    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Mitchells & Butlers.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and then had to do numeric tests. Found out almost straight away that I had a phone interview and it took place a few days later. Woman on the phone was extremely friendly and asked fairly simple questions. Few hard ones about the food industry. Found out a couple of weeks later that I had not advanced to the next stage.
