    Former Employee - Cashier in London, England (UK)

    I worked at William Hill part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours with competitive pay. Training is very good which lasts about 2-3 days. and there arent much benefits to the job other than the pay.

    Cons

    finishing late can become quite a bore! and you can often find yourself working at difference branches. Being around the gambling industry can brush off and you may start to gamble as i did!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at William Hill in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I logged in and completed the online tests which consisted of a numeracy, accuracy and a competency test. When I had completed the test, I waited to hear back from them and 3 days later, I received an email telling me that my application has been progressed to the next stage which involves telephone interview. I booked the telephone interview, had a phone call and passed it as it was quite straightforward.

    I was booked in for a face-to-face interview and was interviewed by two ladies. One asked background questions and the other asked five competency questions.

    First Lady's Questions:
    - What was your previous experience like?
    - What do you know about the role you applied for?
    - Have you been into a William Hill branch before?
    - Will you be able to travel conveniently to the branch you applied for?
    - Why do you want to work for William Hill and Why not other betting shops?
    - Have you got any holidays booked?

    They Spoke to me about the training and benefits. That evening I received a call offering me a job after they said I would have to wait a week.
