    Pros

    Fast paced, fun, and sort of work life balance. Good locations to work at and iconic brand which is expanding

    Cons

    Salaries need reviewing, better 2 way communication not just one way. Promotional development doesn't really happen, just recruit senior jobs from without

    Advice to Management

    Review salaries as not in line with other companies. Practice what is "preached" with development as internal promotions into Ops have been less than 25% in the last 4 years

    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.
