John Lewis Graduate Assessment Centre


John Lewis Graduate Assessment Centre


Hi Everyone, Has anyone else been invited to a AC for John Lewis? Has anyone had an experience of the format or the AC? How many attend etc. I know it is two days long and you have to pass the first day in order to reach the second…

Please help!!



Two days long? Do you know where it’s held - London or somewhere else? It seems a bit harsh to send people home before the second day!


Yea you get a selection of places to take it… Mine is in Nottingham. Its like a group-focused day on day 1 and you then find out if you made it to day 2, and its more interview based? Ever heard anything like this before?


What roles are these assessment centres for?

I have an interview and an aptitude test for John Lewis grad finance scheme coming up. Anyone else have one?


Mine is in Retail, I didnt have an interview so your may follow a different recruitment system?


Once you go there, you and all the other candidates will be taken to a room where will will be a series of presentations telling you about life at john lewis, their future plans etc. After that each candidate will be given a paper based test. It will be more like a passage giving you tons of information. Then, there will be about 40 questions (i dont really remember) in which you would have to process the data contained in the passage and answer the questions.
After this each of you will be individually called for a 10 min. short interview about basic things such as tell us about a time when you had to…blah blah.
Once this is done, your assessment is done. If you are successful in it, you will be called for a final interview.


what kind of shl online test they take? is it numerical/verbal or talent screener?

pls help!


Hi all,

Has anyone had a final interview with JL finance scheme? (or has an upcoming final interview)


Hi abcd1946,

I have not had a final interview yet, however I have been invited to an assessment centre for the Technology Scheme. As you are asking about a final interview, have you already had an assessment centre? If so, would you mind sharing how it went?
