Prepare yourself for leading employers

Boots assessment centre

Once you have successfully completed the online tests, you will be required to attend an assessment day at Boots’ Support Office at its Nottingham HQ.

Within this final stage of the process, you could be asked to complete some or all of the following exercises: an interview, a group exercise, and a case study (see details below). You will also be given more detail on embarking on a career with Boots.

Boots interview

The interview will be one-to-one and will follow a traditional interview format. It is competency-based and you should expect questions that focus on your drive to solve problems and to be a supportive individual and team member.

You may also be asked questions that are specific to your individual application, so it is wise to be aware of what information you have previously supplied to Boots earlier in the application process.

Boots group exercise

The group exercise is a chance to let yourself shine as a member of a team. You will be given a brief that contains a fictional business scenario and the necessary information to go with it. Your team then needs to make a reasoned decision on how to proceed.

During the given time period, candidates will be observed by Boots recruitment specialists. You will be tested during this process for how you interact within a group setting.

Boots case study

This exercise will centre on a case study that you will be given on the day at the centre. This will focus on the area of business that you are applying for, and will typically require a decision and an explanation of it.

This exercise is a chance for you to demonstrate your speaking skills and your ability to understand information. When practicing for this stage, remember that confidence and clarity are key; rehearsing with friends or family members who can give an objective opinion beforehand will help.

Boots Tests Tips

1Familiarize Yourself with the Formats

One of the keys to success is understanding the types of questions you might face. Spend some time getting to know the format of the different tests so nothing catches you off guard.

2Simulate Testing Conditions

Create an environment similar to the test day — quiet, uninterrupted, and timed. This will help you get accustomed to working under pressure and improve your time management skills.

3Focus on Your Weak Areas

After taking a few practice tests, you’ll notice certain areas might need more work. Direct your efforts on improving these aspects to boost your overall performance.

4Approach it Calmly

It’s natural to feel nervous, but staying calm can significantly affect your performance. Breath deeply, stay focused on the questions, and don’t rush through them.

5Review and Reflect

Don’t just practice blindly. Take the time to review your answers, understand your mistakes, and learn from them to enhance your skills for the actual test.
