    My application still says 'Under review' and it's been just over a month. Is this normal? Also if I’m unsuccessful how will they let me know? Thanks

    Hey. I successfully passed the group interview stage and had my 1to1 interview 3 weeks ago. The lady told me that if I was successful I'd hear by telephone and if unsuccessful I'd hear by letter. I haven't received either. Does anyone have any advice about what to do ?

    Nope, it's for an existing store. It's been just over 3 weeks now so I'd kinda resigned to myself that I hadn't gotten it but I haven't actually got the rejection letter and when I logged into the asda website it still says 'application in progress'. So blah, don't really now what to do. I have had multiple interviews for debehnams and mcdonalds so there is a possibility of them offering me something very soon so I would like to have all my cards on the table before I make a possible choice between them all. Do you think I should call up the store and ask ? I should have asked the woman how long it would take for them to get back to me at the 2nd interview >.<

    Not sure how long it takes when its a existing store, I have been told with new stores it can take up to 4-6 weeks for an answer. I would give them a call, especially as you have applied for other jobs so that way at least you will will know

    Went last month. 19th Sept was my first day, lots of speeches, paperwork, watching dvds. 2nd day for me was cash office training (as thats the job I got) others in my group were doing till training/self scan training. 3rd day Till training, 4th day self scan training. A few from my group got sent to a local supermarket for some "live" training too. Hope this helps!

    Is anyone else having this problem with the online system? Everytime I apply for a new job, it lets me review all the details again but when it comes to the assessment, it just says I can ''close this page'' and I do and then I can't do the assessment it just closes it entirely then I get an email saying I have applied for the job?

    Did the same for me I have applied for 4 vacancies but only did the assessment on the first one. I have just been invited to a Magic event for the last one I applied for so looks like you only need to do it once.

    Try phoning their store, and they should be able to help you out, as that's probably where your Magic session should be.

    If I remember this correctly, you should get 30 minutes lunch (it's normally an hour but people only take 30 mins at my store) which is unpaid. Then you get 30 minutes paid breaks - presumably you can take 2 lots of 15 minutes.
