You will need an email address and a CV to be able to apply.
Your CV should be a Word or PDF document. If you don’t already have a CV use our free CV generator. Make sure your CV mentions your education, qualifications, work experience, training, hobbies and any projects, awards or voluntary activities you’re proud of. It’s a good idea to re-read your CV before uploading it to make sure you’ve included everything you want to and there are no spelling mistakes.
Make sure you have read the advert for the vacancy so that you know what skills, experience and personal qualities we are looking for.
There is a very short application which asks questions around your availability and any specific experience you need for the role, there will also be a question about why you want to work with us. This is your opportunity to stand out from the crowd!
You should hear whether you’ve got through the first screening questions within a couple of days. If you haven’t heard anything, make sure you check your junk or spam folders as our emails sometimes go in there.
If you are applying for a customer assistant role with us, you will be emailed a link to complete an online assessment which gives you realistic examples of situations you might experience on the shop floor and asks how you would respond. This is based more on ‘how’ you like to work rather than ‘what’ you have done in the past, as we don’t need you to have previous retail experience for this role. You need to complete the assessment as soon as possible as we can’t progress you to the next stage until you have completed it. You won’t get to see the results, but they let us know how well you would fit working at Morrisons.
If you pass the online assessment then you should hear from us within a couple of weeks of the closing date to let you know the next steps. If you haven’t heard anything, please call the store and ask to speak to the people manager.
Invitation to assessment centre/ interview
Congratulations on getting to this stage! Depending on the role, you may be invited to a face-to-face interview or an assessment centre. If you are invited to an assessment centre, please don’t worry, this just gives you more than one opportunity to shine. Make sure you’ve done some research, read up on the role and what we do. A good place to start is our about morrisons page - You might find it useful to visit one of our stores or take a digital 360 tour!
Re-read your CV and think about why you’d be good for the role. Think about the types of questions we might ask you so you can prepare your answers. Don’t forget to think about some questions you want to ask us too!
Plan your journey so you arrive on time. You don’t want to rush or be late.
Store interview / Assessment centre
Make sure you wear something comfortable but smart, you want to make a good first impression.
Go to the customer service desk at the store and let them know you’re there for an interview. Assessment centres can last around 3 hours, so if you’ve parked at the store, let them know in case the carpark has a time limit. Take a deep breath and keep calm – nobody knows you better than you. Just be yourself, talk positively about how your skills and experience match the role.
Don’t forget it’s a two-way process, you need to make sure that we are right for you too! Make sure you ask us any questions you may have.
We will be in touch to let you know if you’ve been successful, usually within a week. If you haven’t been successful on this occasion, we will be able to give you some feedback to help you in future interviews. If you are successful, congratulations! We can’t wait for you to join the team! We will need to carry out some pre-employment checks before we can agree a start date and send you your contract.
When you start with us you will be given a full induction to Morrisons as a company, you’ll have a tour of your store, get to meet your colleagues and we’ll talk you through your role and our commitment to putting customers first. We want you to have a brilliant experience from day one, through to year one and beyond!
