting your Asda career journey.
