    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Marston's (Sidcup, England (UK)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I arrived at my interview, where a few other people were sat. I was welcomed by two staff members who were really happy and talkative. A lady then come down who was also very happy and talkative to take us up for our interview. We sat down and was greeted by about 7/8 managers or so. They were all lovely and none of them made it feel to serious. We had to do a group activity with the other applicants to build a sky scraper out of paper & balance a ball on top. After that we had to do a ‘star of the show’ performance to show what the perfect waitress or waiter is. You could make a song up, a poem or even just draw a stick man & talk about it. The third task we had a interview where we all sat down with the different managers. The lady I had made me feel so comfortable & I was only asked 3/4 questions. I didn’t know how fun a interview could be till interviewing with Marstons! I was also offered the job next day which I am starting soon.
