Was this a stupid question?

I applied to Tesco recently. I've just had a phone call asking me to come for a group interview tomorrow.
Just a couple of hours before l need to collect my daughter.
I asked the man who called how long the interview might be?
In my mind ( at the time) l felt l needed to know as l don't have anyone who can help with picking up!
I know it wasn't the perfect question as l know l should just be available
Have l messed things up? If ld had a couple more days to prepare, l'm sure l could have worked something out -but l panicked
I'm just amazed l passed their crazy screening questions! grin

No I think it is a perfectly reasonable and legitimate question! Good luck with the interview

No question is stupid if you don't know the answer.

It seems like a reasonable question to me.

Perfectly reasonable question.
You need to know, so you can make arrangements / organise yourself etc.
Stop worrying and good luck tomorrow.

Tesco employs lots of parents and we all know chn go to school and need to be picked up. If the interviewer hasn't factored this in, I'd say it's them being stupid, not you.

There's nothing wrong with that question at all.

Nothing wrong with the question at all but I work for Tesco so am probably (definitely) extremely bitter-sounding by saying...don't do it!

Thank you all. I know Tesco are more accommodating with that type of thing- but l started to think l'd messed things up!
And thank you for the good luck - a group interview sounds daunting.confused

I just need a job to fit round my Husband- he does really long hours and this is for an evening job...
