    Okay so i really dont understand the questionaire.I mean okay I dont mind the questions as much but the answers!Like seriously!If anyone has done the boots questionaire,they would know what I'm talking about.So how do you answer the questions exactly?Im not asking for the answers but do they look for mostly honesty.? mean they ask questions like have i broken a rule before?Obviously i have but would it be wrong if i say definately true (5).I have tons of experience as a sales assistant & i dont want to fail this questionaire cause i know i would be so good at this job!Help

    Is there some space to explain why did you broke it? If yes, you could explain and say that you've learnt from it and the next time you didn't break the rules.

    I appreciate that you're trying to be honest. That's excellent work ethic.

    You should select No, Never broken a rule. That is the 'correct' answer as far as the system is concerned.

    I applied for a job there the other day , I swear that questionnaire sounds like its been wrote by a ditsy stupid person , particularly the Personality test . By the end of the test I'd pretty much convinced myself that the job isn't right for me anyway , they expect you to make solid friendships and be a people person and bla bla bla , all I want is a goddamn part time job which I can manage with my studies ! I gave it my best shot but still haven't received my results.

    I applied for a job there 2 yesterday I would love to work for boots- only problem I've found is they never seem to have vacancys- I've applied for no7 adviser and although I love make up and have a saleing background I don't think I've got much chance of getting it as I have no make-up experience ( apart from doing my own/ mums) haha guess you never know though good luck with all your applications x

    I always put the answer down of what I think the employer will want to see, regardless if its true or not, as these kind of things (as opposed to actual past work experiences and academic achievements) you can stretch the truth and they will never know any better.

    I got an email back earlier today saying I failed to meet the minimum requirements and can't apply for a job again for 15 MONTHS ! 15 months , do you know how much can happen in such a space of time ? Lol I could win the lottery and buy boots but still couldn't aply looooool. Would have to be one of the worst pshycometric tests ever , the most stupid , repetitive questions I have ever seen ... I hope Boots ends up closing down for ever like Woolworths or something hahahaha

    I guess it would depend on how many people applied and when the closing deadline is. If loads of people applied, even if it is done by computer, it could be a lot of applications to process. And as you only applied yesterday, very few jobs can get back to you within 24 hours so just be patient, you have to go through the interview process afterwards anyway which would take even longer. Which position have you applied to?

    Customer assistant & yeah that's true.My impatience is like a little kid waiting for the ice cream van!lol.I'll be gutted if i dont get the job as ive been working as a sales assistant for 3 years at my last job.I hear they look for mostly postive & sociable collegues which i read on their site so i chose answers relating to that on the personality questions.Compared to last time i chose answers like 'Im quick at making decisions' etc.

    The questionnaire would always be difficult as you can't tell what they're asking for. In my opinion, the interview was easier and normally I'm quite quiet so I was nervous but it turned out great

    Well done ! I hope you get the job

    . Boots can go screw itself 15 months for failing a retarded set of questions which dont reflect in the slightest the capabilities of a potential employee. Well done though
