I applied online for a local customer services job. It immediately said I had not reached the minimum criteria. I'm quite puzzled, as I'm an educated, articulate, hard-working, person. Where did I go wrong? I filled in all the required sections and answered some of their scenario screening questions. Thanks!

Always online recruitment. You have to do your right to work online by scanning in either a birth certificate or passport for example, while applying using the online form. Only once this is confirmed does the relevant store receive your details. You then get called in for an interview. Questions are usually worded 'Tell me a time when you...'. This is then graded afterwards. Flexibility and availability is assessed too. If you get an offer they phone you back with a suggested position, not always the one you applied for, then are invited in for an 2/3 day induction. The whole process takes a long time, in my experience usually a month from applying plus. If the interview didn't go so well and you didn't get selected you are notified by email and do not receive feedback.
