    Kitchen Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon in September 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was actually very relaxed, the interviewers (pub manager and kitchen manager I think?) were very chatty and made me feel really comfortable. It definitely left me feeling at ease as this was my first interview. Asked quite a few questions just to do with hours and working in a kitchen specifically, nothing too difficult.

    *Note: I applied for the job on a Saturday or Sunday and they got back to me by Monday/ Tuesday. Interview was on the Friday of that week (so quite a quick process) and they got back to me about whether I'd got the job or not on the following Monday. They had a recruitment day that same week also (which I had to wait for because I was still sorting my bank out) and they want you to start as soon as you want.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon (Blackburn, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    interviewed by unit manager,arrived ontime but had to wait nearly 20 mins asked questions i clearly could not know the answer to, then belittled by pointing out answers, seemed like more of a police interview than a job interview, it is of my opinion that because i had worked for an opposition company in the past neither my skills or talent were taken into consideration
