I applied online. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon (Liverpool, England (UK)) in June 2016.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon (Burton upon Trent, England (UK)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview went extremely well and the lady who interviewed me said she was very impressed and was confident that I would receive a call back regarding the job offer, so I was almost certain that I was successful, two weeks later, no call back whatsoever, plain rude and job was given to somebody else.
    Led on to believe a false sense of hope. Terrible company, don't even bother.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon in January 2019.

    Interview

    Bad. Interviewer turned up late by 5 minutes, but I wasn’t too fussed. Then asked me questions which felt a bit unrelated to the job. Also, I said “the job has good employee ratings”. She said “where did you see these ratings” I replied “on sites such as glassdoor.com”. She replied “I tend not to look at them sites because it’s full of people complaining”. And now, here I am, writing a review because they sent me an email saying “review your interview experience on glassdoor.com”. Also got disturbed half way through the interview by staff telling my interviewer she received “a phone call from her husband”. It was a bit unprofessional, but the interviewer was nice.

    Applied online and was given an interview the following week in the pub. Application process was very simple.

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon (Helston, England (UK)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Very little eye contact from the interviewer. I got the impression the interviewer was trying to promote himself as some kind of trendsetter. He got confused with the questioning from the notes he was using.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon.

    Interview

    When I arrived I was greeted by the pub manager who told me to wait for the kitchen manager. He arrived about 5 minutes later and we sat down in a quieter area of the pub. I was nervous at first but he was friendly and the questions were pretty easy so I relaxed quickly. That was on the Thursday and he told me I would find out how I had done on Saturday but I didn’t find out I was unsuccessful till the following Tuesday. Other than that everything was great.
