I have applied for a job at Iceland food and the application deadline was 4 days ago but they haven't reached out to me and also I logged into my Iceland careers account and it still says my application is in progress.What does that mean?
Could it be that my application is unsuccessful?

No.
A few friends have, they received their job offers 11-15 days after the application deadline.

Might well be collating all the applications, and arranging a meeting to discuss all the candidates.

One after lockdown, six before.
Only complaint I've heard from any of them was about limited training.

The complaints were about not getting enough training.
The quantity of new recruits probably vary according to local area, job role, season and staff turnover.

HumbleBee_xI don't have much experience either but may I ask what did you put on your CV in order to make it stand out since you didn't have any previous 'Retail' experience?

There's an option to say you have no previous experience.
