    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at PizzaExpress (Manchester, England (UK)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Pretty Simple and straight forward. I applied online through their website. Got a call from the store manager a couple of days later asking a few general questions about previous experience being a waiter. Got invited in for a face to face interview a few days after that and met with the manager for a pretty informal chat about what I thought of pizzaExpress as a company, what I would do if a customer was being rude and a time when I worked as a team.
