    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at University of Warwick in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    After applying online on unitemps I was invited to the unitemps office in University House (its now in the Student Union on campus. They basically brought me in to see if I had stupidly coloured hair or some piercings as they can't have waiters looking too outlandish for banquet dinners.
    Luckily my hair and body piercings (i didnt have any) were acceptable and so i was told i had the job after about 5 minutes.
