    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Royal Leamington Spa, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gourmet Burger Kitchen (Royal Leamington Spa, England (UK)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call a few days letter for a phone screening. The lady on the phone probably did not have signal and I barely understood her. She said she will call by the end of the week her nominees for in-person interview. No surprise she did not call me as she had such a bad signal that she was understanding the opposite of what I was answering.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gourmet Burger Kitchen (London, England (UK)).

    - easy interview, just have to interact with the group members and show the managers and future manager of your restaurant that you are confident and really want this job
    - interview is quite fun e.g. what is in a kiwi burger etc.
    - in each stage they let people go, stating that they'd be unsuccessful at this stage, by the end of it you kind of know you have the job
