Hello,
I recently gave in my CV at my local Iceland store as they had a poster up saying that they are hiring. Does anyone know how long it might take to hear back, and any tips for the application? Many thanks for your help.

Hey, It could possibly take up to a week as they would have to shortlist many applicants that have applied. Which application are you talking about?

Good luck for your opportunity and I hope you get selected and tips for the application would be is to sell all your good points into the application. Briefly describe why they should choose you and what can you bring to the organisations that other individuals can't? Whats your skills? Why should they consider you? What makes you so good? What experience do you have? etc

I worked for Iceland, I heard back from them pretty quickly. The interview wasn't scary. Just be yourself on professional behaviour and you'll be fine

Hi I applied for a retail assistant role online and i had to do a questionnaire. Does anybody know the answers to them as I am worried because they haven't got back to me yet? But how long does it usually take to get back?

do you remember anything about your interview?
I’ve just done mine, the questions are quite repetitive.
In a nut shell, the first question I got asked was to talk about myself - what I get up to, things I’m passionate about, that is why it’s a good idea to get involved in extra curricular you acc like and also things within your school community, this kind of question will always come up in interviews and it gives you something to talk about. I also got asked about what I could bring the company, and a few scenarios, but Yh having a few things to talk about in the first question really helped as almost everything has tansferable skills. The interviews aren’t pressure filled at all, well mine wasn’t at all. Just be professional, your young they know this is probably one of your first ever jobs so just chill

Hope this helps someone😊

Anyone that’s been working at Iceland for a little while now... I need your help

So, on my rota I got an authorised absence cos they hadn’t put me down on enough hours for me to meet my contract

My question is should I get paid for this “authorised absence” or not?

Thanks
