    Hi, I have an interview with waitrose on Monday, everywhere online seems to say it's going to be a group interview but the email says nothing about a group interview. I'm wondering if anyone knows if it will be or not. It says the interview will take 1 hour. I'm a terrible public speaker is why I ask lol.

    I have checked that out already I was more wondering if anyone could confirm that they was told it'd be a group assessment as none of the emails or texts I've had have mentioned the word group. Id like to know what to prepare for is all

    Wouldn't it be logical to not answer a question with unhelpful information? I dont fancy ringing them and asking questions about my interview. I'm asking here because I've seen various questions about interviews

    Unhelpful? you mean the fastest way to get the answer you want?

    Just pick up the phone and ask. Are you scared if the phone? HR wont mind.

    How do you know it doesnt vary from store to store? If they have suggested a slot for one hour then any scope for group assessment seems extremely limited. Going through the other interviews would have flagged up if it was policy.

    That's why I asked on here because every other interview seems to have been group I wanted to know if they were told it was going to be, I know how picky waitrose are and I wouldn't want to put them off by ringing them and asking questions about the interview. I have to nail this lol

    An update for anyone whos interviewing soon. the interview went really well, it was a 1 to 1, or 1 to 2 should I say as it was two interviewers, they started by asking about myself and then left me alone for 20 minutes with a list of things that needed doing along with the profiles of several employees and I had to decide who would do what and why and what was most important. Then they asked me and few more questions about myself and that was it.
