A LORRY driver described how a recruiting firm sent him the answers to a test he had to pass for a job with John Lewis.
The test was to test the retail company’s knowledge of key industry guidelines before operating a 7.5-ton delivery truck.
But the man claimed yesterday that an employment agency worker told him what to ask for each of the 21 questions, including health and safety – then asked him to keep it secret.
The HGV veteran, who asked not to be named, said: “I couldn’t believe it. The whole point of the test is to make sure drivers know the law and can work safely.
“It could put under-qualified drivers behind the wheel.
“The consequences can be devastating.”
The man applied for a job at the retailer’s Glasgow distribution depot through an online advertisement.
He then had to take a driving assessment and theory test last month.
But two days earlier, he had received a reply from a senior consultant attaching an e-mail to BrightWorks.
The message said: “Please do not tell anyone that your home is a test.”
Brightwork promised a “full investigation.”
A spokesman for John Lewis said: “We are taking this with immediate effect.
