    1. Handing Cvs
    Most stores don't accept them. They say to apply online.

    2. Online vacancies
    All online vacancies are for managers and upper positions. Not even one for general assistant, stockboy, etc.

    So what to do?

    They will only advertise vacancies when they have them. The best thing to do is carry on checking.

    It makes it seem like you need to be a bright person to get a job with Asda/Sainsbury/Tesco and honestly, no offense but I am yet to meet a bright person working at customer level in any of these supermarkets. I have seen very "not very bright" people working there and I wonder how they got their job.

    Can people stop generalising people who work in these supermarkets please? I work in asda, on the shop floor and photo/games desk and I have a BSc, MSc and am currently studying veterinary medicine so will be a vet in the future. Therefore I presume I must be considered bright? Many of the people who work in the stores are young people working part time so they can earn money while they study. This is the case for a lot of people at my store. Yes there are some who arent the brightest, ie my department manager, but not everyone is.

    About Asda's online questionaire, basically if you can read and write to the standard of about a 10 year old (though probably younger), you will pass.

    'Apply Online' can be applied loosely. I work at Morrisons and I printed off an application form online and filled it out, handed it in & got the job.

    I know I will pass. But normally there are tons of people applying for the same job as you. This makes it highly unlikely to get an interview.

    Did they allow you to give them the application form? Who did you give the application form to?

    Places like that autoscreen your CV before sending you the questions.
