The questions may not be offensive in any way to anyone and must relate to the job in hand. This is an opportunity for Tesco to meet the candidates and get to know the candidate better so they must give a good impression but so do the candidates. 4. 4 Tescos will ask the candidate a series of questions and they can answer them however they want to. Tesco will also give the opportunity for the candidate to ask any question that they may have or queries about the job.
Tesco will judge the candidates on the overall impression that they have made in the interview. 4. 5 Tesco has also a job of being aware of medical information and any qualification information on the candidate.

This is when they contact the person by letter or by phone confirming if they have the job or not. 5. 0 Preparation 5. 1 To make sure that you have chosen the right person for the job you need to carefully plan. Organisation will have different ways of managing interviews they won’t all use the same method as Tesco PLC.

Telephone interviews are much quicker and less time consuming but not the most useful way, as you can’t see the other person’s body language that is being interviewed. Team/ Panel interviews are also used in Tesco’s organisation this allows the organisation to gain different opinions about the applicant and also a panel of experts may be used to ask the applicant different questions that are related to special fields in the organisation.
