    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Caffè Nero (Sheffield, England (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    They rang me over the phone, the interviewer was quite friendly. It took just over ten minutes. There were pauses in my interview where the interviewer was jotting things down. Don't be tempted to fill in the silence like I did by trying to expand. Once you answer the question, just leave it.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Caffè Nero.

    Interview

    The interview process is ridiulous they phone you up, then you have to go for a 1 to 1 interview some of the questions were irrelevant to the job. They said they would be in contact 2 days after the interview. That never happened it took 4 weeks to hear back from them and by then I had gone for a interview at costa heard back from them straight away. After getting a phone call saying I was successful by this point I had a job at costa. So cafe nero need to up their game a bit.
