    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon (Crewe, England (UK)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Had an informal interview with the manager, discussed the role in detail. One of the main things she asked was what I already knew about Wetherspoons, their history, the charities they work with etc.

    Once I passed this section the next stage was a trial shift in the kitchens. Just keep as busy as possible and ask questions as you go.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon (Gloucester, England (UK)) in July 2018.

    Interview

    Interview was very quick, manager had basically decided as i sat down if i was good enough to get the job or not. Was dressed formally which is apparently rare for staff who apply for the spoons however, I would still recommend this to anyone else who applied. Questions fairly simple, classic interview questions and would like some brief knowledge on what you know about the wetherspoons. Knowing what day dots and SOPs are might also be beneficial for your interview. Smiling is also key, so make sure you do so.
