    Q1 - Why would you say no to your manager?! Obviously a bad answer.
    Question 1: You are refilling a section of shelves in the store which you need to have completed before your break. Your manager approaches you and asks you to take your break an hour earlier as one of your colleagues needs to leave early today.

    Tell your manager that you cannot change the time of your break as you need to finish refilling the shelves.

    Lets look at this:

    So, NEED to have completed before your break. Based on this statement in the question, I view having a break earlier will mean I probably won't have the task done before standard break.

    A trick question if you ask me.

    Okay, well as a word of advice - don't say no to your manager. Ever.

    But, what happens if my progress with stacking the shelf was hindered by this early break meaning the shelf was not stacked before break which remember I NEED to do.... >_<

    If a manager over rides your current task to get you to have an early break so you're available later. He/she will realise that it will hinder your current task and that it will take more time. As long as the task is completed within the new boundaries he/she sets or a reasonable time there wouldn't be a problem. Common sense. For all questions, just assume you are there to please every person you encounter, not to please yourself. Good luck with your other applications.

    PS. Often this sort of screening will reject you just because they have reached the maximum number of applications.

    Not in this case, I don't think.

    I actually work for Tesco and I can 100% see why you'd be deemed unsuitable. Sorry, but everyone else is right!

    These are multiple choice answers? Some of them seemed quite lazy and limited.

    1,2,6,8,9,12 stick out like sore thumbs for me as things that I generally wouldn't do.

    And 13....well, if you're looking for something where the challenges are manageable...ha!
